The Growth of our Thriving Community Around Education


Rudlin Torah Academy ended the 2021-2022 school year on a high note and is eager to keep up the momentum.

RTA has launched summer plans to spruce up its current facility, including creating dedicated space for advanced and supplemental resource assistance, as Rabbi Elisha Paul, RTA’s incoming Head of School, plans for a strong academic and administrative team to teach, guide and nurture our Jewish community’s children.

As the school’s outgoing and incoming administrations continue to work in collaboration through a smooth transition, our community rallied around RTA and our kids’ future and closed its most successful annual campaign ever, raising $105,000 in its 2022 ALL IN campaign.

This momentum comes within the backdrop of RTA’s increased institutional strength, including stronger board governance measures, a relationship with Rav Aaron Lopiansky to provide the board guidance on Torah-related matters, a successful search for a new Head of School, and a $500,000 gift from the Lessin charities toward finding RTA a new building.

“This is just the beginning,” said Daniel Roth, president of Rudlin Torah Academy. “Amidst the uncertainty that comes from transition, there is a groundswell of optimism. People are beginning to see the sky’s the limit.”

“I am proud to help bring dreams to reality for our children and our Jewish future,” said Chuck Lessin, the founder of the Lessin charities. “I know that others will step up in big ways as well.”
