It was a wonderful undersea odyssey! Here are some great pictures of our Deep Sea Purim Chagigah:
Valley Torah beat MTA by a score of 49-32 in it’s latest game at the Sarachek Tournament. Here is a highlight from the game.
This year’s Chagigah will be next Motzaei Shabbos at 10:00 PM. Here are highlights from last year.
The Varsity team (and Rabbi Stulberger) are on the way to New York for the YU Sarachek Tournament.
Our Rosh Chodesh Adar Breakfast had a surprise visit by a mariachi band.
For only the second time in VTHS history, the Varsity Basketball team made it to the CIF Semifinals. Unfortunately, we lost a hard fought battle to Holy Martyrs by the score of 65-59. Thank you Coach Lior Schwartzberg for your hard work.
The season is not over yet: The team will be heading to New York this week for the YU Sarachek Tournament. We are seeded 5th in the Tournament and our first game will be Thursday, March 2 at 4:00 PM PST. You can follow the team and even watch the games live at the Sarachek website.
The students need to cover their own travel and other tournament expenses. For many of them, this will be impossible without your help. Please help our boys get to the tournament by visiting the VTHS Sports Giving Page.
We’ve made it to the CIF Basketball Semifinals! We will battle it out against Holy Martyrs Armenian HS on Motzaei Shabbos for a spot in the CIF 5AA Championship Game.
The game begins at 8:30 PM this Saturday night (February 25) at Holy Martyrs in Encino. Come early to make sure you get a seat.
Ami Horowitz is a political analyst, filmmaker and member of VTHS Class of 1990. When President Trump referenced Ami’s video about immigrants to Sweden, the Twittersphere (and everyone else) went wild. The story – and Ami – made it to the front page of the New York Times. Even more importantly, Ami was the MC at the VTHS Dinner this past November (pictured below). Congratulations Ami!
CIF released the brackets for this year’s playoffs. Valley Torah has a bye in the first round and will play the winner of a wild card match.
Rabbi Stulberger met with many alumni while he was in Israel. Here is one picture. More to come.
Construction is nearing completion on our new Boys Division Recreation area.
Here is a short tour of the grounds:
The volleyball court is at the back of the new Recreation Area (the brown colored cement is the running track that surrounds the entire area).
In between the volleyball court and the basketball court is the picnic area. We still need delivery of the picnic tables and chairs.
The basketball court comes next. We are still waiting for benches and two sets of bleachers.
At the very front of the Recreation Area is the workout space. We are installing 15 pieces of workout equipment similar to the ones found at LA parks.
There is still street and sidewalk work that needs to be done at the front of the property. Hopefully, you will be receiving an invitation for ethics’s grand opening very soon.
