List of 5 items.

  • Grandparents & Special Friends Day

    We were thrilled to welcome over 200 Grandparents and Special Friends. They had lunch, visited student's classrooms and ended with Kabbalat Shabbat. 

    Grandparents and Special Friends came away with sharing in the joy of learning and strengthening the bond of the TVT family.

    We look forward to seeing them at next years event and meeting new family members as well!

  • Alumni Reunion

    The day before Thanksgiving, Alumni are invited to Lion Madness. This past year, they competed in the annual alumni/student basketball game and reminisced about their school days over breakfast.

    This year was extra special! They got to embrace their inner child by going down the new slide. Some of them wished they could be a student again.

    Next year we welcome even more alumni to see how their school has grown and catch up with former classmates.

  • TVT Cares

    TVT Cares puts Tikkun Olam, Repair the World, into action. These events are aimed at benefiting others locally, nationally and globally.

    Our community Turkey Trot features a 5K and a 1K fun run on Thanksgiving morning. Proceeds benefit TVT Cares Fight Against Hunger which packs meals for those in need. This year we had over 400 participants of all ages, Some of them even came dressed in matching shirts. They exercised for their upcoming Thanksgiving meal and were having fun. More importantly, they were celebrating the values of TVT, Klal Yisrael  (Repair the world) and Tikkum Olam (community).

    Come help TVT package 60,000 meals for those in need in Haiti!

    Join us in partnering with Friends and Family Community Connection to package 60,000 meals to help in the fight against hunger. The majority of the meals will be shipped to Haiti where earthquakes and hurricanes have left many families without a stable food supply. This year a portion of the meals will again remain right here at home to supplement TVT’s Emergency Supplies. Your support will benefit the TVT community in addition to families struggling overseas.
