Dayton teen Tamir Rastetter is the 12th student to recieve the scholarship since its inception in 2006

The Jewish Foundation of Greater Dayton is pleased to announce Tamir Rastetter has been named as this year’s recipient of the Heuman Scholarship. Tamir recently graduated from The Miami Valley School. He will attend The Ohio State University in the fall, where he is majoring in Business Administration, specializing in International Business. After graduation, Tamir would like to start his own business.

When asked why he decided to pursue this career path, Tamir said, “I want to do something that will positively impact people’s lives. I
watched my mother start her own business, and I see that it can be a rewarding experience.”

Tamir is very active in both the Jewish and general community. Outside of his studies, Tamir participated in an array of activities while at The Miami Valley School including soccer, basketball, Model UN Club, Investment Club, Aviation Club and Prom Committee. He has also worked at Chipotle for the past year, and plans to work there while in college. When he has downtime, Tamir enjoys playing video games.

Tamir is the son of Dr. Danielle Rastetter and Dr. Jason Sobel. He is a member of Temple Israel, where he was an assistant teacher after graduating Sunday school. He was also a member of the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) and a leading member of Temple Israel’s youth group.

Mazel tov Tamir!
