|Our school is headed by Orel Beilinson, a historian with a rich background in education and leadership. As an academic, he specialises in the history of Eastern Europe and investigates question related to the social causes and implications of religious belief and military services during the early modern and modern eras. In addition, Mr. Beilinson is interested in and committed to the implementation of statistical methods and digital history methods in historical research. A sworn polyglot, he is fluent in Hebrew, English, German, Arabic, Russian, Serbian, and Hungarian, and is proficient in reading other languages.
In addition to his administrative duties, Mr. Beilinson teaches courses in history, East European Studies, statistics, and geography in all grade levels. According to him, his most interesting (non-introductory) classes are "Religion in the USSR" and "Schools: A Sociological, Historical, and Anthropological Inquiry".

She holds an MA in Comparative Literature from Bar Ilan University, which she also attended for her undergraduate education, majoring in English Literature and Jewish Art.
