On Tuesday evening, the larger YUHS community gathered at Marina Del Rey in Throgs Neck to celebrate both MTA and Central; the evening’s theme payed tribute to Building Foundation, Family and Future.

Parents, Alumni, Friends and Seniors enjoyed a massive buffet before the crafted program began with the major announcement of the launch of the MTA Capital Campaign to transform historic Zysman Hall for the school’s second century. Emcee Mr. Harvey Wrubel, member of the board of trustees, went over a variety of the details. After this, Zack Borgen (’17) opened with Tehillim.

Over the course of the evening, we were excited to honor Mr. Alan Goldberg (’72), member of the board of trustees, and his sons David (’06) and Alex (’10) with the YUHS Legacy Award, parents Mr. and Mrs. Dov (’88) and Jacqueline Borgen with the Parents of the Year award, Associate Principal Rabbi Shimon Schenker with the Faculty Recognition Award, and Nathan Lewin (’66) with the Centennial Leadership Award. Over the course of his incredible legal career, Mr. Lewin has argued cases in courts around the country.

Guests also enjoyed the photo booth that was set up and an incredible dessert spread that the evening concluded with. The guests enjoyed the desert while looking at artwork from Central students and music performed by the MTA band.

We were honored to have amongst the guests a variety of RIETS Roshei Yeshiva, both President Joel (’68) and President-Elect Berman (87), former YUHSB Heads of School Rabbi Dr. Michael Hecht (’57) and Rabbi Mark Gottlieb (’87), and the oldest known living alumnus of YUHSB Ira Bernstein (’30).

We are thankful for all the wonderful support!
