DEDICATION We, the graduating class of 1979, dedicate this yearbook to our esteemed Principal Rabbi Shlomo Holland, and our beloved Vice-Principal, Dr. Lorraine Fox. They came to Yavneh this year as a new administration. Together they have shown us what good teamwork can accomplish. We are proud to be the first class to have graduated with such enthusiastic and hardworking people. Their fine efforts and set of values have been an example to each and everyone of us. They make our education fun as well as exciting. We, graduates of Yavneh, consider ourselves fortunate to have Rabbi Holland and Dr. Fox as the administration of our school. Thank you for all of your devotion, THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1979

IN MEMORY OF OUR BELOVED BENEFACTOR SAMUEL A. FRYER A man ' s word and a man ' s deeds . . . When they match, a man is matchless. Thus it was in the Hfetime 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 ha s 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 preaching 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 Founda- tion. Stress its role. Stress the Yavneh Academy. Stress its part in helping our children be Jews. Stress put- ting 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.

v IN MEMORY OF OUR BELOVED DEAN RABBI ZILBERSTIEN Throughout his Hfetime Rabbi Osher Zilberstien distinguished himself by his steadfast dedication and self sacrifice for every national, Torah, and charitable endeavor in our community. In the field of education, he founded the Los Angeles Jewish Academy, which later became our beloved Yavneh Academy. We, at Yavneh, have the honor of having had Rabbi Zilberstien as our dean for the past thirteen years. Rabbi Zilberstien also founded the Pacific Hebrew Seminary. In these undertakings, though he met with violent opposition from the conmiunity, he remained devoted and he succeeded. Rabbi Zilberstien ' s contribution to Torah did not end here. He was also in great measure responsible for the founding of what is now Rambam Torah Institute. It was also Rabbi Zilberstien ' s ceaseless pleading and urging that first brought Yeshiva Univer- sity to the West Coast. The deep roots struck for Yeshiva education through Rabbi Zilberstien ' s strenuous efforts lightened the task of others who followed his noble example and contributed so valiandy to Yesh- iva education in Los Angeles. Dear Graduates, I have pondered upon the proper expression in which I could evaluate these feelings as I reflect upon the progress of an Academy of learning in which I 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 the heirs to Abraham, Moses, and the prophets and sages; a goodly doctrine has been give to us. We are the protagonists of a scarced tradition which has made a mighty contribution to the moral life of mankind. We have the capacity and the instrumental- ity to be an effective healing force in a sick world. We are witnesses to the eternal. Rabbi William J. Spigelman, Dean
