Confidence, Challenge, and Character are the principles that animate Beth Yeshurun Day School everywhere you turn. During the school year of 2013-2014 students were taught the importance of Tzedakah (charity). Every Friday, two 5th grade representatives collected monies that the students contributed (two years old to 5th grade). At the conclusion of the school year, the students donated $180.00 to Houston Children’s Charity’s “A Better Night Sleep” program. They wanted to help children who have no beds to have a restful night sleep in a comfortable bed. This was an important mitzvah (act of kindness) for the students of at the Beth Yeshurun Day School.
