Actualizing the Vision

In the months leading up to September, a building was bought and beautifully renovated; a team of teachers was selected for their experience and expertise; and a group of girls prepared to embark on their educational journey.

When one enters Nachlas Bais Yaakov, the sense of excitement and purpose is immediately felt. The bright classrooms, decorated walls and designated lunchroom convey the feeling that something important is happening, and indeed it is. Here, chinuch is not just about the curriculum. It is the smiles on the girls’ faces as they say their brachos, the curiosity that’s cultivated when they offer their own answers, the pride that forms as they sound out first words. It’s ownership of learning, joy of discovery, and pride in being a bas yisrael.

My Motto

My motto is “עבדו את ה’ בשמחה .” A calm and happy child is open to the learning process. In this environment, our talmidos are comfortable asking questions and are always looking to explore and discover. We hope they will carry this attitude through their years of school, and in life.

On Middos Development

I believe that the best way to teach is by example. To this end, we’ve hand-picked our teachers for what they have to offer as role models. The next step is choosing age-appropriate skills and bringing them down to the students’ level, which we do through interactive puppet shows and role-play. We aim to relate to each girl’s innate self-worth, and instill the understanding that they are daughters of the King, Hashem. Growth in middos is so much more than “that’s not the way we speak,” when we focus on the positive act of building personalities.

Our Long Term Vision

My vision for our girls is their development into happy, well-adjusted young women who are prepared for high school and life. Every aspect of the curriculum is designed to lead to the mastery of academic skills like chumash, kriah, reading comprehension, analytical skills, and written expression. Even more, we want the girls to develop the desire and the confidence to succeed, in the classroom and out.

A Message From Mrs. Miller, English Principal

  • At Nachlas Bais Yaakov, we strive to infuse everyone of our students with healthy self-esteem, intrinsic motivation to succeed, and the ability to achieve their dreams. We encourage our students to be independent learners with a strong growth mindset and a solid self-image; we want them to truly believe in their own uniqueness and value, and to believe that with the right attitude and Hashem’s help, they can and will conquer anything that they encounter in life.
  • Our mission is to mold students who are kind, compassionate, and loving, with exceptional middos and loyal friendships. Every extraordinary teacher and staff member serves as a role model to our impressionable charges, and their engaging, relevant, hands-on lessons are designed to reach every student, helping her grow intellectually and emotionally.
  • Every aspect of Nachlas Bais Yaakov is purposefully planned to maximize the impact of our students’ formative years. We aspire to impart meaningful lessons and create profound bonds that will stay with our students for life.

From the Desk of Rabbi Yanky Robinson, Founder

When Rabbi Yanky Robinson saw an opportunity to make a mark on the chinuch of Lakewood’s girls, he saw the need, created by a burgeoning student population not just as a call, but as a calling.

  • The staff understands the needs and challenges unique to each child, and works to bring out each one’s strengths and capabilities. When the students recognize their own abilities, begin to think for themselves and develop at their own pace, we know that with Hashem’s help our efforts are bearing fruit.

  • We set out to create an outstanding mosad of chinuch with the strong Torah values that are the hallmark of our community’s institutions. It is my belief that in the warm and loving environment that Mrs. Smith and the teachers have created, every girl can thrive.

  • We are proud of the experience that our teachers bring with them; the growing pains that are always expected in a new school have been mitigated by their tireless devotion to the school and our girls. In Nachlas Bais Yaakov, we’re focused on what’s really important: What we can do for each child.
