Our name is sourced from Tomchei Temimim, the first formal Yeshiva system of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. Founded in 1897 by Rabbi Sholom DovBer Schneerson in the town of Lubavitch, Russia. Each student was lovingly called “Tamim,” meaning pure, perfect, or complete.
This endearing tidbit packs a vital message: quality Jewish education begins with the assumption that each child is inherently holy and good.
This concept of “wholeness” is the foundation of our model of Jewish education.
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson
