Head of School Welcome

Welcome to Bialik Hebrew Day School!

Since the founding of our school 60 years ago, Bialik Hebrew Day School has come a long way. From our opening enrolment of 43 students in 1961, we are currently a vibrant and thriving school of over 1,300 students at two branches in Vaughan and midtown Toronto.

It is an honour and privilege to be the Head of School at Bialik. It is always a pleasure to see our staff and students coming into school with a smile, eagerly anticipating the excitement of teaching and learning. Each day at Bialik our students experience magic moments of discovery and opportunities for creativity in our rigorous Jewish and General Studies programs. They are happy and proud to be Bialik students, and value the learning, leadership and social opportunities they have at school. We continue to develop graduates who have a strong Jewish identity and who are knowledgeable and proud of their Jewish heritage and traditions.

Our school motto is a quote from Chaim Nachman Bialik, for whom our school is named.

Po beit hayotzer l’nishmat ha’umah” – “Here the soul of the people is forged”

Our motto continues to inspire us to provide our unique brand of Jewish day school education. We are very proud of our many graduates who are leaders in the Jewish and broader communities, and who are also active and involved parents in our school.

Zionism, Jewish values and Menschlechkeit are important to my own family as well, and Bialik has been a special part of my life for over 10 years. My wife and I are very proud of our children who are Bialik graduates, and considered the school a second home.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bialik. Please contact us so that we can set up an appointment for you to come in and see our exciting programs in action.
