    ~Jonathan Falk ('12)

  • When I entered TABC I was not confident enough to speak in front of a class of 30. By the time I graduated I was the student council president. Now I give tours and happily talk in front of large groups of random museum visitors."

    ~ Yoni Liss ('98)

  • It [TABC] helped me grow as a Jew. I became a better person because of TABC's chesed opportunities. I think a big role of my growth in TABC had to be the interest the faculty put in me and each and every student.

    ~ Chaim Sussman ('97)

  • The class of '04 is a fantastic group of people. I established connections with my classmates that remain some of my strongest personal connections to this day. I should also point out that my Rabbeim and Teachers were some of the most caring and brightest people in the business, and I still speak to many of them on a regular basis.

    ~ Avi Eserner ('04)

  • It [TABC] definitely opened my eyes towards what it means to be a religious Jew, one who values Torah, the community, and Eretz Yisrael. The school is a very family-oriented place, very inclusive, and helped me forge friendships I will have forever.

    ~ Eitan Rapps ('06)

  • The focus, in both religious as well as secular classes, on Orthodox values gave me a greater appreciation for them. Most importantly, I developed a sense of being able to view all areas of life (secular and non-secular) through a religious, Orthodox prism - a sense that everything I do can be an expression of Avodat Hashem.

    ~ Dani Shaffren ('04)

  • Band Club

    Posted June 15, 2015

    Earlier this year, TABC's Band Club started their first year with its new music director, Steve Bill and student leader, David Berger ('15). Comprised of eight students, the band met weekly and played instrumental covers of songs such as "Chameleon," "Layla," "Sunshine of Your Love," "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" and more. The band also played the American and Israeli Anthems at the opening Hockey Game and at the Yom HaZikaron program. The students who participated really enjoyed being part of the band because it gave them the opportunity to express themselves musically within TABC. Next year, the band hopes to record some songs and have a performance for both students and parents. Please see Yosef Kagedan '16 if you are interested in joining next year.

  • Senior Dinner

    Posted June 15, 2015

    The seniors and faculty came together this pastWednesday evening for our seniors "last hurrah," Senior Dinner. While enjoying a delicious Dougie's dinner, the seniors heard a d'var Torah from Rabbi Adler and a recap of their four years at TABC from Student Council President, Azi Fine. Math League certificates and the Lakeland Bank Scholarship were also awarded. The seniors and faculty played a game of Family Feud based on a survey that the seniors filled out about themselves and their classmates. It was interesting to see who they voted the best dressed, funniest and the person who slept the most in class. The evening culminated in a "stroll down memory lane" slide show and distribution of yearbooks. Mazal Tov class of 2015! For more photos click here.
