A group of Valley Torah boys joined our alumnus, attorney Lou Shapiro (’98), as he made his rounds at the Airport Courthouse. Lou visits the school often to mentor and speak to our students about life as a frum attorney.
Here is one story of our alumni making an enormous impact on the Jewish Community.
Three of our alumni, Rabbi Yirmiyahu Rubenstein (’09), Rabbi Yossef Stulberger (’09) and Rabbi Ariel Wohlfarth (’07) are opening a Yeshiva Day School and Kollel in Tampa, Florida. Tampa has a large unaffiliated Jewish community with no Torah infrastructure at all. These three young men and their families are spearheading the start of the orthodox community in Tampa.
They have already met with considerable success. Over thirty children are signed up to start the first year of the Tampa Torah Center this September, and five other families are moving together with our alumni as the first group of Kollel members.
Valley Torah is so proud that our alumni are taking such an active roll in bringing Torah to a new community. The Tampa Torah Center is running a Charidy Matching Campaign today to raise the funds to launch the school and kollel. Please show them how proud you are by supporting them at Charidy.com/TTC.
All Boys Division Alumni (and friends) are invited to Mishmar this week. Maariv will begin at 9:00. Rabbi Stulberger with give a vaad following Maariv (9:15). At 9:45, join us for a kumzits with Rabbi Moshe Samuels. Sushi and (Pareve) Chulent will be served.
