Our Philosophy

  At Chabad Hebrew School of the Arts we help create Jewish pride and spiritual connections that last a lifetime.

Our non-judgmental friendly and inclusive policy means every Jewish child is welcome, regardless of affiliation, religious observance or prior knowledge. Our diverse student body provides a setting where each child is comfortable and able to learn in a relaxed place.

1. Children come first

Our top priority is creating an interactive learning environment in which each and every child feels welcome, happy and satisfied. Every effort is made to ensure that the learning experience for each student is positive, stimulating, exciting and satisfying. We go out of our way to ensure that every child is motivated, stimulated and engaged in exciting, thought provoking activities.

 2. Learning For Life

 Our goal extends beyond giving students the basic skills and knowledge they need in preparation for their Bar or Bat Mitzvahs. We create a solid foundation of love for Jewish living and learning that will serve your children for the rest of their lives.

3- Enjoying the Learning

We believe that learning should be fun. As Chabad Hebrew School of the Arts, we try to incorporate all modalities into our learning process. Students use art, movement, drama and song and integrate auditory, visual and kinesthetic activities in all areas. A busy environment, reaching every child is a happy place, with empowered and happy people.
