Bruchim Haba’im

I’m so glad you’re exploring Alice and Nahum Lainer School. From our Parenting Center to our Middle School, Alice and Nahum Lainer School strives to reach, stretch, and ignite our students’ minds, spirits, and bodies. We nurture passionate learners who will lead the way in the Jewish community and in the world.

I am grateful to be part of a community in which teachers, parents, and children of all ages hold one another accountable for growing into the best versions of ourselves. We are a place both visionary and grounded in tradition. We are a place that holds dear our unique spot in the Los Angeles community and the world.

Wonder permeates this place—from our youngest learners through our middle schoolers—and provides a joyful foundation for our students to become intellectually engaged. Students learn with their minds on fire: They are problem-solvers and analyzers of evidence, inventors of theories, and creative thinkers from the moment they walk in the door. Justice is woven into the very fabric of our Jewish existence, and Alice and Nahum Lainer School students understand that it is their responsibility to make the world a better place.

We exist to raise joyful, engaged learners who are committed to their own growth and the betterment of the world. I look forward to meeting you and exploring a partnership in the awesome responsibility of your child’s education.

Whether you explore the website or take a tour, we hope you enjoy getting a glimpse of the sacred learning that happens inside the School each and every day.
