Hachnassas Sefer Torah

HachnasasSeferTorah web.jpg

To recognize the amazing work of Mr. Sam Menlo, ז״ל, and his family, יבל״ח, Valley Torah commissioned a beautiful new sefer Torah in Mr. Menlo’s memory. This Torah will be completed on Sunday, March 31.

Please join together with the rest of the Valley Torah community and dedicate a pasuk, a word, or any other section of this special Torah at www.MenloTorah.com.

If you are able to, you can fill in an actual letter in this Torah. You have two opportunities:

  • On March 31 we will have a Torah celebration in the city at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Frank Menlo. From 10:00 AM until 11:00, our sofer, Rabbi Shimon Kraft, will be helping everyone that dedicated a section to fill-in a letter.
  • Later in the day, at 1:30 PM, Rabbi Kraft will continue filling in the letters at the Valley Torah High School Boys Division campus (12517 Chandler Blvd.). At 2:30 the Hachnasas sefer Torah will begin as we dance the Torah into our beis medrash.

Please join us in the City or the Valley – or at both locations (refreshments will be served). We are looking forward to seeing you.

Dedications for New Sefer Torah

Torah ad small

You have the opportunity to become part of Valley Torah history. For the first time ever, Valley Torah is writing a new sefer Torah – and we want you to participate in its writing.

The new Torah is dedicated in the memory of Mr. Sam Menlo, z”l. Mr. Menlo stood up to ensure that there will be a Jewish future for our children. By participating in this Torah, you will also secure a Jewish education for our students. You can dedicate a parsha, sentence or word in our new sefer Torah.

By taking part in this unique mitzvah of writing a sefer Torah and supporting our students, you will also be showing your appreciation for Sam Menlo and his dedication to rebuilding Torah after the devastation of the destruction of European Jewry.

Please take a moment right now to visit our Menlo Torah site and and review your dedication opportunities. Please choose the most generous option possible.

Lev Stark – Our New Executive Director

image1We are thrilled to announce that Mr. Lev Stark will be joining Valley Torah High School as our new Executive Director. Lev will be overseeing and upgrading our business office with a focus on improving customer service. In addition, Lev will be joining our fundraising team and using his experience and expertise in marketing to expand and enhance our community presence. We look forward to his start at Valley Torah after Pesach.

Mr. Stark is no stranger to Valley Torah. In fact, Lev is a graduate of the Valley Torah class of 1989. In addition, Lev and his wife, Amy,  have been parents at our school for the last five years.

Lev is currently the Executive Director of Yavneh Hebrew Academy. Since joining the management team of Yavneh, he has played an integral role in many enhancements to the school’s operations as well as its marketing strategy.

The Valley Torah community looks forward to Lev joining us in May, and we are confident that he will contribute greatly to the continued growth of the school.
