Strategic Planning Process

“Since we have no family in Edmonton, finding TT was a blessing for us. We developed a great support system and do not feel alone anymore. It is very important for us that the girls know about the history of their people, and learn our language and traditions, so they are not disconnected from our family back home but also that they know their place in the world as family members, community members and members of the Jewish people.”

-Noga Vaisblat, TT Parent

A Message From the Board

In the small Jewish community of Edmonton, Talmud Torah holds a special place in our hearts. For those who have come and gone, it holds fond memories of Jewish learning and lifelong friends. For us now, it is a place of community and connection, and a hope that our children are supported, nurtured, and inspired both to learn and find their place in the world. We envision a lively place of learning, where our youngest citizens are surrounded by friends, caring educators and teachers, while learning about and celebrating their heritage.

We have spent the last year learning about Talmud Torah’s past, and planning for its future. Under the direction of dedicated board members, informed by feedback of over 200 members of the community, including parents, grandparents, alumni, teachers, and others, the Talmud Torah Society is pleased to share the 2021-2026 Strategic Plan: Framing Our Future. We have learned just how important our Day School and Early Learning Centre are to our community, and are humbled by this opportunity to continue to enrich Jewish life in Edmonton.

Framing Our Future: Five Year Plan

We are excited to share our five-year strategic plan, “Framing Our Future” with our community. This plan is guided by the priorities and vision of our stakeholders: to educate, inspire and guarantee Edmonton’s Jewish future.

By ensuring and promoting high pedagogical and academic standards in Judaic and Hebrew Studies, we want to meet the needs of individual students and create and implement a comprehensive communication plan that integrates TTS, School Council and ELC communications. We want to also ensure financial viability, establish a fundraising programme and ensure the Board follows governance best practices.

Special Thanks

In line with TT’s rich history of support from community-minded individuals, the development of this strategic plan was the culmination of many hours of volunteer work from a diverse group of committed community members and TT parents. We would like to recognize the volunteers who invested their time to create this plan, many of whom are now working to bring these goals to life.
