About Us

Head of School Message

Inspiration.  Leadership.  Mensches.


At our school, students and families become part of a community that feels like home. Valley Beth Shalom Harold M. Schulweis Day School offers exceptional general studies and Jewish studies rooted in tradition. Our students are well-prepared for academic achievement and grow into kind, empathetic leaders. Whether 3-D printing in our Boudai Family Innovation Lab, speaking Hebrew with a friend or shooting hoops, opportunities for connection, inquiry and growth abound! I am thrilled you are taking the time to explore our website and believe the best way to explore our school is to see it for yourself. I invite you to visit us and you will quickly discover how our faculty and staff build a community of learners. Click here to schedule a tour. 

We are extraordinarily proud that our school is named after Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, z”l, one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century. He believed with conviction that children can change the world. Here at VBS, each school day is an opportunity to realize this vision; we need only to look at our alumni to see this fulfilled.  We hope to welcome you in person very soon.

L’hitraot-Until we meet again,

Rabbi Deborah Schuldenfrei
