Toras Chaim/Toras Emes Adds Executive Of Development

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Yeshiva Toras Chaim/Toras Emes has appointed Rabbi Avrohom Anton to the position of executive of development. In this newly created position, Rabbi Anton’s primary focus will on broadening the yeshiva’s relationship with the community, expanding its reach by facilitating new connections, and increasing the depth of its impact not on North Miami Beach but throughout South Florida as well.

Rabbi Anton joined the yeshiva’s Klurman Elementary School in 2000 as assistant principal and 6th-grade rebbe. In 2007 he moved to the yeshiva’s Rohr Middle School where he assumed the role of assistant principal while continuing as 6th-grade rebbe.

Rabbi Anton received smicha in 1997 from Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim (Rabbinical Seminary of America) in Queens, New York and holds a Masters in Education from Adelphi University.

His loyalty and dedication to the yeshiva are apparent to everyone with whom he comes into contact and he’s beloved by his talmidim.

In his role as assistant principal, Rabbi Anton’s interactions with the talmidim were infused with genuine love and respect at all times. While his classroom duties will continue, he now joins the hanhala in this new and exciting leadership role, working together with them to maximize the yeshiva’s potential for growth and hatzlacha at every level.

Located in the vibrant Jewish community of North Miami Beach, Yeshiva Toras Chaim/Toras Emes recently celebrated its 27th year of excellence in chinuch. It currently educates close to 650 students from nursery through beis medrash (college-level Talmudic studies) in its four divisions – the Toras Emes Klurman Elementary School (nursery through grade 5), the Rohr Middle School (boys grades 6-8), the Yeshiva Toras Chaim Dr. Abe Chames High School (boys grades 9-12) and Beis Medrash Zichron Ezra (boys post-secondary program). For further information regarding the yeshiva or any of its programs, visit www.ytcteam.org or call the administrative office at 305-944-5344, extension 200. Inquiries may also be directed to ytc@ytcteam.org.

Achim Academy Students Perform In Pesach Drama

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

The Achim Academy Center for Education in North Miami Beach uses many unique approaches to teach its special students, and for Pesach a dramatic production in six scenes planted the important messages of the Torah in young minds.

Achim Academy students hold model Seder.

The students learned the Torah lessons during the days leading up to Pesach, and then learned and rehearsed the six scenes of the production created by their teacher, Rabbi Avrohom Bukspan. Tall stuffed animals became ferocious beasts with students “roaring,” chemistry lessons turned water into red “blood,” and matzah was broken with well-learned karate moves.

AACE school students had a special show at the school for parents, siblings and friends. The model Seder instilled confidence and a sense of accomplishment in youngsters along with the lessons learned.

Achim Academy Center for Education is an ESE school for children with emotional and learning disabilities and for children who are gifted or may have dual exceptionalities. Established in 1999 and has four divisions: the day school, a gifted cohort, an out-of-school program and a summer camp.

Applications are now being accepted for the summer camp, which begins July 2, and for the day school and gifted cohort for the 2012-2013 school year, which begins August 4. There are a limited number of scholarships available for either on a first come-first serve basis. The deadline for Florida McKay Scholarship applications and registration is Monday, July 2.

Application forms and additional information are available on the school’s website, www.aaceschool.org, or by calling 305-945-7443.
