YeT, wiTh each new generaTion There arise new challenges To TesT
man's ingenuiTy and moral sTrengTh. The challenges oT The space
age, nuclear weapons, and Technology are characTerisTic oT a new
era unknown To mankind one hundred years ago: and The way we
meeT and conquer These challenges Today will inTluence The TuTure
Aurora, The rosy-hued Dawn, signiTies The end oT darkness
and The beginning oT a new day-a new liTe. This renewal oT lighT
each day is The promise oT Dawn and causes "hope To spring
eTernal in The human breasT." lT is This hope, This TaiTh, This giTT oT
Dawn-G-d's creaTion-ThaT is man's salvaTion. ThaT and man's
indomiTable will To survive are why humaniTy exisTs Today, despiTe
The obsTacles and sTruggles ThaT seek To vanquish iT.
WhaT is True oT all mankind is, perhaps, even more True oT The
Jew. l-le has had To sTruggle againsT The inTolerance oT man and
The persecuTion oT naTions. l-le has wiTnessed The enslavemenT, The
exile, and The genocide oT his people: buT, because oT his deep
and imperishable belieT in G-d and l-lis Torah, he has emerged
TriumphanT, wiTh digniTy and greaTness. Judaism, Too, embraces
The concepTs oT birTh and eTerniTy. WiTh each generaTion our
ancienT religion is imbued wiTh new liTe-in a sense, given a new
Dawn. YeT, The original spiriT and meaning oT Judaism remains To
guide us Through TuTure decades.
Love oT G-d and man is The heriTage oT The Jewish people.
lT is a heriTage ThaT we The graduaTes oT T962 are proud To bear
ai we ioin our people and all mankind in The endless sTruggles

On this joyous occasion in your lives, when you have reached an important mile-
stone in your preparation for the fullness of the days to come, I am happy to greet you
and to wish you well. You have completed successfully the course of studies prescribed
in the English and Hebrew departments in our High School-some with distinction-
all with credit to yourselves, your parents, and to our great institution, During the most
formative years of your lives, you have actively participated in the harmonious blending
and fusion of jewish lore and secular learning.
Whether you choose as your life's work some phase of human knowledge and
dedicate yourselves to study and teaching, or give your energies to the fields of daily
human needs, or devote yourselves to the realm of the spirit, remember the philosophy
and the way of life that you have been taught here. Although the problems that you,
as Jews, must face in this confused world are not always clear, you must, each and all
of you, cling to those elements of our cultural past that have made us great as a people.
You, graduates of Yeshiva University High School for Girls qhlanhattanl have had
an education different from that of the rest of the jewish youth in this country. You have
had an opportunity to learn the value and significance of intense Jewish study, and to
gain a deeper insight into a truer understanding of the jewish consciousness and soul.
With this great common bond, you are strengthened to withstand the material influences
of the time, and are less prone to fall prey to the disintegrating forces which are
threatening to sweep away everything that is dear and precious in life. Strengthen that
bondg unite, assert yourselves and your infiuence in the lives of our youth. so that by
your example you may prove that these years in Yeshiva University High School have
not been in vain, and that the instruction and the inspiration you receive here shall be
a blessing to you and to those who are to be influenced by you.
