I was in Kindergarden and primary classes from appximately 1940 to 1947 under my mother’s name Joseph Vetrovsky or Petrovsky.
I was born in th French Hospital opposite my school ! My real father who had a restaurant and bar was located next to British Headquarters which was positioned between Telaviv and Jaffa. He died from an appendix rupture when I was 6 months old. Please contact me if you can. I will come early Novemer to visit you ...Zirak Torossian married my mother and adopted me later on. I was of
course happy about that! He was a good father. Now I am looking for his relatives....Kevork and David Torossian or whoever is left of the family in Jaffa.
I will try to find accommodation in Jaffa itself for 2 weeks and roam around the souls and little restaurants. Until then, greetings and seeing each other..Inshallah // Joseph

This school is on Ajami street facing the English hospital. It stands southward after the Latin Church . The street dividing them goes to Deir al Aqbqt which owns the area until North of Jabal Araqtinji.

I attended Tabeetha between 1969 - 1979. I was born in Jaffa and moved to Montreal, Canada in early 1980. I have vivid memories of my school years and would like to connect with Irit Noah, Joyce Cohen and Tavassa Israel whom I often think about...

Greetings to all the Tabeetha family. My name is Zewotir Desalegn Alemu or preferably called "Ziku" for short and I hail from Ethiopia. I was a student of Tabeetha who started from nursery (1995) till third grade (2000), which unfortunately I had to fly back to my country for my Dad was a diplomat who worked for the Ethiopian Embassy and finalized his stay in Tel-Aviv. Along with me was my little sister, Eyerusalem D. Alemu ("Luna" for short), who also attended with me in the same school. I have lots and lots and LOTS of memories of this school that are still presumed to be alive in my world. I really really miss my teachers and the principal back then. I guess it's been precisely 13 years since I've heard from the school and forgetting could be the only misfortune that could jinx it for me. I remember my teacher Mrs. Anderson and the principal back then, Mr. Motorshead, and ofcourse my friends by that time who were Issa, Vikki, Nancy, Ibrahim, and I could list more. I would kindly like to seek keeping in touch with my very former teachers with absolute happiness with whomever who appeals to the memories I could share with. I believe that all my data and records are still kept in Tabeetha and I hope there would be some teacher who would look up to it and catch up with me. I am now a final year college student in Bangalore, India pursuing my bachelor of Computer Applications and I'm 21 years old now.
- Zewotir D. Alemu (Ziku) - (1995-2000)- Yes! That's me
- This is to the teacher who finds my picture and data and remembers me; my email address is

This is Tabeetha school on Yeffet street 21,in Jaffa-Yafo.

A Christian Educational Association,which also functioned or functions as a Church School of the Holy Scriptures.

I attended Tabeetha school on regular daily basis in the years 1966-1972.
At some period I was a good friend of Dan Don Johanson from Sweden.
I was also a friend of Lisa and Lili Damuni of the Maths Pythagoras class in the upper forms.

By the way I was born in the same hospital as Lisa so we were sort of soul sisters.

Tabeetha School in our days was a very special Christian Educational Institution/Association.

With the message of Live and let Live....

Hello all. I was at Tabeetha on and off between 1970 and 1974. I often wonder what happened to my friends from those days. I left to go to Cyprus and with the coup and the Turkish invasion I just lost touch. Best wishes to Bruno, Hans Ulrich, Anne Marie, Bettina, Baukje and especially Ariane. The staff were great too. I am now a teacher of Art History in Oxfordshire, England.

My class teacher in the 6th grade was Miss Androus, and my headmistress was Miss Mc Pherson.

My name is Gianfranco Colliva and I went to the College des Freres in the 60's. I am looking for a girl called Batia Erlich, from Haifa, who went to Tabeetha in the late 60's. Last seen in Chicago in the 80's and, apparently, her name is now Barbara Harrigton. Any help given to trace her, is highly appreciated. Many of her friends are looking for her.
Thank you for any help.

This is the school I went to from 1961 to 1965. Although it is a long time ago that I was at school, I still keep happy memories of our carefree school days there. The nicest thing was that Tabeetha school made it possible to meet so many people from many different countries. Here I would like to mention that to a great extent the good atmosphere at school was due to the remarkable and outstanding personality of our headmistress Miss J.B. Rosie, M.A., M.B.E. I am looking for classmates from Tabeetha and would be very happy if anyone answers this message. Best wishes, Rumiana

My name is Zlatka and I am 52. I come from Bulgaria.I used to live in Tel Aviv from 1964 to 1967 and was a student at Tabeetha School - Jaffa. That was a great time for me. I had a lot of friends and we were in touch after I left but not for a long time. Very often I still think about them and would be very happy if anyone comes across that message and writes to me. I have tried to find the address of the school but it happens to be very difficult. Any contact with anyone from Tabeetha School would be great. Best wishes - Zlatka
