An Oasis in Irvine

A unique school mirrors Orange County's Jewish diversity


Tarbut V'Torah Community Day School, founded in 1991 by retired businessman Irving Gelman, exemplifies, perhaps more than any other Jewish institution in Orange County, the blossoming of the Jewish community behind what Angelenos probably need to quit calling "the Orange Curtain." No longer a Jewish backwater, Orange County is home to Jews representing a range of national origin and religious observance almost as diverse as that of its neighbor to the north, and that diversity is well represented at Tarbut V'Torah.
