Isaac Melnick

Torah Academy Prep, North Miami Beach, Fla.

Rabbi Isaac Melnick has served as a Judaics teacher in South Florida for more than 15 years. During this time he has operated Torah 4 Everyone, a well-attended after school program for children enrolled in public schools to receive their Judaic education and Camp Coolanu, a Judaic education summer camp. These programs have served more than 1,000 families, inspiring Isaac to design and open a private school that is financially accessible to all families, regardless of income level and which has both high academic standards and an integrated Judaics curriculum. His dream is that all children have access to a school where they feel loved and can learn in a fun, enjoyable environment that adapts to their individual needs.
