I believe that King David shaped and affected my life in so many positive ways – my love for Judaism and for Israel and my passion to be involved in organizations that participate in Tikun Olam are as a direct result of my King David Education. My favourite teachers were Doc Thomas, Elliot Wolf (I loved Latin!), Mr Eddie Tannenbaum, Mrs Barclay and Mrs Amiel. I also have many lifelong friends from my time at King David. Jewish education has been and will always be the “key” to Jewish continuity.
King David provides the keys which we in turn will pass on to our children and future generations.
