Kesser Torah College (lit., "Crown of Torah") is an Australian independent, Orthodox Jewish co-educational, day school that is located in Dover Heights, an eastern suburb of Sydney, New South Wales. The college provides education from preschool to kindergarten, to Year 12

Education activities[edit]

Kesser Torah College incorporated in December 2003 as a Jewish orthodox school with a Chabad ethos. It has grown to accommodate over 400 students catering to over 250 families.[citation needed] With a staff complement of 90 professionals, the school is committed to enhancing academic and extra-curricular learning for each child as an individual, and to providing the highest quality Jewish and secular education, as well as pastoral care. The teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe continue to inspire the educational philosophy of Kesser Torah College.

The college is co-educational to Year 1. Boys and girls are taught separately from Years 2-6 in the primary school and in the high school.

Because the Jewish Studies and General Studies programs across the entire school are integrated, students can learn first hand how an excellent general education can enhance life as a Torah Jew and how spirituality can give meaning to their existence, undertakings and activities throughout life.

Staff[edit]

Former principals include Rabbi Noteh Glogauer, principal for eight years. Rabbi Samuel Gurewicz held title of acting principal.[1]

The current principal is Roy Steinman. [2]
