The Lessans Family

We are pleased to announce that the Mommy and Me at the Pike Jewish Preschool will be named the Lessans Family Mommy and Me in recognition of Dr Stuart Lessans’ gift in loving memory of his parents Sara and Samuel J Lessans


A retired ophthalmologist and eye surgeon, Dr. Stuart Lessans grew up in Baltimore MD, as part of a close-knit family steeped in Jewish values; the son of a father who had degrees in law and social work, and a mother who was valedictorian at the famed Jews Free School in London, England.  In a modest household, his parents lovingly instilled lessons in charity and justice, a deep respect for learning, and a love of community causes. 


Dr Lessans and his  devoted wife Ellen, a clinical psychologist with a practice in Rockville, also strive to set an inspirational example for their teenage twins, Matthew & Faye, who are in 10th grade at the Charles E Smith Jewish Day School. 


"I know without a doubt that my mom and dad would feel so fulfilled and honored to have the Preschool of the Arts' Mommy and Me named in their memory."
