Dalet School is a non-profit religious school located in Bethel, Pennsylvania.
Dalet School was founded in 1976 by the Assemblies of Yahweh to keep the children of the members out of the worldly school system.
Dalet School teaches the basics of education while maintaining a spiritual atmosphere.
The Dalet, the fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, portrayed above, symbolizes an open door.
Revelation 3:7-8 states, "An open door which none can shut." Therefore, Dalet School is often thought of as an open door of opportunity.
Directing Elder Jacob O. Meyer is the chief administrator of this wonderful school.
Deacon Raymond Shaparenko is the Acting Principal and head teacher of Dalet School.
Deacon Shaparenko teaches all subjects from K-12 except for a few select classes taught by his assistants.
Dalet School consists of two one-room buildings. One for grades K-6, the other for grades 7-12.
In the one-room classroom setting, as each student studies he can acquire an idea of what his future classes will be like and can also review the classes he has previously had.
The most rewarding part of a Dalet School education is that the children will grow in their obedience to Almighty Yahweh.
