Dr. Richard Cuenca’s Friday Letter: Welcome to Our 44th Year!

It was over four decades ago that a small group of thoughtful and committed Jewish parents convened to discuss the opening of a new Jewish day school. They were driven by a passion for educating their children. They wanted the very best math, science, history, and language arts instruction for their children, but they also wanted much more — a school that embodied at its core the Torah values and teachings that have served the Jewish people for generations.

Wow! Bringing stress home from the office has its consequences. Thankfully there is something we can do for our children that provides opportunities for quality stress-free time. read more Dr. Richard Cuenca’s Passover Letter: Our Most Precious Responsibility
