B " H Dear members of the senior class: May all the bridges you are yet to cross be the narrow but ever sturdy bridges of Torah. At each turning point in your life — whether educa- tional, personal, or occupational — you will find bridges guaranteed to keep you on the paths of Torah. Of course, I hope you have learned much at Yavneh and have also had a good time. Most of all, I hope this is just a point of transition in your Jewish education and not, G-d forbid, an end. The bridge which lies immediately in front of you should carry you on to further and more intensive Jewish studies. Even the most outstanding students among you have barely passed Aleph Bet in terms of the vast sea of Torah studies. May Hashem bless you with the wisdom to make good use of the remaining years of your youth. May he grant that your parents and all our community see from you true Yiddishe names. Sincerely, ALAN GOLDSTIEN, President Dear Graduates: On behalf of the Board of Directors, 1 would like to congratulate you upon reaching your hard sought goal of graduation. You have diligently and successfully completed courses of Jewish and secular study with conscientious devotion and well earned distinction. It is my hope that, as a result of the knowledge you have acquired at the Yavneh Hebrew Academy you may be inspired to be good Americans and to uphold with courage, pride, and dignity the ideals and Torah of our Forefathers. May G-d bless you in the graduating class of 1979, as well as your par- ents and teachers, with a peace of mind and a harmony of the soul, so that you may contribute to a better and more harmonious Jewish world. JOESEPH K. KORNWASSER Chairman of the Board f The first adult an infant knows are parents. As the child grows and its world expands to include school, the next most important adults are teachers. You, the graduating class, have passed through stages, begin- ning with the child and now presented to us as young adults. We hope that you have many fond memories of special people — parents and teachers, who have tried to guide you down the path of learning and Torah. We wish you continued success in your endeavors and may you remember your years at Yavneh, as being full of joy and hope for the future. ERICA KLIEN and ROSIE SILVERSTEIN PTA Presidents

The teachings of V 3 n transmit to us the knowledge that if one imbues Torah into a child it is as if they participated in that child ' s birth. As there exists a physical birth, so, too, there exists a birth injll ' JniT spiritually. The Torah presents us with a theme for life; a guideline for all human interaction. " To love one ' s fellow man as one loves their own being. " The great Kabbalist Moshe Chaim Luz- zato comments on his Mitzvah and states " u;00 03. " Literally " as one ' s self. " That our care, interest, and concern towards our fellow man be " Exactly Equal " to our self care, interest, and con- cern. It is not simply a play on words, but rather an actuality of being. It is a state of harmony between human beings, a state where you and your chaver become one, a true blending of souls. Rav Eliyahu Dessler presents us with the key to the reality of this lifes ' theme. " nil ' 113 " the power to give. As we give of ourselves, we, too, give a part of ourself. The giver causes their personal- ity to merge and blend, to unite with his fellow man.
