Welcome To Toras Chaim

Mission

Toras Chaim’s mission is to teach every student about Hashem, His Torah and their Jewish heritage.

Letter from the Principal

Toras Chaim is special and unique in the way we create a small community environment in which Derech Eretz is stressed while Torah and general studies are taught with rigor and high expectations.  Chazal have told us that derech eretz is the precursor for full incorporation of Torah.  It is true that Torah can be studied and information learned, but when a student grows up in a community that stresses interdependence, working together, finding ways to get along, the Torah becomes more than a subject, it becomes a life guide.

 

We work to teach students skills how to learn.  The Ben He He tell us in Meseches Avos, "לפום צערא אגרא", or according to the effort is the reward.  Students learn that obtaining success in learning comes from learning strong foundational skills and then working hard to grow.  This is true in general studies also.  Thomas Edison said, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." We help the children learn how to do their very best, and encourage them at every step of their growth.

-Rabbi Mordechai Loiterman, Principal

What our Parents Have to Say

Rebbetzin Chamie Haber

Every time there's a performance  I always notice how every kid is comfortable up there on the stage and every kid just shines in our school.

Shari Berman

I drop off my kids at school they're happy, they come home happy. And sometimes I really think your kids being happy in school is the best testament to where the school is holding.
