About Shalom
about shalom

For more than 40 years, Shalom Torah Academy has been at the forefront of securing Klal Yisroel's future through outreach and education.

With the recognition that young children are the future of Klal Yisroel, Shalom provides a comprehensive dual-curriculum education beginning with children as young as age 2.

In communities all across across New Jersey, the United States and internationally, Shalom graduates and their parents maintain an ongoing, lifelong bond with Shalom, its faculty and affiliate network, crediting Shalom with providing the foundation for their professional and personal success.

In addition to high level academics in both its Limudei Kodesh and secular curriculums, Shalom imbues its students with a love and passion for Torah, conveying the joy and splendor of the Torah oriented lifestyle and its approach to character development, as well as the history and significance of Jewish holidays. Yamim Tovim and life events are celebrated with the entire school and the larger Jewish community. Shabbatons, additional learning opportunities, and recreational activities are all part of the Shalom experience.

The unique opportunities offered by Shalom attracts students from within a 50 mile radius. However, the competition with free, secular public schools results in small class sizes and a significant budgetary shortfall. The school relies heavily on the generosity and leadership of larger and more established Jewish communities to sustain its array of vital programs.
