Focus On B’Nai Jeshurun Hebrew School

by NYC Firm Schools on October 21, 2010

If you are looking for a growth-oriented Hebrew School for your children then B’Nai Jeshurun in Manhattan is one you should consider. Located at 270 West 89th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue. The school meets in the Heschel School building.

The B’Nai Jeshurun mission consists of three ideals:

•We believe Judaism is an ongoing search for meaning, and that this search begins in childhood.

The search for meaning begins in childhood and B’Nai Jeshurun educators see themselves as facilitators of this search for Jewish children as they grow into mature adults.

•We believe Jewish identity begins to develop early and that the family and the synagogue must work together to nourish it.

Jewish identity doesn’t happen naturally. Rather, it is developed through community, of which the family and the synagogue are prime conduits.

•We believe the best way to convey the joy and beauty of being Jewish is to provide new and creative ways for children to explore Judaism at each stage of their development.

Judaic studies are an important part of the curriculum at B’Nai Jeshurun. Not only are Judaics covered comprehensively, but there is also a Hebrew curriculum to teach children to recognize the language of Judaism. Students in third through fifth grades and their families are invited to the annual Reach for Shabbat retreat.

The school admits children kindergarten through seventh grade. Only parents of children in second grade or higher need join B’Nai Jeshurun in order for their children to attend the school.
