FACT: OLIVE WOOD IS A HARD AND RICH-IN-COLOR WOOD, WHICH IS PRIZED ALL AROUND THE WORLD FOR ITS APPEARANCE, DENSITY, STRAIGHT GRAIN AND FINE TEXTURE. AS THE WOOD IS BEING WORKED WITH, IT EMITS A VERY DISTINCT AND FRUITY SCENT.  WHILE IT IS VERY STRONG, IT HAS A HIGH SENSITIVITY TO OUTSIDE ELEMENTS AND INSECT ATTACKS. YET, ITS FRUIT IS A DELICACY, ITS OIL SO PURE. 
 

THIS COMBINATION OF STRENGTH AND SENSITIVITY CHARACTERIZES HUMANITY. MANKIND’S PERSONAL STRUGGLE IS TO PERFECT THIS SEEMING DICHOTOMY, CREATING A HARMONIOUS INNER BALANCE. THE TOOLS FOR SUCCEEDING IN THIS MISSION MUST BE INCULCATED AND ENGRAINED IN ONE’S VERY BEING DURING YOUTH. 
 

YESHIVAS DARCHEI TORAH’S DEDICATED STAFF OF TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS AWAKEN THE MIND AND SOUL OF EVERY CHILD, BY FOCUSING ON EACH ONE’S INDIVIDUALITY AND STRENGTHS. WITH ENCOURAGEMENT AND CLEAR DIRECTION, EACH STUDENT IS EMPOWERED WITH THE FORTITUDE AND CONFIDENCE TO STAND UP FOR HIS/HER BELIEFS AND TO GROW THROUGH LIFE’S CHALLENGES, WHILE STRENGTHENING ONE’S DIGNITY AND REFINEMENT OF CHARACTER.
 

IN KEEPING WITH THIS GOAL, “INNER STRENGTH” IS THIS YEAR’S RAFFLE THEME.
 

OUR RAFFLE GIMMICK IS UNIQUE. THE GRAND PRIZE IS A MONEY POT THAT GROWS DEPENDING ON HOW MANY TICKETS ARE SOLD. LAST YEAR, THE GRAND PRIZE GREW TO OVER $12,000!! IN ADDITION, THIS YEAR OVER $25,000 IN PRIZE PACKAGES WILL BE WON. 
 

THE PRIZE PACKAGE DRAWING WILL BE AS FOLLOWS: THE FIRST WINNING NAME PICKED WILL GET TO CHOOSE THE PRIZE PACKAGE OF THEIR CHOICE. THE SECOND NAME SELECTED WILL HAVE THE NEXT CHOICE. THE THIRD NAME WILL HAVE THE THIRD CHOICE, ETC. THE FINAL WINNER WILL RECEIVE THE PRIZE PACKAGE THAT IS LEFT. EACH WINNER WILL HAVE 48 HOURS IN WHICH TO CHOOSE THEIR PRIZE PACKAGE.*
 

IN THE MERIT OF SUSTAINING TORAH EDUCATION, MAY YOUR INDIVIDUAL INNER BALANCE BE IN SYMMETRY THROUGHOUT LIFE’S JOURNEY.
