We were a new family at Tashbar this year. Even though we are not Sephardic, we chose the school for the warmth and joy we immediately felt when we visited the campus. We want our children to connect to Yiddishkeit in a joyful way and believe their learning environment has an enormous impact in that regard. The Tashbar community welcomed our whole family with open arms, and when we have had questions or concerns, they are always heard and addressed right away. On top of all of the kindness we experienced this year, our children have received a stellar education. Tashbar teachers care about their students, and our children feel that and are motivated by it. We feel privileged to be part of the incredible Tashbar family!

Tashbar is my home. It is a place that inspired my growth in Yiddishkeit and gave me the tools necessary to move onto the next chapter of my life – high school! Tashbar focuses on our Sephardic heritage, while providing an unforgettable school experience, with inspiring teachers and a loving atmosphere. The teachers at Tashbar make sure we learn to the fullest extent, but in a fun way, by creating activities that enhance our learning. Our love for Shabbat is emphasized by our weekly Oneg Shabbat – we eat cholent, sing songs, and hear a d’var torah. Junior high partakes in the Shabbat Anticipation Program, SAP, where we focus on one specific shabbat activity each week to make shabbat more special. On Rosh Chodesh we enjoy a special breakfast or activity and a special Rosh Chodesh video for the junior high. Once a week we are treated to an engaging and fascinating d’var torah from our dean, Rabbi Zargari. Thanks to the pride Tashbar has instilled in me, I’m entering high school armed with my Sephardi siddur and ready to embark on a journey that will continue my legacy.
