Barkai Yeshivah’s mission is to cultivate the unique potential of each ben and bat Torah, based on the belief that all elements of our world should be recognized through the framework of Torah. Our goal is to provide a warm, child-centered environment in which students can develop into lifelong learners and pursuers of knowledge who will become the leaders of the next generation. Our general studies program will develop high- level skills and a depth of knowledge that will enable our students to engage in the world as informed, proficient, and discerning citizens. Barkai’s Hebrew immersion program will provide our students with the ability to master the Hebrew language as well as instill in them a deep love for the people, land, and State of Israel. Our commitment to imparting our honored Sephardic heritage, traditions, and culture is essential to the preservation and continuity of our community for generations to come. Our students will emerge with a strong sense of personal identity, refined character, and as educated, well-rounded bene Torah. They will be well- versed in Torah and committed to Misvot, in order to live a Jewish life in the contemporary world.

Barkai's 3rd Shabbat Family Retreat More than 100 families joined together to take part in a spiritual and restful respite from their normal Shabbat routines. The weekend's activities included meaningful sessions and Torah classes, an emotional habdallah, rikkudim, an abundance of games, organized sports and more. The time spent together highlighted the core Barkai values of Torah, community and Sephardic heritage thereby adding kindling to the Barkai flame and allowing everyone to appreciate its unique warmth.

Purim Carnival 2022 This year's Adar celebration culminated with an amazing, fun-filled Purim carnival. Everyone, staff and students alike, dressed in costumes for the occasion.

All Barkai students enjoyed rotating from one beautifully decorated classroom to the next to participate in each activity including fishing, dancing, shaving a balloon, making Mishloah Manot and a Kahoot! trivia game. Our Early Childhood students bowled, fished, got face paint and more concluding with a sing-along in the atrium.

Purim Sameah! Barkai hosted its first Purim in school! Families came together to enjoy the morning's activities which included tefillah, a debar Torah from Rav Yeshivah Rabbi Albert Setton, a Megillat Esther reading by our 8th grade boys, breakfast and Mishloah Manot exchanges. Purim Sameah!
