CONGRATULATIONS QUEENS BEES!!
OUR 30TH ANNUAL DINNER!!
This past Motzaei Shabbat was indeed a night to remember! Almost 900 parents and friends of Yeshiva Har Torah gathered to celebrate our yeshiva and to pay tribute to a number of individuals whose leadership has been extraordinary. At the program which followed, a special video tribute to Mr. Harvey Kaylie, z”l, was shown and a presentation was made to Mrs. Gloria Kaylie, accompanied by two of her grandchildren. As the YHT Class of 1999 celebrated the 20th anniversary of their graduation from YHT, remembrances were shown in a special video. The Faculty Award for Distinguished Educational Leadership was presented by Mr. Ed Fox to Rabbi Yisrael Silverman as he completes twelve years of service to YHT and an incredible 45-year career in Jewish education. Ms. Pesha Kletenik presented the Tomchei Torah Award to Rachel and Revaz Chachanashvili in appreciation of their unwavering support of our yeshiva and their community involvement. The Pillars of Jewish Education Award was presented to Ilanit and Dr. Soleiman Rabanipour by President Dr. Ari Gross in recognition of their support and participation in so many aspects of life at YHT for close to eighteen years . The presentation to our Guests of Honor, Lisa and Eli Schilowitz, was made by Rabbi Menchel. The Schilowitz’s have dedicated countless hours and have implemented innumerable initiatives which have enhanced so many areas within YHT.  Mazal Tov!
