Friday Candle-lighting: 5:36 PM ~ פרשת פקודי
Dinner Update:
Please take note of the following new format which we will be implementing due to the anticipated large crowd and in an effort to maintain the proper dignity and decorum during the program.

There will be  no set seating at tables this year . Instead, there will be an extensive stand-up smorgasbord-style buffet dinner . We are excited to increase the opportunity for everyone to interact with families from all of our YHT communities!

Please note the newly updated format and schedule for the evening:
  • 8:30 pm – 9:45 pm – Lavish smorgasbord-style buffet dinner
  • 10:00 pm – Program in sanctuary

Program to be followed by an elegant dessert parade, raffle drawing, and dancing!
ואלה יעמדו על הברכה
And these shall be counted among the blessed

PICTURE OF THE WEEK
ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
This past Tuesday, KE and KJ welcomed special guests to school! Grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other special guests joined them for a school day. Our guests learned about our school mission and philosophy, created special crafts, posed for a photo booth shot, participated in a Purim oneg and went to class to meet our wonderful teachers. Visitors noted how warm our school is and how caring our teachers are. Connecting with extended family really brings the YHT family together. We look forward to next week when KC and KW invite their special guests!
