About Us » Welcome


שלום וברוכים הבאים לאתר של בית-הספר בן פרת יוסף!
RSZIt is a pleasure and privilege for me to welcome you to Ben Porat Yosef, a singular community of students, teachers, and parents all working together as one, in a warm, nurturing environment, pursuing academic rigor and excellence in Limudei Kodesh (Judaic Studies) and Limudei Chokhmah (General Studies). We believe passionately that these two characteristics – an embracing warmth and a devotion to excellence – can, and must, exist in combination with each other in order to develop joyful, confident, empowered, and skillful learners ready to excel in 21st century learning and living.

Our vision includes a strong emphasis on skills-based learning applied to a critical mass of knowledge, where students are given the tools to be able to understand, search for new knowledge, and apply creative and critical thinking to solve problems and meet challenges in an ever-expanding world of rapid change and technological advancement. Our students have earned a reputation for their fluency and sophistication in Ivrit as a result of our special Hebrew immersion program. Together, we experience and live Torat Yisrael, Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael, and Medinat Yisrael day in and day out with our unique Shlichim Program. BPY’s beautiful Chodesh B’Chodesh program – celebrating the awesome achdut Yisrael of the Sephardic and Ashkenazic heritages and cultures in tandem with each other – guides our students toward love for the entirety of the Jewish people.
As you explore the pages of this website or walk through the halls of Ben Porat Yosef, at every turn you will discover the ideals and values of our wonderful family, our progressive education, and our amazing achievements all translated into reality in a myriad of wonderful ways. I welcome you on this exciting journey.
בכבוד רב ובאיחולים לבביים,
Rabbi Saul Zucker
Head of School
