Registration is currently underway for the Eitz Hadaas
network of kindergartens in Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, Kiryat

The Eitz Hadaas network was founded four years ago with the
blessings and under the direction of maranan
verabonon. The kindergartens have gained the acclaim of
parents, who are pleased with its educational level. The
network has fulfilled its aim of helping its young students
integrate into the elementary educational system by giving
them a basic Torah education based on the Torah way of life
as led in the yeshiva community.
During the girls' time in the network of schools, Torah
becomes ingrained into their personalities.
The boys' kindergartens, which have opened over the past
three years, have also met with much success in their
efforts. In these kindergartens, children acquire the
behavior patterns to enable them to be among the first to be

This year, scores of parents and community leaders have
requested that the Eitz Hadaas school network be expanded to
their community, all over the country.
Although the Eitz Hadaas administration is very proud of the
success of these kindergartens, but it also has many
complaints against the Jerusalem Municipality, mainly with
the inadequate buildings the school has received and the
Municipality's failure to assist in the administration's
financial burden. The school rents apartments due to a lack
of classrooms. So far the Jerusalem Municipality has not
offered any assistance for improvement of the physical
conditions of the school. The Eitz Hadaas administration
feels that this indicates favoritism and discrimination.
