Rabbi Davidowitz makes time for each student. He can be seen walking to the mini-mart for an Icee® with students multiple times a day. He connects to our boys on the basketball court, sitting at his piano, and, of course, in his classroom. His warm demeanor helps our students open up to him about their concerns and fears; and his quick smile puts them at ease.
Rabbi Davidowitz is the most recent addition to our Judaic staff, joining us three years ago, but he has already made a significant impact on our students. He was just promoted to be an Assistant Principal where his talents will be put to even greater use.
Rabbi Davidowitz is just one reason to choose Valley Torah.
