What makes TRT different from other Jewish schools?
When I was in Hebrew School, you had two very clear choices: conform to the schedule, content and student population, or find a tutor who would privately help you achieve your goal, most often just the bar/bat mitzvah ceremony. I went three times a week to an orthodox, Sephardi school where I learned two things: I loved learning this stuff, and I couldn’t use what I learned in class when I sat high up in the women’s section on Shabbat morning.
That feeling of being on the outside looking in stayed with me until I got to college and realized that I could return to the Jewish classroom, alongside my male peers. I went straight to rabbinic school after graduating, and never looked back.
