VIVA VBS UPDATE

It is with sadness and deep regret that we inform you that VIVA VBS 2020 is suspended at this time and will not be held Saturday, March 21st as planned. This decision was very difficult to make but we are confident that it is the right one, as the health and safety of our community is of utmost importance. The COVID-19 virus carries heavy uncertainty regarding its longevity and severity and we want to protect our community.

Being honored this year means so much to Tahli & Danny Abramovitch and Aileen & Gil Borok. The many gifts and messages to VBS Day School in their honor have touched their hearts. A message from them in response to your support can be found below. Our entire VIVA VBS committee has put in months and months of hard work to create an impactful and memorable event and while it is so unfortunate that we cannot come together as a community to celebrate next weekend, we are exploring ways to recreate the evening in a meaningful way. 

Thank you for your overwhelming support as we navigate the unknown and work together to help protect the wellbeing of our entire community.

Aileen and Gil Borok have been dedicated leaders of the VBS community for more than 15 years. After a foundational educational experience at VBSDS, their children, Jack ‘15 and Estee ‘18, now attend Oakwood. Gil has served on the Day School Board of Trustees with great devotion for ten years, including seven as Vice President of Finance.Gil has also served on the Head of School Support and Evaluation Committee and the Joint Task Force between the Synagogue and Day School Boards. In 2017, Gil was the recipient of the Day School’s prestigious Rita Reznikoff Leadership award for his dedication to the Day School. Aileen has also been a vital leader in the Day School. She co-chaired the Generations Day Committee for eight years and Picture Day for six. She also co-chaired the Sixth Grade Graduation Committee and was a member of the Board Nominating Search Committee. Aileen served as room parent eight out of ten years when her children were at the School. Even though their children are no longer at the Day School, the Boroks remain deeply committed to continuity.
 
Tahli and Danny Abramovitch have been devoted members of the VBS community as parents of Noa (’16), Jacob (’18) and Mia (’20). Danny’s connection to the Day School runs deep, having attended VBS Day School himself. Danny is a member of the VBS Board of Directors and this year spearheaded the first “shulperbowl” event. Together they opened their home to countless Day School events promoting and expanding our community, and are part of the Emerging Leaders Cohort. Tahli has served the Day School Board of Trustees for more than five years. Chairing the Marketing committee and supporting Admissions has been invaluable. Tahli received the Rita Reznikoff Leadership award in 2018 for her personal commitment to the Day School. In addition, Tahli was instrumental in spearheading the playground renovation campaign as well as many other campus upgrades. Tahli co-chaired the Generation’s Day costume coordination for numerous years and served the Parent Organization as either head room parent or room parent each school year. In Rabbi Schuldenfrei’s first year as Head of School, Tahli was an essential leader in the transition as part of the Head of School Support and Evaluation Committee.

 
The Abramovitch’s and the Borok’s are spearheading the Classroom Renovation Project, symbolizing that even after graduation their legacy and ongoing connection will continue to have a transformative impact on our community.
