This past year, I have worked with the senior administration at Ben Porat Yosef Yeshiva Day School in Paramus, New Jersey on a revolutionary new Tanakh curriculum.

We are coming along beautifully for our special communal programs for the coming year. In my next report, I will post the final schedule. These new programs will take our educational offerings to a much higher level of involvement in the broader Jewish community.


As always, thank you for all of your support, and we will continue to spread our vision to the broader Jewish community.
