A select group of prospective students from across LA attended our Mini-Experience yesterday.

Fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins and brothers joined our students for our Generations Breakfast and Learning.
9th Grade had their class Chagigah last Thursday and it was a blast! Students enjoyed a sushi lunch that was enhanced by the Divrei Torah of fellow classmate Ariel Cohen. Afterwards the class played a getting to know you game and had a donut decorating competition. It was a special time spent together and getting to know each other even more. Thank you to the students who planned the event – Rena Cooper, Miriam Eisman, Tari Gottlieb, and Esther Saeedian.
10th Grade had their Chagigah this past Tuesday and enjoyed a special lunch, game, and cookie decorating. Thank you Mrs. Segal, Miss Gohary, and Mrs. Rosenberg for coordinating.
To commemorate Veteran’s Day, Valley Torah Girls Division heard from Major Dr. Eli Ziv about his experiences in the US Army Reserves serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan. After a very informative presentation, students created Tefillah cards for Jewish soldiers in the US army to be distributed through the organization Kosher Troops.
Today’s Rosh Chodesh breakfast was extra-grand to also celebrate the end of a sensational WASC visitation. The WASC visitation was very impressed with the school and especially with our students. Mr. Tomer Kleinman, our Boys Division Secular Principal spearheaded all WASC related activities. Rabbi Stulberger presented him with a token of our appreciation for all his work.
The breakfast included lox and bagels, scrambled eggs, chocolate milk and more.
The breakfast concluded with the presentation of the first quarter awards:
