Thank you for your interest in the Cheder. We are dedicated to each student’s growth academically, socially and spiritually. Our faculty and staff are committed to giving personalized attention to each student, and to maintaining small class size. Children develop a love and appreciation of learning in an environment that encourages exploration, discovery and expression.

We have built a warm and welcoming community – everyone here is part of our “family”. Decorated bulletin boards, children singing, innovative teaching and learning is just a glimpse of what you will observe in our school. We are not just a school, but a community where friendships between children and families are formed forever. Our children learn a love for Torah and the Jewish people.

We look forward to getting to know you and your family. We appreciate your interest and invite you to schedule a personal tour to see Cheder in action.
