Chanukah Appreciation Gifts

November 2020

Dear JDBY-YTT Parents,

Although סוכות was just recently over, the Women’s Division is already busy thinking about חנוכה .חנוכה is a time for giving thanks to the רבונו של עולם for all the goodness He provides for us. As mentioned in ספרים, it is tradition at this auspicious time to show our הכרת הטוב to our dedicated mechanchim and mechanchos – those who give so much of themselves to infuse our children with תורה and יראת שמים each and every day.

It is especially crucial that this year that we show our schools’ moros, teachers, administration and staff how much we value and appreciate their dedication. We all know that gelt is one way – and a note to our treasured moros, teachers, administration and staff – is an additional way as well. This is the time to ensure that our schools know that their extra efforts during these unprecedented times are noticed and valued.

Please read this carefully.
Please look through these forms carefully. As in past years, the rebbeim are not included in this program because the administration has concluded that a more personal touch is warranted. As mentioned above, a note of appreciation to a rebbe (or morah) goes a long way.

There are two options to submit your Chanukah gifts:

1. Filling out the forms on our updated and easy to use web portal
Please go to and follow the prompts. Payment on the portal is by credit card only. To ensure that our dedicated teachers receive the full benefit of your gift, there will be a $3 service charge per family. The deadline for the web portal is  Wednesday, December 2, 2020.
