Mrs. Lauren Wolder—General Studies


I live in Orange County, with my husband Rael and two children, Bianca and Max. Although I now call Southern California home, I was born in South Africa where I studied and obtained my Degree in Education, and taught at a public school. I then moved to Sydney, Australia, where I taught at the Yeshiva College for 8 years. My family slowly began to immigrate to the United States, so I eventually said goodbye to the land down under and moved to Los Angeles. I spent a further 7 years at Hillel Hebrew academy in Beverly Hills, teaching both 3rd and 4th grades. In total I have enjoyed 17 wonderful years of classroom education and look forward to many more.

I look forward to sharing the Torah’s timeless message with the children as we embark on our 2nd grade journey of learning and growing.


Morah Miriam Rapoport—Judaic Studies


Responsibility is a strong focus in the second grade classroom. Children are taught and encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility for their classroom and their work. I am very excited to be in second grade learning and growing with your child. My primary objective as a teacher is to create a happy environment where the students are confident and comfortable to learn and grow as they develop a strong Jewish pride. Jewish values
