Yeshivat He'Atid Wishes Our Supporters A Shana Tova - Plus, an Update

September 27, 2011 | 28 Elul 5771                                        

Dear friends and supporters of Yeshivat He’Atid,

As a new year approaches, we are thrilled to announce that we are committed to going forward with our plans to open Yeshivat He’Atid in September 2012. We plan on opening registration shortly after Succot and we have scheduled our open house on the evening of Monday, November 14th. Please save the date – more details to follow.

During the past several weeks, there have been several exciting developments as we continue to work out the details, including hiring a school leader, exploring potential partnerships, and securing additional start-up funds.  To date, we have raised nearly $350,000 and discussions are in the advanced stages with other donors who are interested in providing significant funding.

In terms of the search for a school leader, we are excited that we have identified several qualified candidates and we expect to make a final decision by the end of October. At that point, we will most likely cash checks. We will be sure to notify you before we do so.

Yeshivat He’Atid would not be a reality without your support, for which we are very grateful. In addition, kudos to the many individuals who continue to work selflessly and tirelessly to help bring Yeshivat He’Atid to fruition. We look forward to working together to implement our vision for a high quality, affordable and replicable yeshiva day school model that embraces 21st century learning and will help ensure the future of Modern Orthodoxy.

As always, we are happy to answer any questions you might have. You can contact us at

Wishing you and your families a very sweet and fulfilling new year.

Shanah Tovah,

The Board of Directors, Yeshivat He’Atid
