Volunteer Opportunities

How can you get involved as a parent?

We appreciate community involvement and have many volunteer opportunities available.  Tiferes has an active Mothers’ Association as well as various committees, including Fundraising and Special Events, where volunteers are welcome. Community members also have the opportunity to contribute their talents during school hours by teaching during Special Activity periods, or speaking on various topics.

Mothers’ Association Projects: The goal of the Tiferes Bais Yaakov’s Mothers’ Association is to support the school by giving of our time and funds to provide additional programs, equipment and the little “extras” that would otherwise not be possible.

Our goal each year is to enhance what the school and staff work so hard to provide to our girls. This past year, among other projects, we raised funds to provide the school with additional  smartboards.  Our last project for the year we sent out a 2014 Shavuos Cookbook which was well received by the community. If you would like to purchase a copy of the cookbook please contact Deena Marder.

We are always happy to take suggestions. Please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas or would like to get involved.

How can you get involved as an alumnae?

We are always happy to welcome our alumnae at school events and programs.  Graduates of Tiferes serve as tutors for our current students and arrange class reunions. Our alumnae have used their unique skills to teach our girls during activity period, and help with the bi-annual Production.  Please contact Mrs. Kleinman at mrskleinman@tiferesbaisyaakov.com

It is truly wonderful and always appreciated to see our alumnae giving back and showing their Hakaros Hatov to the school and their close, ongoing connection to Rabbi Feigenbaum and the entire staff. Your contribution of time and talent/expertise will not only help us to continue to provide our girls with the wonderful opportunities you had, but will also show our girls through your actions the Tiferes way of passing the torch to the next set of graduates as they continue their educational journey.
