As I contemplate the last 12 wonderful years here at the Cheder, I would like to give שבח והודאה to the בורא עולם for enabling the Cheder to grow and reach great heights. Our Cheder truly doubled in size, not only in כמות but in איכות as well. 

People sometimes ask, what makes our מוסד special? I think that there are five factors: Firstly, Rabbi Gopin, שליט”א and Mrs. Ehrentreu, תחי’, our הנהלה of לימודי קודש and חול respectively, take their level of caring to the nth degree. Secondly, our wonderful staff of Rabbeim/teachers “bleed Cheder blue”. Rabbeim will call me late at night or leave a message at unearthly hours of the morning asking about what they can do to help a particular talmid. 

Thirdly, we are blessed with extremely devoted, supportive and knowledgeable parents whose only wish is to see their children thrive in all areas. Our Mothers Association is a dynamo of energy and fresh initiatives, bringing smiles to our talmidim on a regular basis. Fourthly, we have an incredibly supportive staff of remedial Rabbeim and teachers and an office staff that’s unparalleled in its devotion to our Cheder. All of this would not be possible without the encouragement and hard work of our executive board of directors; who despite the challenges of meeting the Cheder’s growing budgetary needs, have uncompromisingly and selflessly risen to the challenge. Finally, we are blessed with a Cheder of beautiful, eager to learn and exuberant precious נשמות, who make it a pleasure to come to school each and every day.
