Ruhama Shitrit

Ruhama and her husband, Yossi, have three children: Shoham '14, Dor (Grade 5) and Zoe (Kindergarten). Ruhama also teaches Hebrew at Schechter's early childhood program, Gan Shelanu. We asked Ruhama to share a little bit about her family's experiences at Schechter.

What do you love most about Schechter?

I love the welcoming feeling in each campus and the nice people that greet the children every morning.

Why did you choose Schechter for your children?

I chose Schechter because the strong connection to Israel, Jewish values and above all the great academic environment in the school!

In what ways have you seen your children grow and develop as a result of their experiences at Schechter?

My children feel supported by their teachers and therefore are motivated to learn and feel engaged by the curriculum. 

What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at Schechter?

Schechter is a gift for life for your children. The school has "all in one": great academic and enrichment program, Hebrew everywhere and a great community!
