Our School

At Ohr HaEmet, our educational approach aligns with our core values of Torah, Avodah, and Gemilut Chassadim.


Our rich, Sephardic heritage impacts our educational approach with its emphasis on family, community, and Jewish pride.

We maintain a warm and supportive environment, without compromising on our challenging curriculum in both Kodesh and Chol.  This means, that your child is happy at school, while also being encouraged to achieve excellence.

The convenience of one campus. The benefits of separate schooling.

At Ohr HaEmet, our campus caters to all our students; boys and girls.  However, our classes are strictly separate and the schedule is customized so that the boys and girls fully enjoy the campus grounds without mixing.


Even drop off and pick up are supervised by tens of staff members in our highly organized and safe entry and exit procedures. This prevents unnecessary socializing; and our students and staff are accustomed to maintaining and respecting the rules in this regard.

Our Story

Principal’s Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Ohr HaEmet! I am honoured to lead a school that is dedicated to providing a well-rounded education rooted in Jewish values and traditions.

​Our school is a vibrant and dynamic community where students are encouraged to celebrate their Jewish identity, embrace our Mesora, develop their academic skills, and engage in meaningful experiences that will shape their lives for years to come.

Our dedicated faculty and staff work tirelessly to create a nurturing and supportive learning environment where students can thrive and grow.

​At Ohr HaEmet, we believe in the importance of instilling a love of Torah and Mitzvot in our students. We honor the spirit of achievement and celebrate the unique talents and accomplishments of each student. We also recognize the importance of academic excellence and the need to prepare our students for success in the broader world. Our rigorous academic program challenges students to think critically, develop problem-solving skills, and become lifelong learners.

​We believe in the importance of character development and the cultivation of strong moral values. Our students are taught to be kind, compassionate, and responsible members of their communities, both locally and globally.

Communication and teamwork are integral to our educational approach, as we believe in the power of collaboration to inspire and achieve collective goals. Together, we work towards creating a supportive and nurturing environment where every child can shine.


As we embark on this journey together, I invite you to join us in embracing the rich traditions of our heritage while also embracing the opportunities for growth, learning, and innovation that lie ahead. I invite you to explore our website and learn more about what makes our school so special.



כל טוב ובהצלחה,
