IN MEMORY OF OUR BELOVED DEAN, RABBI ZILBERSTEIN Vt Throughout his lifetime Riibbi Osher Zilberstein distinguislied himself by his steadfast dedication and self sacrifice for every national, Torah, and charitable endeavor in our community. In t!ie field of education, he founded the Los Angeles Jewish Academy, whicli later became our beloved Yavneh Academy. We, at Yavneh, have the honor of having had Rabbi Zilberstein as our dean for the past thirteen years. Rabbi Zilberstein also founded the Pacific Hebrew Seminary, In these undertakings, though he met witli violent opposition from the community, he remained devoted and he succeeded. Rabbi Zilberstein ' s conti ' ibution to Torali did not end here. He was also in great measure responsible for tlie founding of what is now Rambam Torah Institute. It was also Rabbi Zilberstein ' s ceaseless pleading and urging that first brought Yeshiva University to the West Coast. The deep roots struck for Yeshiva education through Rabbi Zilberstein ' s strenuous efforts lightened the task of others who followed his noble example and contributed so valiantly to Yeshiva education in Los Angeles. Dear Graduates, 1 have pondered upon the proper expression in which I could evaluate tliese feelings as I reflect upon the progress of an academy of learning in which 1 had a share in building. My only hope is that it will carry conviction to the generations to come--a love for the spirit of the Torah and its teachings. We are tlie heirs to Abraham, Moses, and the prophets and sages; a goodly doctrine has been given to us. We are the protagonists of a sacred tradition which has made a might ' contribution to the moral life of mankind. We have the capacity and the instrumentality to be an effective healing force in a sick world. We are witnesses to the eternal. Rabbi William J. Spigelman, Dean To the Graduating Class of Yavneh Hebrew Academy: Congratulations upon your graduation and upon your continuation in higher schools of Jewish learning. You have learned much in YaVTieh--much more than the material covered in class. In the course of time you might forget some of the material you learned, But we pray you will not forget the attitude Yavneh has tried to give you, and the feelings it has generated in your hearts. We pray you will always remember the love with which your teachers taught you; the Derech-eretz Yavneh has tried to emphasize; and the emotional ties to our brother Jews, to Torah, and to our G-d and faith that is the f6undation upon which Yavneh stands. I am convinced that Yavneh had been eminently successful in transmitting this feeling of love for Torah, and reverence for G-d. We have done our best. The rest is up to you. We are confident that you will continue as you have begun; and through your serene, kind, dedicated, loyal, emotionally mature personalities- -Torah personalities- -Yavneh ' s name will shine out to all Los Angeles, and wherever you go. May G-d bless you. Best Wishes, Rabbi Dr. Nisson E. Shulman Dean i

In Memory of Our Beloved Benefactor Samuel A, Fryer ff T A man ' s words and a man ' s deeds. . . When they match, a man is matchless. Thus it was in the lifetime of Samuel A. Fryer, Biochemist and philanthropist - a man who merged the worlds of science and religion. Consider: " Life, that superior of all mentors, taught me early that true happiness is to be found in the beneficial use of wealth, not in the mere possession of it. " Consider. " To my mind the loftiest aid anyone can offer is to help educate. . . " Consider; " Religion has not failed us, we have failed religion. The Bible has not failed, it is our failure in not teaching it " Consider: " We have not taught what our sages have emphasized. We must start from kindergarten up. We must teach them the Talmud. We must teach them the ethics of our people. " Yes, consider the words of Samuel A. Fryer. " Beneficial use of wealth. . .to help educate. . . teach them ethics. . . " Here was a practitioner of ethics preach- ing the spread of ethics through education. Here was a man who had drawn from the teachings of life in his fruitful years, who wanted to nurture those who had yet to taste of its wonders. Here was a man radiant with light, dedicated to rekindling the eternal flame, in youth from generation to generation. Yet, he told us in the last days of his life, " Do not stress Samuel A. Fryer. Stress the Fryer Ethics Foundation. Stress its role. Stress the Yavneh Academy. Stress its part in helping our children be Jews. Stress putting education and ethics to work. " Thus did Samuel A. Fryer in the last days of his being chart the course of Yavneh Academy. Thus did he tell us to go forth and teach. And matching his words with deeds, thus did he provide for us the tools with which to carry out his mandate.

As you continue your studies in liigher education at Rambam or another Jewish High School, I hope that you will strive to change the nature of man, instilling in him a new heart and a new spirit. Rededicate yourselves to tlie love of your fellow man and the observance of our Holy Torah. Then you will be truly on your way towards the fulfillment of G-d ' s great dream for man.

Cherish it, for tliese are tlie memories that will linger far into the future. Your graduation from Yavneh is but a milestone marking the end of one phase of your education and the beginning of another. The officers of Yavneh join with your parents in the wish tliat your education is just beginning. We are proud of the op- portunities we have been privileged to offer you and we are looking forward to your future accomplishments, knowing that the foundation forged by the precepts of TORAH is Yavneh. I know that you are leaving with mixed feelings. For years this has been your " home " and you ' re not sure what the future has to offer. Believe me, young ladies and gentlemen, it is a wonderful world. Make the most of it and remember that wherever you go and whatever you do Yavneh will be a part of it. Hy Epstein President Dear Graduates, This is a time of cheer. Looking around our beloved school, I see the radiant faces of Yavneh students, especially those of our graduating class. Your excitement and exuberance permeate the corridors. You are looking forward to new adventures, and a new school and I am proud to know that T have played a part in preparing you for the future. This is a time for sadness. It is the sadness that comes with having to let go. For years we have been a part of each other and the time has come to part. It is also the sadness of pride, the pride that comes witli accomplishment. You, the graduating class of 1973 carry with you all the dreams and hopes that are Yavneh. As P. T. A. president I merely represent tlie entire parent body in wishing you the best the world has to offer. We have done our part. Now it is your turn to take your places as Jews and do your part. Mrs. Debbie Epstein 6 P. T. A. President
