    The distinguishing feature of this Talmud Torah is that is accepts boys from all backgrounds. While the education leans more toward the Haredi Hashkafa, all boys are welcomed and are part of the school. Their mantra is “Halacha K’chamura B’kef” and “Talmud Torah Mitoch Ahava.” This is a school that believes in Darcheha Darchei Noam, and teaches its students to live by that.
