Special Schoolwide Chesed Initiative

Dear Yeshivat Noam Family,

Acts of Chesed have always been an integeral part of our Yeshivat Noam education.

There is an inspiring initiative underway, a joint initiative of The Afikim Foundation and Israel's Ministry for Diaspora Affairs, to write a Global Unity Sefer Torah celebrating the 50th Anniversary of a Reunited Jerusalem.

Jews everywhere can inscribe letters in the Torah, NOT with money, but with simple acts of chesed.
To see more information about this global initiative, please watch this 1-minute video!

Since groups may reserve blocks of letters, we've taken the opportunity to reserve a block of 2,000 letters for Yeshivat Noam.
The custom link for our school's block can be accessed by clicking here. 

You may reserve letters for yourself and/or your entire family as a group. It just takes a minute and you can reserve as many as you'd like.

A digital file of all names and deeds will remain permanently with the Torah, which will be dedicated in Jerusalem on May 28, 2017, Yom Yerushalayim. (There's also a Drawing with 3 round-trip tickets to attend the dedication!)

The Torah is being donated to ZAKA in Jerusalem, an emergency response and recovery organization that helps set up houses of mourning whenever the unfortunate need arises.

Challenge yourself to commit many acts of kindness by May 27th. There is no chesed too small! Check out the jerusalem50.org site for some suggestions.

Let's complete the Yeshivat Noam block in the Global Unity Torah and inspire goodness in the world in honor of Jerusalem! (All blue letters are available.)

You can go directly to our block here.

If you have any questions, please contact

Parnes Hayom

Friday, March 17 / 19 Adar was sponsored by  Batya & Nachman Paul,  Debra ('11), Stevie ('14), Jonathan (6 B1) and Sophia (4D), in Honor of all the Administrators, Faculty and Staff, and all of the Members of the Yeshivat Noam Family, specifically to those who made this week's Dinner such a beautiful celebration of our school. We feel privileged to walk beside you.

Monday, March 20 / 22 Adar was sponsored by David, Barbara, Jason and Lexi Schlachter and Rebecca, Greg, Levi (1D) and Dani Eliason in memory of Helen C. Schachter, Levi (1D)'s paternal grandmother. May her neshama have an aliyah.

Monday, March 20 / 22 Adar  was sponsored by Marvin and Claudia Rosenberg   in commemoration of the
recent first yahrtzeit of Sylvia Rosenberg, great grandmother of Eli (8B), Ashira (6 G1) and Ariella (1C) Blumenfeld. May her neshama have an aliyah.

Parnes Hayom is an opportunity to dedicate a day, week or month of Torah study at Yeshivat Noam. Sponsorships may be in honor of a special individual or occasion, in memory of a dear friend or loved one, a birth, annniversary, birthday, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, graduation, wedding, or yahrtzeit. Parnes Hayom is also a meaningful way to pray for a refuah sheleimah, or mark any other significant milestone.

For future sponsorship opportunities please contact Amy Vogel, Director of Development at avogel@yeshivatnoam.org or (201) 261-1919 x126 or click here to submit your sponsorship.
