Lemaan Achai “Beit Raphael,” established in memory of Rabbi Raphael Tawill by his grandson, Ralph Sitt, offers a comprehensive educational program for students from low-income or otherwise struggling families. The school combines Torah studies with sciences and provides learning opportunities to the students, as well as hot meals and transportation to and from their homes. The spacious, modern campus contains fully equipped classrooms and sprawling schoolyards. The school staff maintains a warm, personal relationship with the students far beyond the actual school hours, and continues to assist them after their graduation, watching with pride as each develops into a beautiful, contributing member of society.For more information and to register
The school operates as a Talmud Torah which combines high-level Torah studies alongside core curriculum: math, English and computers. The students also enjoy various enrichment workshops and modern equipment to assist their studies.
The school operates in a spacious, state-of-the-art campus with large, fully equipped classrooms, modern halls and expansive play areas. This feeling of space provides the children with a healthy environment in which to play, grow and learn.
The school employs exciting activities and contests to sharpen the children's minds and direct them to further learning in an exciting and stimulating manner. Competitions, campaigns, and fascinating educational outings broaden the students' worlds and bring their education to a completely new level.
The school administration puts much effort into ensuring proper transportation for the students from all sides of the city. This is important so that they can reach the school easily and safely, reducing the transportation costs the parents would otherwise have to add to their already-overwhelming financial burden. A hot, nourishing lunch is provided to each student, ensuring their physical well-being while easing the load of their parents.
We are far more than just an educational institution. We take a very personal responsibility, and our staff supports every child throughout his growing up years, with an awareness of his unique background and providing him with the tools to overcome his individual challenges.Rabbi Daniel Gilady, Director of Lemaan Achai School
The staff members all view it as their responsibility to create a warm, personal and close relationship with the students and the parents. The teachers serve as surrogate parents and mentors, maintaining continual contact with the student and his family.
The educational staff has been hand-picked for their pedagogic training, interpersonal skills, understanding of the student's emotional world and a strong desire for a personal relationship that is far beyond the educational framework. These skills facilitate a close, growth-oriented relationship and support of the student throughout his growing up years. The institution is directed by Rabbi Daniel Gilady, a superb administrator and educator with over twenty five years of experience educating Jewish children.
Unlike other institutions, our job does not begin or end in school. We view our work as a mission.Yehuda Levy, 6th grade teacher
I arrive home from work very late every night, but I am comforted to know Moshe gets a nourishing meal in school, and gets home safely with the school provided transportation. I feel rest assured when I know that my child is happy and in good hands both spiritually and physically.Riki Braha, Moshe's mother
There are friends, and there are fun activities, and the teacher is really nice. I love school.Zohar Gilboa, 1st grade.
