It was an unusual year – but there are a lot of wonderful and exciting shared memories.
Valley Torah Freshman Johnny Dan won the coveted John R. Wooden award. Johnny was chosen for this award out of over 6,000 other CIF-SS Division V players This is the second time that a VTHS student received this award.
The John R. Wooden Award is given to the top athlete in each basketball division for boys and girls basketball. It is one of the most prestigious awards given in high school and collegiate basketball.
The 2020 John R. Wooden High School Player of the Year Award winners are: Stanford commit and USA Basketball player, Ziaire Williams of Sierra Canyon High School (Chatsworth); Arizona State commit and USA Basketball player, Josh Christopher of Mayfair High School (Lakewood); UC Irvine commit and CIF Player of the Year, Andre Henry of St. Francis High School (La Canada Flintridge); Highly touted 2021 recruit, Koat Keat of Renaissance Academy (Altadena); … and freshman, Johnny Dan of Valley Torah!
It is the second time that a Valley Torah student received this prestigious award—Aaron Liberman received it in 2011. No other Yeshiva has had any John R. Wooden Award winners.
Alongside winning the John R Wooden award, Johnny Dan completed a triple crown of sorts by being selected unanimous First Team All CIF selection alongside teammate David Paz and a unanimous First Team All League selection for the Heritage League, which sent 3 teams to the California State Boys Basketball tournament, alongside teammates Benji Dan and Alon Yehezkel.
Here is a message from Rabbi Stulberger for the second days of Pesach.
This year’s Pesach is turning out to be like no other Pesach. Watch Rabbi Stulberger’s message to his students on the eve of this very special Pesach.
We are doing our best to keep our educational program running even though our building is closed. We had mishmar and a kumzits over Zoom.
Unfortunately, school is closed due to the Covid-19 situation. We will not be having minyanim until further notice. We hope that Hashem will help everyone stay well during this difficult time.
After two days of training, classes went live online today. The Girls Division has a complete schedule of classes. The Boys Division has shiurim from 9:30 – 11:00 and secular classes from 1:00 – 4:00. We even joined together with the rest of Klal Yisroel for Tehillim at 10:30.
In addition to a gala lox and bagels breakfast (hamantaschen too), the Boys Division Rosh Chodesh Breakfast was full of surprises: a mariachi band and a visit by President Trump.
Rabbi Stulberger gave a pilpul shiur (an in-depth Gemara class) to all the honors Gemara classes.
