With the ongoing growth and development of Oholei Torah, there will be transformations in some of the leadership positions for the upcoming year.
Our beloved dean, Rabbi Hershel Lustig, will be stepping down from his position as Dean, and previously Principal, at the end of this school year. This was indicated by the Executive Board, at the beginning of the school year.
Rabbi Lustig has been with Oholei Torah for over 30 years, and has seen tremendous growth in the Elementary Division and the thousands of talmidim that were educated under his term is a testament to his care and wisdom.
After an ongoing search for a replacement, with the help of the Menachem Education Foundation the Board of Directors has hired Rabbi Michoel Druin. Rabbi Druin will be the Principal of the 7th and 8th grade mechina division, to replace Rabbi Sholom Goldstein, who will be taking a position in the administrative offices. In addition Rabbi Druin will take the position of Interim Dean for the next two years.
Rabbi Druin comes with decades of experience successfully and professionally running large schools in South Africa, Florida and New York, with many divisions and a large, diverse staff body.
As a Shliach, Rabbi Druin is committed to the goals and aspirations of Oholei Torah through the many directives given to Oholei Torah from the Rebbe. Rabbi Druin will be meeting with the staff
A notification was sent out to the Staff and Parents directly from Rabbi Joseph Rosenfeld, informing them of these changes.
