The wondrous gift of sight enables living creatures to see and to live in G-d’s world. A human being’s clarity of vision, however, creates clarity of priorities, enables man to dream, to set goals, and to thrive on life’s journey. Light bulbs, planes, automobiles, life-saving medical treatment - all were developed by people who had a dream, a vision, as to what they could accomplish; and accomplish they did.
Educators have a mission. It is imperative that a teacher see and envision the potential of every pupil. The instructor must tap into a student’s dream, and help the child actualize his or her vision. As a famous Rabbi said “I may be dreaming, but I am not asleep.”
Yeshivas Darchei Torah’s dedicated staff of visionary teachers and administrators awaken the mind and soul of each 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 actualize his or her personal dreams and vision.
In keeping with this goal, “20/20 Vision” is this year’s raffle theme.
Yeshivas Darchei Torah is turning to you, our dear friends and supporters, to help us realize the potential of each of our dear children, by continuing your support during our annual raffle campaign. With Hashem’s help and your generosity, YDT will continue to provide the sterling education, for which we are known and our hopes and dreams will become a reality.
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 $11,000!! In addition, over $18,000 in prize packages were 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.*
Through the merit of sustaining Torah education, may Hashem’s blessings be visible in all that you do.
