We would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Grand Purim Celebration this weekend.

Their generous giving is a tribute to the commitment to our school and our congregation. A special thanks to our volunteers and staff volunteers who contributed to our event’s success.

Come one, come all! Join us for a grand Purim celebration.

This year’s Purim event will be the biggest and best ever as we celebrate the lifetime achievements of our beloved and retiring senior rabbi David Rosen. We will celebrate a “Sunday in the Park with David” on March 4, 2018, from 4:00–7:00pm. Our entire Beth Yeshurun community is invited to celebrate marvels of the past and the present. Together we will delight in the festival of Purim and praise the resilience of our people.

On August 26th, just eight days in to the 2017-2018 school year, Hurricane Harvey changed the lives of everyone in living in Houston. Unprepared for such an epic disaster Beth Yeshurun Day School was determined to fulfill its commitment to education and find a place for all students to attend school. With outstretched arms our community partners at Congregation Beth Israel, The Shlenker School, and The Emery/Weiner School welcomed our students on to their campuses while synagogue and school administrators set to the work of rebuilding our beloved school.

Beth Yeshurun Day School could not be more grateful to the incredible outpouring of support we have received from our synagogue and community partners. Will you continue to help us during this time of rebuilding for the future? We are asking you to please be a sponsor for this grand Purim celebration so that we may help bring more of our own school campus back to life.
