Message from the Head of School
Summer reminds me of camp – both as a camper and as a counselor. Jewish summer camps were where I felt at home. I loved eating in the hader ochel, playing gaga, having “deep” conversations with my bunkmates at night, and joyfully praying outside. In high school and college, I worked at Camp Tova at the JCC in Palo Alto – many of my fellow counselors have become life-long friends and I’ve been married to one of them for 26 years. Read more

Summer Fun with Yavneh
"With the request to "Be Flexible and Stay Connected" from our new Head of School, Cindy Schlesinger, a team of teachers got together and created Summer Fun for our families. We were determined to transform a possible summer of loss and worry into something meaningful! Together we set forth a 6 week series of enrichment courses from math challenges and virtual board games to escape rooms, kitchen science, cooking and art! To top off each afternoon of connection, each evening was capped by an LOL Read Aloud! With the support of so many of our Yavneh families, we were able to raise some money for our beloved school, engage our students and have Summer Fun!
