South-Florida-logo

The Board of Trustees of Weinbaum Yeshiva high School has proudly announced that Rabbi Jonathan Kroll will serve as its new Head of School effective August 1, 2013. Rabbi Kroll joins Weinbaum Yeshiva High School from S.A.R High School in Riverdale, New York, where he has held teacher and associate principal titles since 2003.

“Rabbi Kroll meets and exceeds the stringent criteria set forth by the school’s board,” said Jeffrey Harris, president of Weinbaum’s Board of Trustees. “Rabbi Kroll embodies the rare combination of scholar, leader, nurturer and mentor. We have no doubt his selection will be welcomed by all who have the opportunity to work with him. We believe the combination of Rabbi Kroll working with Mrs. Kanner, Weinbaum’s principal; Shimmie Kaminetsky, Weinbaum’s executive director; and our leadership team will provide our school with an extremely talented management team for years to come. We feel fortunate and are very excited to have Rabbi Kroll joining Weinbaum Yeshiva High School.”

“I am very excited to join the team of educators, students and families that make up the Weinbaum Yeshiva High School Community,” said Rabbi Kroll. “I look forward to leading this excellent school to even greater heights.”

Rabbi Kroll received his BS in Accounting at Yeshiva University, his MS in Secondary Education from Azrieli Graduate Institute of Yeshiva University, and his rabbinic ordination at YU’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.

Rabbi Kroll, his wife Jennifer, and their children Leora, Avi, Akiva and Eli will relocate to the Boca Raton area during the summer, although Rabbi Kroll will be actively involved in school planning and leadership decisions starting immediately.

Weinbaum Yeshiva High School, the largest Jewish high school in Florida, is singularly focused on inspiring and challenging its more than 250 students in all facets of their education. Weinbaum strives to inspire students to make a lifelong commitment to Jewish values and observance and to challenge them with an excellent college and yeshiva preparatory program, enabling them to gain admission and to succeed at the finest institutions of higher learning in the U.S. and abroad.

Weinbaum celebrates the ideals of Ahavat Yisrael (love of the Jewish people), Tikkun Olam (communal responsibility) and Medinat Yisrael (the state of Israel).
