A well-balanced education will develop in our students: an understanding that Torah values are the guide to the decisions of life, a commitment to community, and a love of life-long learning and teaching.
“If we wish to have a future generation of identifiable, Torah observant Jews, we must involve ourselves in the guidance of children from the youngest age in the proper Torah path.” (Hashlichus Hachinuchis B’igros Ha’Rebbe)
HEBREW ACADEMY, founded at the behest of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, believes that every Jewish child has a “birthright” to an authentic Torah education of the highest academic standards, along with an excellent general education to enable him/her to grow into a productive, successful, and committed member of the larger Jewish and world community. As emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the world view of Chabad philosophy propels us forward.
Our vision is a school where any Jewish child, regardless of affiliation, can receive instruction at his/her level and advance in all areas. Different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and observance should enrich the school population, and nurture our empathy and acceptance of all Jews as expected of us in the mitzvah, “ואהבת לרעך כמוך - You shall love your fellow Jew as yourself.”
Until recently a Jew could be isolated from or assimilated into the world. Our vision is not a compromise between the two. It is a bold new course charted by the Rebbe’s view of a Jew’s place in the world; as G-d’s personal ambassador in perceiving and extracting the good and holy in our world.
