    ~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."

    ~Anonymous ('09)

  • I developed friends, teachers, and rebbeim for life.

    ~ Ari Rosen ('06)

  • TABC gave me confidence and leadership skills that I have used since leaving the school and becoming a college Hillel president. TABC taught and helped me to learn more about certain subjects of which I now know better than many people I know.

    ~ Joshua Rubin ('08)

  • It [TABC] turned me from an awkward 14 year-old to a confident 18 year-old ready to face the world.

    ~ 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.

  • After nearly 15 years, most of my closest friends are the ones I made in High School. I still have a good relationship with several of the rabbeim.

    ~ 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)

  • Varsity Hockey Remains On Top - PART II

    Posted January 12, 2015

    On Wednesday night, the Storm varsity hockey team traveled to Kushner to take on the 7-2-0-1 Cobras. Both teams came out strong, exchanging chances during the first period. In the second period, Yair Knoller ('16) opened the scoring, putting one past the Kushner goalie to give the Storm the 1-0 lead. Shortly thereafter, the Storm took a penalty and on the ensuing power play, the Cobras tied the game up at 1. Following some back and forth play and a great effort by Calev Minsky ('16) and Daniel Levy ('16) on another penalty kill, the Storm went on their first power play in the portion of the third period. Off of a pass across by Ari Fuchs ('16), Alex Malech ('15) buried a slap shot in the back of the net to give the storm a 2-1 lead. Alex Kalb ('15) played well in net and, along with the Storm defense, kept the Cobras off the board for the remainder of the game, giving the Storm the 2-1 win to improve to 10-0.

  • Holocaust Survivor Special Visit to TABC

    Posted January 12, 2015

    On Monday, December 29th, students in Mrs. Reichardt's Holocaust Studies class were privileged to hear a talk by Mrs. Rosa Sirota, a Holocaust survivor and noted educator. Mrs. Sirota was born in Lvov, Poland, and her story is one which our students found most inspiring. She spent one class period detailing her experiences with students and another for a Q and A, which both she and the students enjoyed tremendously. Although Rosa says that she takes no credit for being "smart" in order to ensure her survival, and attributes it to luck, one student had a different view which he shared in his thank you letter to Rosa: "To be honest, I don't believe in luck, but I do believe in Hashem and I saw Him at every twist and turn of your story. It showed me how He truly does get involved in our day to day lives, so for sharing that with me, I must thank you as well. Your story taught me so much about courage and how it's not about the absence of fear but the strength to overcome it." This day is yet another example of how we strive to personalize the Holocaust for students at TABC.
