School Leader's Message


“אין אדם לומד תורה אלא ממקום שלבו חפץ”

“A person can learn Torah only from where their heart desires”


This idea, from the Talmud Bavli (Avodah Zarah, 19a), embodies the educational philosophy of Katz Yeshiva High School. Learning of all kinds, whether in Judaic or General Studies, happens when learners are eager to explore and grow.


The outstanding team of administrators, faculty, and staff at KYHS work daily to foster this spirit. They work tirelessly - in classrooms, hallways, extracurricular activities and informal conversations - to create a space that models curiosity, rigor, and great expectations, and which embodies passion and discipline in building a life rooted deeply in Jewish, civic and human values.


The passion and discipline of our top-tier academic and rabbinic faculty inspires the same in our students, who excel in their studies, spend time in Israel upon graduation and study in the colleges of their choice.


It is my honor to lead this outstanding team, and a privilege to work with them to create spaces where each and every one of our students can learn from where their heart desires.
