Rabbi Schwartz Bio

“The way to children’s minds is through their hearts, and the way to parents is through their children.”

Rabbi Shlomo Schwartz is known as a proactive and effective leader and מחנך who recognizes the importance of building trusting relationships with all stakeholders – fellow administrators, faculty, parents, and most importantly, the children. He is a perpetual learner, constantly deepening his knowledge in all areas of חינוך and staying current on emerging educational trends. New ideas or initiatives are carefully evaluated and implemented, as appropriate, via a collaborative effort.

Immediately prior to joining YBH, Rabbi Schwartz spent four years as the Head of School at Eitz Chaim Schools in Toronto, where he oversaw an institution of over 800 תלמידים and תלמידות. Previously, he served for 8 years as the Elementary Principal of the Jewish Educational Center, and held administrative roles in other area institutions.  He is entering his 21st year in hanhalah.

Rabbi Schwartz attended Yeshivas Kerem B’Yavneh in Eretz Yisroel and received his smicha from RIETS. He holds a B.A. degree from Yeshiva College and an M.S. degree from the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration.  After spending the last 4 years in Toronto, Rabbi Schwartz and his family are thrilled to return to the Passaic-Clifton community, where they previously lived for over 20 years, during which time he served as a true עוסק בצרכי ציבור באמונה.

Rabbi Schwartz is a consummate professional who will inspire those around him to even greater achievement.  We are proud to have Rabbi Schwartz as the Menahel of our yeshiva, and are excited to join him in his mission to continuously elevate YBH to new horizons of growth and excellence for our children and our community.
