FOOD for THOUGHT

Yeshiva Ohr Yisrael, focused on excellence in all areas of growth and development, invites community members to participate in engaging conversations on a variety of topics.

Throughout the month of November, YOY will host a series of small dinners, each with a renowned speaker discussing a topic of interest. The small dinner setting will allow guests to engage with our expert speakers and learn something interesting while enjoying a beautiful dinner with one of our gracious hosts. The proceeds from this fundraising event will directly support the continuing growth and development of our students.

We are grateful to our hosts and speakers and look forward to a month of community learning. Please review the exciting list of topics and rank the dinners you wish to attend. All are first come, first serve so respond today! We will do our best to have you placed at the dinner of your choice. YOY is proud to provide “food for thought”, engaging the broader community in our vision of educational excellence.

Tickets are $180 person, and all sponsorship levels include complimentary admission for two.
