The Moriah Association of Parents, known as MAP, is comprised of parents who volunteer their time to organize a wide variety of events and activities at Moriah. The mission of the Moriah Association of Parents (MAP) is to increase Moriah school spirit and enhance the Moriah experience by providing programming for students, parents and faculty that is fun filled, socially interactive and in line with Moriah’s Brit Midot. MAP encourages parent involvement in the school thereby fostering camaraderie among the parent body and identifying and developing future lay leaders of Moriah. MAP's fundraising services offer parents conveniences that simultaneously support Moriah. The funds that MAP raises are given back to the school to support the library, improve school technology and enable purchases that fulfill particular needs of the school. MAP also facilitates well-deserved recognition events for Moriah staff and faculty.
