Yeshiva University High Schools welcomed more than 500 guests at its Annual Dinner of Tribute on Monday, January 7th at Marina del Ray.  Guests joined the YUHS journey and explored the strong mesorah, top-tier education, and powerful legacy that both Yeshiva University High School for Boys (MTA) and Yeshiva University High School for Girls (Central) are known for.  The Dinner paid tribute to Guests of Honor Jonathan (‘91) and Jessica Landa (YUHSB parents), Robin and Nazila Baradarian (YUHSG parents); Faculty Award recipients Liora Haibi (YUHSB) and Leah Moskovich (‘07, YUHSG); and Alumni Achievement Award recipients Shuey Jacoby (‘02, YUHSB) and Rabbanit Shani Taragin (‘91, YUHSG).  

The dinner is a celebration of the Yeshiva University High Schools.  It brings together our impressive parent body, which is comprised of educators, including elementary school principals, Jewish communal leaders, and parents from different communities, along with YU Roshei Yeshiva, and other distinguished guests,” said YUHSB Head of School Rabbi Joshua Kahn.  “Through our honorees, we pay tribute to the dedicated members of our community, as well as highlight our values of Talmud Torah, academic excellence, commitment to middos and holistic development, leadership, and cultivating the talents and interests of our talmidim.”

The program included a video series highlighting each honoree as well as the strong Torah, academic, and extra-curricular programs provided by the Yeshiva University High Schools.  “Our Annual Dinner is a celebration of the Yeshiva University High Schools’ mission to build pathways for success for all of our students so that they can grow as b’not and b’nai Torah with an enthusiasm for their avodat Hashem and for the myriad ways in which they contribute to our community,” said YUHSG Head of School Mrs. CB Neugroschl.  “Our honorees inspire all of us to treasure the special school community we have and to invest in our children because they will be our future."

The event concluded with a Student Activities Fair, where both YUHSB and YUHSG students showcased their talents in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, including Chess, Robotics, Torah Bowl, Rambam Bekiyut, Coding, and Math.  Guests enjoyed interacting with students and learning more about their intellectual pursuits.
