Head's Welcome

Dear Friends,
Welcome! I am so pleased that you are visiting us online to learn about Tehiyah Day School.
Tehiyah is a Jewish community day school where we strive to awaken intellectual curiosity and a
strong sense of Jewish identity, build a culture of ethical behavior, and connect our students to
the world and to their most authentic selves. Awaken. Build. Connect.
From our founding in 1979, Tehiyah has been a place where our students develop a joyous
personal connection to Judaism. Our strong academic tradition informs our future, and we
continually strive to engage in ongoing academic evolution. This is expressed in the five pillars
of our Bridge to the Future: Project-Based Learning (PBL), Outdoor Experiential Education,
JSTEAM (Jewish, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), Character Development
and the Whole Child.
We are a student-centered school, focusing on the social-emotional as well as cognitive and
physical development of every student. We believe in integrity, thoughtful conduct, kindness
and compassion. We believe in Kavod: respect and acceptance.
I invite you to visit our campus in person to learn even more about our mission, programs and
Linda Riff
Interim Head of School
