Shirley Levine, education icon, dies at 80


Shirley Levine, a leader in Jewish education who founded Abraham Joshua Heschel Day School in Northridge, the first non-denominational Jewish community day school in Los Angeles, died on Jan. 9. She was 80. 

“She was an incredible visionary and the impact she had on Jewish day schools here and across the country is astounding,” said Betty Winn, Heschel’s current head of school. “It’s the end of an era.”

Levine, who served as founding head of school at Heschel for 31 years before retiring in 2003, was one of the first to blend Jewish and secular studies, and believed Jewish learning should be experiential and not contained to the classroom. She placed particular importance on connecting lessons to social action. Moreover, she mentored teachers, helping them inside and outside the classroom, guiding them through their careers. “She saved my life,” said Pam Kleinman, vice principal of student support services at Stephen S. Wise Elementary School, who worked previously as a teacher at Heschel. “Not only was she a leader in academics and teaching, she took a great deal of interest in the individuals who worked under her and she saw potential in people when they didn’t see it in themselves.”

[Read “The passing of an educational giant: Shirley Levine / An appreciation” here.]

Rabbi Jan Goldstein, the school’s first rabbi-in-residence, quoted Heschel when she considered Levine: “Build your life as if it were a work of art.”

“Shirley was such an example of what that quote [means],” Goldstein said.

In 1971, a group of parents in the San Fernando Valley, under the leadership of Rabbi Harold Schulweis and Mark and Ellie Lainer, sought to establish a community Jewish day school. The group turned to Levine, then a full-time consultant with Los Angeles Unified School District, for advice.

“It soon became clear that Shirley was the person to head up the school,” Mark Lainer said in a 2003 interview with The Journal.

Heschel opened a year later, in fall 1972, with kindergartens at Valley Beth Shalom, Stephen S. Wise and Adat Ari El. In 1979, Heschel established its permanent three-acre campus in Northridge.

Under Levine, Heschel’s curriculum effectively blended Jewish and secular studies—common nowadays, but revolutionary at the time.

“Judaism was intertwined into the secular studies so the Judaics became part of the program,” said Larry Kligman, assistant head of school, who will become Heschel’s head of school in 2013. “It wasn’t an island, it was threaded inside the curriculum, so when you were leaning about anything, there was a Jewish core to it.”

Heschel’s model for blending secular and Jewish learning was effective, and the school grew quickly. In 1994, Levin helped four families found Heschel West Day School, now Ilan Ramon Day School, in the Conejo Valley.

Levine grew up in a labor Zionist family with immigrant parents. As a young girl in Cleveland and then Los Angeles, she attended cheder, where she learned to read and write Yiddish. Levine’s parents instilled in their children a deep respect for the dignity of every human being and a love of learning.

Her heart was firmly in teaching, said Lee Shaw, Levine’s sister.

“When you saw her with your students, you saw that this was something she was made to do,” said Shaw, who worked as a kindergarten teacher at Heschel for 35 years.  Although no cause of death was specified, family and friends said Levine had suffered a stroke last year.

Still, “even in her illness, she got things done. She was able to communicate her ideas and touch people’s lives,” Kleinman said. Ultimately, “she was a force that never weakened.”

Levine is survived by her husband, Arnold; children, Mark (Rosy), Darren and Marci (Greg) Egemo; six grandchildren; sister, Lee (Arthur) Shaw; and nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held on Jan. 12 at Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries’ Hollywood Hills location. The family has requested that donations be made to Stop Cancer: The Marni Fund (stopcancer.org/Main/default/t-themarnifund.aspx).

John O. Varble, Brandeis-Bardin ranch manager dies at 83


The legacy of John O. (Johnny) Varble, who died on Oct. 19 at 83 on the Brandeis-Bardin Campus of American Jewish University, will live on forever. Johnny was a dedicated and beloved member of the Brandeis-Bardin community for more than 40 years, leading the ranch staff, and welcoming and supporting all who visited the campus. Johnny also was an award-winning horse trainer and breeder. I had the privilege of working with him for three years and of being his friend for many more. Johnny lived by a set of values that permeated all he did in life, and his devotion to Brandeis-Bardin was unparalleled.  For thousands of people, he represented the heart and soul of Brandeis, and for several individuals, he was a mentor who greatly impacted their lives.

Johnny loved the land; he loved Bardin’s vision, and he loved how the place touched so many people — men and women, boys and girls of all ages. He was shaped by a work ethic that reflected a responsibility to the 3,000-acre campus; he knew every inch of it — where every pipe was and every building. Johnny knew how to fix anything, how to put out fires, repair buildings and the million other things that kept Brandeis functioning. He did not do this because it was a job — he did this because he took great pride in Brandeis and the values that had shaped the place.

He taught not through words, but by actions. Watching him was a great lesson in how to live a meaningful life. He loved his wife, Wendy, who was the center of his life, and he enjoyed all that they shared together. The only thing that could make him get him off a horse or stop working or walking the land was returning to the beautiful home that he and Wendy built. He enjoyed the sunrises and the sunsets. He worked hard, yet always had time to help someone else. He was a great listener.

Johnny’s public persona was that of the quintessential cowboy — self-sufficient, independent, kind and a man of few words.  Yet as soon as you entered into conversation with him, you saw the inner character that shaped his identity. He was a highly intelligent, thoughtful and sensitive human being. He treated people with respect and with honesty. He was not particularly tolerant of laziness, or of people who lacked a deep commitment to the place he loved; he knew that the magic of the place came from just taking time to be there — away from televisions and computers and just walking the land, where he had spent his childhood playing.

Johnny shared a deep bond with the men and women who worked side by side with him, all of them immigrants from the village of El Palmar in Mexico, who have lived and worked at Brandeis for decades. He knew they also loved the place. For them, he was a father, a mentor, a friend.

Like so many others, my wife, Judy, learned a lot about horses, and about life, from Johnny, her teacher and friend. Long before he would allow her to ride a horse on a trail, he showed her how you treat a horse, the nature of the relationship, the discipline required. He understood horses, and they understood him. Like human beings, animals know authenticity — and that’s what was at the core of Johnny Varble.  So many people learned great lessons about life from their time with him on the trails, in the corral and on the roundups.

I will never forget the many conversations I had with Johnny about life, about perspective, about what really matters. This man, who was not Jewish, truly understood the core of Jewish values — and the impact the Brandeis-Bardin Institute experience had on so many people. I always left him having gained a new insight, admiring this man who, like all of us, was made of flesh and blood, yet was able to see the larger picture and live his life in a way that was good to life.

Einstein once said: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Johnny chose the latter. He saw the miracle of nature, of daily life, of human beings, of horses and in the work that provides an inner satisfaction. For those who had the privilege of knowing Johnny Varble, his life and his values, he will always be with us. We are grateful for the miracles that Johnny Varble created each and every day. Our lives will always be enriched because of our friendship with him.

Johnny is survived by his wife of 25 years, Wendy; three sons — Chico, John Jr. and Rich; and five grandchildren.

Rabbi Lee Bycel is president of CedarStreet Leadership and served as president of the Brandeis-Bardin Institute from 2000 to 2003.
