Yeshiva University High Schools holds its annual dinner on Wednesday, April 6, at 6 p.m., at Marina del Rey in the Bronx.
Abby Lerner of Great Neck, N.Y., and Rabbi Mark and Jill Wildes of Manhattan are the guests of honor. Rafael and Shifra Yehoshua of Great Neck are the school’s Parents of the Year and Megan HLZacks of Manhattan will be given the Faculty Recognition award.
Ms. Lerner is the admissions director at Yeshiva University’s Samuel H. Wang High School for Girls (Central) and has taught there for 28 years. The Wildes, founders of the Manhattan Jewish Experience, work together to connect unaffiliated Jews in their 20s and 30s with Judaism and the Jewish community. Rabbi Wildes is the brother of the former mayor of Englewood, Michael Wildes. The Yehoshuas are dedicated to Central and to their local community. Ms. HLZacks chairs MTA’s science department.
In addition, due to a gift, the YUHS board of trustees announced a $1 Million Challenge: every donation towards this year’s dinner will be matched dollar for dollar with the goal of raising $1 million to help strengthen the future of YU High Schools.
