MR . AND MRS . CHAIM AND BRACHA SCHULHOF
GUESTS OF HONOR
Oskim b ’ tzarchei tzibbur with dedication and without fanfare , Chaim and Bracha Schulhof invest their talents and resources to help others in a myriad of ways .
They embody positivity and refinement , concern for their fellow Jews , and a commitment to excellence in chinuch .
Chaim , a native of Staten Island , is the son of Mr . and Mrs . Heshy and Nechie Schulhof , who now live in Teaneck . He is an alumnus of YTT of Staten Island and Yeshiva Ohr Hachaim of Queens , as well as Yeshiva Toras Moshe in Eretz Yisrael . He maintains his kesher with many of his rebbeim , including Rav Moshe Meiselman , Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Toras Moshe . Bracha , originally from Queens , is the daughter of Mr . and Mrs . Zev and Terry Goldberg , now members of the Lawrence community .
Chaim and Bracha credit their parents with instilling in them the importance of giving back to Klal Yisrael . Like their parents , they are exemplars of hachnasas orchim , hosting many guests each week and caring for those in need of a warm meal and a listening ear . Bracha ’ s giving nature and vivacious personality have also led her to become involved in redting shidduchim . Chaim is a mainstay of Beis Medrash Heichal Dovid of Lawrence , using his financial expertise to assist and grow the shul . He has served on both the finance committee and executive board of Yeshiva Darchei Torah and has instituted groundbreaking innovations that benefit both the parent body and the Yeshiva .
The Schulhofs also carry on their parents ’ commitment to growth in both yedios haTorah and general knowledge , and they have instilled in their children this same thirst for learning .
It is not by default that they chose to enroll their sons in Yeshiva Darchei Torah ; it is an extension of their determination to give their children the very best chinuch in an environment that encourages and instills outstanding middos tovos . They share : “ When we considered where to enroll our sons , we were most impressed with the middos and yiras Shamayim of the talmidim of Darchei . Every graduate stood out in this way , without exception .”
Their son Yosef is currently a member of the Kibbutz , the Yeshiva ’ s post-Eretz Yisrael beis medrash program , and their younger son Dovid is a sixthgrade talmid . Their daughters attend Machon Raaya Seminary in Eretz Yisrael and Manhattan High School .
As members of the Darchei family for close to fifteen years , the Schulhofs are gratified to have the opportunity to express their admiration and hakaras hatov to the Rosh HaYeshiva , Rav Yaakov Bender and the Yeshiva . They can personally attest to the way special attention is given to every single student to ensure he is maximizing his capabilities and they are amazed at the way Rav Bender is truly involved with all the talmidim , despite the Yeshiva ’ s continued growth .
They also appreciate how this attention to detail extends to every aspect of the Yeshiva ’ s function , including fulfilling the needs of each staff member , using funds responsibly , and initiating new and creative programs . By contributing their time and talents , the Schulhofs play an essential role in facilitating Yeshiva Darchei Torah ’ s unique mandate .
We are pleased to recognize this exceptional couple as this year ’ s Guests of Honor .
