Gratitude & Growth

Honoring Rabbi Dr. Darren Kleinberg for his seven years of dedicated service to our community

After more than seven years, the 2019-2020 school year will be Rabbi Kleinberg’s last as our Head of School. Darren and his wife, Debra, are the proud parents to Laila (Kehillah ‘21) and Talia, a current seventh grader at Gideon Hausner. 

“Darren’s accomplishments over the last six years have been extraordinary. He has led Kehillah’s growth and helped establish it as a national model of excellence in Jewish education.” – Roger Rosner, Kehillah Board Chair

Please join us in thanking him for his direction, leadership, and dedication to our community. 

Welcoming our next Head of School, Dr. Daisy Pellant

“I am both excited and humbled to introduce myself as the new Head of School for Kehillah Jewish High School. I was initially drawn to the description of Kehillah as a unique offering within the Silicon Valley educational landscape, balancing academic excellence with holistic support. Creating a place where students can truly be themselves, be challenged, and be successful, is quite an accomplishment. From my first contact with the Search Committee, Kehillah’s genuine warmth and indefatigable commitment to this purpose shone brightly.” – Dr. Daisy Pellant
