Dear Yavneh Family,
We are thrilled to announce that Yavneh Academy will commemorate our 75
anniversary with a Hachnasat Sefer Torah, as we welcome a new Sefer Torah to Yavneh the week of Shavuot.
Anniversary Sefer Torah Dedication provides every member of the Yavneh family with an opportunity to participate in this unique mitzvah. With tremendous gratitude, we thank Deena and Mendy Segal for their inspirational leadership, dedicating the Torah in memory of the children who perished in the Shoah. Please join them by clicking
to view the many giving opportunities.
This effort, combined with our first ever community-wide Siyum Tanach, will have a tremendous impact on our students, impressing upon them that at any and every meaningful life event, we place Torah study at the core. Our children will understand that the Torah guides our celebrations, be it a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, wedding, milestone birthday or significant anniversary, elevating the entire experience.
Together, let's celebrate our 75 years of providing a stellar Torah education by bringing a new Sefer Torah to Yavneh Academy, and sharing that excitement with our children.
We express our hakarat hatov to Jocelyn Jonas and Deena Segal for co-chairing the dedication.
Rabbi Jonathan Knapp
Head of School
