Shalhevet ‘Finally Frum’

"Frum" is Jew-speak for religious.

Shalhevet’s new head of school, Rabbi Elchanan Weinbach, is getting good reviews around the Orthodox community for bringing in religious discipline.

Shalhevet’s sophomore class is down to just eleven students. Shalhevet needs at least 40 students per grade to pay its bills.

Such public schools as Hamilton High School and Beverly Hills High School are benefitting from the exodus from Shalhevet and YULA. Hamilton is in particularly desperate need for white students. Most American Jews count as "white."
