Dear Parents,

On behalf of Or Hachaim Academy, we welcome you to our website and to our school. Selecting the best Jewish day school for your child is an important decision. We are grateful that you are considering our school. Starting from nursery school through 8th grade your child will have a place among friends here at Or Hachaim.

When your child attends Or Hachaim, he or she is not merely attending a Jewish school. From nursey school to eighth grade, in both Jewish and secular subjects, we offer your children a wonderful educational experience. We are committed to nurturing students academically and spiritually. Through our strong commitment to cultivating the future generations, we link middot and learning together. Our students are challenged to think critically and connect Torah views to everyday living.

Since 2001, Or Hachaim has brought back the glory and pride of the Sephardic heritage in the San Fernando Valley Jewish community and beyond. Or Hachaim reflects a central and continuous role in the lives of our graduates. Our graduates take on leadership roles in the school they go on to and they have come back to work in the school or help in any way they can.

On behalf of the administration and school we would love nothing more than to make your family a part of ours.

Kol Tuv,

Rabbi Gabay

Dean and Rosh Yeshiva
