Tehiyah Day School

2603 Tassajara Avenue


Our Mission: Awaken. Build. Connect. 

Tehiyah Day School is a Jewish community day school committed to:

Awakening intellectual curiosity and a strong sense of Jewish identity

Building a culture of thoughtfulness and ethical behavior 

Connecting learners to their community, the world and their authentic (best) selves.     

By infusing our core values into the TDS curriculum, our students and faculty are truly able to “live” our mission and model traditional Jewish values in their everyday practice.

Community Kehillah                          ×§×”ילה

Tehiyah promotes a strong sense of קהילה (kehillah)- community and  ×¨×•×— (ruach) - spirit. Together we build a school that is nurturing, inclusive, and diverse – where each individual is able to express their best and most authentic self. We prepare our students to make the world around them a more compassionate, just, and peaceful place (תיקון עולם)- Tikkun Olam).

People of the Book              Am ha-Sefer           עם הספר

At Tehiyah, we foster each child’s innate curiosity and creativity while cultivating critical thinking and compassion. As People of the Book, we place the written word, inquiry, and in-depth study at the center of Jewish values. 

Connection to Judaism        Am Israel          ×¢× ישראל

Tehiyah inspires our students to develop a personal connection to Jewish life, to understand and appreciate the wisdom, spiritual depth, and ethical guidance of Judaism. We foster a commitment to the State of Israel, its culture, language, history, and land.
