Touro College Los Angeles (TCLA), the West Coast’s only WASC-accredited Orthodox Jewish college, recently celebrated its sixth annual commencement ceremony.

Seventeen graduates received degrees before over 150 guests. The keynote speaker, Dr. Mark Hasten, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Touro College and University system, spoke about the value of education and the Touro College system’s history. TCLA’s dean, Dr. Esther Lowy, also spoke at the commencement.

Among the graduating class of 2012, outstanding students were recognized for scholastic achievement and service to the community. Valedictorian Miriam Brummer encouraged her fellow graduates to utilize their degrees to achieve their future goals and, most important, to hold onto Touro College’s value system. “Stay true to the values and ethics we have gained the past few years, and stay true to yourself,” Brummer said. Rochel Pollak was the salutatorian, while Avram Saada and Leah Mizrahi were recognized for their devotion to the Jewish community at large and the Touro community in particular. TCLA graduates seeking advanced degrees are proceeding to such prestigious universities as Columbia, USC and Pepperdine. Others will be working in their fields of interest.

TCLA is part of the Touro worldwide non-profit institutions of higher and professional education. The college is currently developing concentrations in health sciences and early education. For more information about TCLA, please call 323-822-9700 x 85155 or e-mail tourola.admissions@touro.edu.
