Toddlers are given ample opportunity to experiment and to construct new knowledge in a sensory rich environment and at a developmentally appropriate pace with supportive, loving Morahs. We honor their inquisitive nature and understand that they are forming new knowledge about the world around them with every interaction.
In the Preschool Program, we encourage problem solving and self-expression in a healthy constructive manner. Each child’s progress and development is monitored and, B’ezras Hashem, the four year olds will be academically prepared, as well as socially and emotionally, to enter their Kindergarten year.
We are open year round with a back to back School Program Session and Summer Session. Hours are 8:30am to 3pm M-Thurs and 8:30am-1pm on Erev Shabbos.
Derech HaTorah of Rochester
Derech HaTorah of Rochester (DHR) is committed to providing a Torah education for all Jewish children. A seamless fusion of curricula has been developed to educate the whole child. DHR teaches a superior, scholastic curriculum that meets and exceeds New York State Education Department standards.
The intellectual and moral development of every student is maximized in a warm, nurturing learning environment. Each student is viewed as an individual, having multiple capacities, interests and intelligences. Thus, our educational philosophy reflects the wisdom of Shlomo HaMelech in Mishlei “חנוך לנער על פי דרכו” (educate each child according to his nature).
DHR teaches and models true Torah Hashkafos, where no child is ever left behind. With outstanding Rabbaim and Morahs, every child not only learns how to learn; but learns how to love learning.

Yeshivas Zichron Moshe at Talmudical Institute of Upstate NY
The High School, which was named Zichron Moshe in memory of Maurice M. Rothman, has grown in stature and spirit and is successfully producing young men committed to the highest ideals of תורה life. In addition, the General Studies Program, fully accredited by the Board of Regents, has successfully created an atmosphere of academic achievements and scholarship. Our students have consistently scored extremely well on standardized tests.
The purpose of the Yeshiva goes beyond producing academic excellence. The Yeshiva strives to produce a בן תורה – one who not only studies תורה, but also lives תורה – one whose total personality is shaped by the profound insights and perspectives of the תורה. A close, meaningful teacher-student relationship provides the basis for personal guidance, enhancing the student’s understanding of himself, his goals and his purpose in life.
