Jewish Day School Education Archives - My Jewish Detroit

Dr. Darin Katz

Chief Executive Optimist

Who finds a dream job in the middle of a pandemic? Ask Dr. Darin S. Katz how he’s doing now - mid-way through his first year as Head of School at Hillel – and he answers, “As long as everyone at Hillel is doing well, I’m doing well.” Actually, Darin is managing the challenges of Covid exceptionally well, even while living separately from his family. For the time being, plans for moving to Detroit have been delayed - with his wife, Dr. Marsha Pincus Katz, their son, Jonah (a high school senior) and parents still in the Philadelphia area and older son, Eli, who recently completed graduate school in Baltimore. “Moving? A mere detail to be worked out come spring,” Darin reassures. “We’re all healthy and connected to one another every single day. That’s the important thing. And professionally? I have never been happier. Honestly, I feel like I’ve died and gone to Jewish Day School heaven – the luckiest Head of School of Jewish day schools in the country! And I’m here to tell everyone all the reasons why.”
