The soft murmured prayers as a mother kindles the Shabbos candles each Friday night. Singing together around the glowing flames of the menorah throughout the eight joyous nights of Chanukah. Walking down to the chuppah with two flames, surrounded by the warmth of parental love and hope. The shalhevet, the flame, has always been central Jewish Life.
An unlit candle in a space filled with untapped potential. A spark, a flame – catching, leaping, glowing… Spark to wick and a new flame has been born; a flame that can warm cold places, inspire deep thoughts, heal bruised hearts, reveal depths and provide clarity. The newest shalhevet has joined the chain of so many inspired before her. At Shalhevet we experience so many such moments: the warm feelings of friendship, the clarity of good questions and answers, the inspiration to develop one’s unique potential. Our exceptionally high faculty-to-student ratio enables us to provide student-centered education, giving each girl the ability to excel and shine in her own way. Our students are involved in programs that give back to the greater Vancouver community. We educate our girls to carry this legacy of their own unique shalhevet to ignite and inspire their families and communities. W. B. Yeats summarized our philosophy best, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
At Shalhevet we prove that an excellent education in Judaic Studies can be combined with equal excellence in Secular Studies. Our graduates are admitted to top seminaries in Israel and outstanding universities across North America. Our Legacy Campaign is a yearly commitment on your part that will enable us to continue to pursue this mission.
