In 1947, TVT founder, Irving “Papa” Gelman, immigrated to America on a donation of $5.60. In 1991, Papa Gelman founded TVT despite the odds of being told he could not raise enough funds. Opening with just 36 children, TVT has grown to nearly 600 students and over 580 Alumni. A donation of only $5.60 has multiplied to impact so many. Imagine what your gift to Lion’s Pride can do!
When you join the TVT community, you become a member of a close family of parents, students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends. Lifetime friendships are formed with a shared vision to ensure the continuity of TVT’s mission to provide an outstanding education rooted in Jewish values and identity.
As we celebrate over 25 years of excellence in education, TVT has remained faithful to Papa Gelman’s vision and is grateful for the long history of philanthropy and the generous spirit that exists within our community.
Through your financial support, TVT can fulfill its mission, expand its vision and provide exceptional opportunities and resources for our students that will continue L’dor V’dor – from generation to generation.
