The Yeshiva Ketana of Queens is extremely pleased to be honoring Dr. and Mrs. Ellie Bennett at this year’s dinner reception on June 8 at the Young Israel of Queens Valley.
Ellie was born and raised in Kew Gardens Hills. He attended Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe, Yeshiva Shaar HaTorah, and Mercaz HaTorah in Eretz Yisrael. After learning in Israel, Ellie proceeded to go to New York Medical College and graduated in 2002.
Sarale (nee Greenberg) attended BYA in Brooklyn for both elementary school and high school. She graduated from Touro College and is a licensed CPA as well as a personal trainer.
Ellie has a private medical practice in Kew Gardens Hills, which he opened in 2005. The office is open essentially every day other than Shabbos or Yom Tov. Ellie played a leading role in the Jewish community during the COVID crisis. He was critical in rallying the community to take necessary precautions to fight the disease. Many people turned to Ellie for testing and treatment. He was always available and treated them in a calm, reassuring manner. Many people owe their lives to him, and we are all indebted to him for all he has done. Ellie has said that he learned from his father, Dr. Leslie Bennett, to always treat his patients like family.
Ellie and Sarale are very proud of their children, Ari, Shani, and Tzvi. Ari, 22, graduated Yeshiva Ketana in 2012, Yesodei Yeshurun in 2016, and then went to Yeshivas Toras Moshe in Israel for two years. He is currently learning in Yeshivas Ohr HaChaim and graduating from Touro College with a degree in Computer Science. Shani, 19, went to the Bais Yaakov of Queens and Shevach High School. She is currently earning her master’s degree in speech therapy from Sara Schneirer. Tzvi, 14, is graduating Yeshiva Ketana next week. Tzvi is Yeshiva Ketana’s resident in-house computer expert. He is in charge of arranging anything computer-related in class and is the editor of the yearbook.
Ellie and Sarale are very community-minded. Ellie has been volunteering with Hatzalah since 2001, and Sarale has been the treasurer of the Yeshiva Ketana Parent Association for eleven years. We appreciate all the Bennetts’ involvement in the community.
Yeshiva Ketana expresses the hope that Hashem should continue to bentch this amazing family with much Yiddishe nachas, gezunt, brachah, and hatzlachah.
