Yeshivat Noam Annual Dinner Celebrates 21 Years

Over 700 friends and supporters of Yeshivat Noam gathered together on March 30 to pay tribute to the deserving honorees and to celebrate the school’s accomplishments. The theme “Am Echad b’ Lev Echad” captured the magic in the air as the Yeshivat Noam community gathered for the first in-person Annual Dinner since 2019!

This year’s honorees provide a perfect illustration of the attributes and dedication that brought Yeshivat Noam to where it is today. Annie and Yale Baron and Chana and Dan Shields both prioritize a commitment to Yeshivat Noam and the larger Jewis community by donating their time, skills and resources to the greater good. Morah Yael and Morah Adina are being recognized for their selfless dedication to Yeshivat Noam. Both of these fantastic educators contribute to the growth and development of the students.

The impressive Dinner co-chairs who managed the event details and ensured that the evening was beautiful were Becky Schmutter, Estee Hirsch, Elissa Seltzer and Lisa Mandelbaum.

The Campaign co-chairs worked with a team of campaign ambassadors and the director of development, Amy Vogel, to raise over $1.1 million for the school. According to Vogel, “The tuition alone does not cover the cost of running a top-notch Jewish day school. Yeshivat Noam and all the schools in this community rely on donors to fill the gap. One of the reasons that there is a gap is due to our needs-blind admissions policy. Our goal is to offer each student a Yeshivat Noam education regardless of their ability to pay the full tuition. We are grateful to the parents, grandparents, alumni families, alumni and community members who made a donation to help us raise important scholarships for our students.”

The entertainment of the evening was enjoying the fun, creative school videos. A special surprise music video in honor of Morah Adina, music teacher extraordinaire, was written by Noam parent Randi Wartelsky and recorded professionally by Noam parent Jonathan Rimberg. Another more comical video that grabbed everyone’s attention was developed and written by Rabbi Ariel Bannett, middle school rebbe.

Head of School Rabbi Chaim Hagler has been at the helm of the institution since the school opened its doors 21 years ago. The co-presidents of the Board of Trustees, Yael Herman and Binyamin Rieder, dedicate themselves each day to the governance and oversight of the school.
