Elliot Saleh, 2011

Université de Laval, Médecine Dentaire

Durant mes années à Herzliah, les enseignants m’ont toujours inspiré et m’ont motivé à atteindre mes buts. Leur confiance en moi m’ont poussé à dépasser mes objectifs. Tout cela m’a bien préparé pour le défi à l’Université McGill dans le programme d’Ergothérapie, suivi par mon admission à la Médecine Dentaire.

Dana Ben David, 2010

McGill Architecture

It was at Herzliah that I formed close and enduring friendships with my classmates and I was free to explore and cultivate my passions – drama,voice, dance and art. I benefited from an excellent education – all in a warm and nurturing environment. Herzliah prepared me for CEGEP and beyond.

Julia Knafo, 2012

Université de Montréal, Faculté de droit

Ce qui m’a touchée le plus pendant mes années à Herzliah, c’est le fait que chacun de mes enseignants a consacré son temps à mieux me connaitre et à mieux connaitre mes objectifs académiques. Leur confiance en moi m’a motivée intrinsèquement et c’est grâce à cela, que j’ai atteint tous mes objectifs.

Laurent Elkrief, 2010

Université de Montréal, Faculté de médecine

I realized that work ethics I developed at Herzliah have allowed me to get to where I am today. However, the greatest gift that Herzliah gave me are the Jewish values that have inspired me to continue to give back to my community.

Nicole Raviv, 2010

New York University, Professional Studies

Aujourd’hui, alors que je poursuis une carrière musicale à New York, je suis extrêmement reconnaissante des bases que j’ai reçues à Herzliah ainsi que l’éducation juive qui me servira toute la vie.

Phil Kramer, 2012

McGill Medicine

I’ve been accepted into the Pre-med program at McGill and I honestly believe that it was the teachers at Herz who not only inspired me but challenged me and pushed me to pursue my dreams of becoming a doctor.

Matthew Jacobson, 2006

Investment Advisor

My years at Herzliah were some of the most important and best of my life. Looking back now, it’s incredible how privileged I was to receive an incredible education in an incredible environment. I still value many of the things I learnt over the years from my teachers today in my everyday life, and my closest friends are those from all the great years at Herzliah VSL. I’m a Huskie for life!

Orad Reshef, 2005

Harvard University, PhD Applied Physics

My time at Herzliah was very special to me – I really enjoyed my high school classes. The teachers and curriculum prepared me for the tough academic programs at CEGEP and University. I was able accepted into Harvard University and am proud to say that I recently received my PhD in Applied Physics. Most important, while at Herzliah, I met my wife on a school trip.

Mike Moyal, 2010


Grâce à son programme de mathématiques concurrentiel, Herzliah m’a aidé à développer ma passion pour les mathématiques. Tout au long de l’école secondaire, les enseignants m’ont encouragé à travailler et m’ont montré combien les mathématiques jouent un rôle important dans quotidien. Je pense vraiment que c’est grâce à mes merveilleux enseignants et à leur soutien que je travaille dans le domaine de l’actuariat.

Tal Cantor, 2008

McGill University, Masters in Public Health

Key to education at Herzliah was the importance of strong Jewish values. I was encouraged, not only to appreciate them, but also to integrate them into everyday life. I was the first Canadian to travel to Gondar Ethiopia as part of a Tikkum Olam project, initiated by the Jewish Agency. I spent my summer working at a local community clinic. I am currently completing a Master Degree in Public Health at McGill University. My goal is to help the vulnerable population gain access to medical care.

David Lasry, 2013

Université de McGill, Médecin

Je suis fier de dire que j’étudie maintenant à McGill et que je fais une année préparatoire en médecine. J’ai eu l’opportunité de faire un stage en Israël à l’institut Weizmann à Rehovot. J’ai pu faire de la recherche pour des maladies sérieuses comme l’arthrite et le cancer.

Stephan Ouaknine, 1991

Managing Partner, Inerjys Ventures

“My time at Herz was defining. Both academically and in terms of my Jewish identity. The academic standard prepared me well for Marianopolis and McGill. The Hebrew studies laid the foundation for a love of Israel and fluency in Hebrew which eventually led me to move to Israel, start my career in High Tech and live in Tel Aviv for 7 years. I always found it fortuitous that my offices were in Hertzliya Pituach. I am forever grateful to my teachers and mentors from Herzliah.
