Opportunities at YTE
Yeshiva Torat Emet was founded by a community of families and faculty who wanted to make a difference for the Orthodox Jewish community in Southwest Houston. Their goal was to create a great school based on Torah values aimed at preparing students for a lifetime of learning and growth. These community leaders gave selflessly of their time, abilities, and resources to make YTE what it is today – a school with quality academics that strives to develop the whole person.
With siyatta dishmaya, in just 12 years we grew from 12 students to over 260 currently enrolled, and we are blessed to be in a beautiful building where children have room to learn, exercise, play, and grow. We are mindful of the fact that we are only here because of the generosity of our donors, and we seek to create a culture of philanthropy in which all YTE families work together for the common good of the school. Every family, no matter their financial ability, work hours, number of children, age, or neighborhood, can be involved in helping YTE in some way.
Our students reflect a generous spirit because the adults in their lives model philanthropic behavior. We are thankful to parents who serve pizza lunch, make phone calls before events, sell raffle tickets, offer their professional services, chaperone school trips, serve on a committee or the Board of Directors, and make or solicit donations.
School fundraising events are an integral part of ensuring YTE's financial sustainability and allowing YTE to offer financial assistance to many families. The Annual YTE Gala and its accompanying Journal Ad Book is our biggest fundraiser of the year. To view the video from the 2017 Gala, please click here.
