The Joy in Creation


So much pride and joy when you work hard and have something your are proud of to show for it.

Helping us GROW


Here at HACDS, we're constantly growing.


From the Judaic program, enrichment, science and more formative assessment provides valuable data on students' abilities, performance, and engagement that drive instruction, support, and motivation.


Thank you Morah Yiska Berkowitz for assessing every single lower school student in their Hebrew Reading (accuracy and fluency) and for the amazing Judaic Staff for providing the instruction and confidence to shine.



Science and Judaics


Values, Strong Academics and Purpose Driven Education come together at the Hebrew Academy on a daily basis.


Hebrew Academy teachers are always looking for innovative ways to add value to the rigorous academic program. Adding a science component to the authentic Judaic program creates an added dimension that helps fuse all the learning together inspiring curiosity that promotes future learning.



First Grade Siddur Party


 Mazel Tov to our first-grade students on your Siddur Party celebration. Our amazing first-grade teachers, Miriam Rapoport and Aidie Nap put on a remarkable program. What a joy to see all the learning and growth our students have made and to watch them be able to read from the siddur was absolutely priceless.
May you continue to grow from strength to strength - Nachas to all!


Recognizing Achievements


It is always amazing when we take the opportunity to recognize the achievements of the students that have worked hard, excelled and shown leadership qualities in how they interact with teachers and peers serving as a true inspiration to their classmates, community and themselves. It is moments like this that propel us all to work harder, strive higher and value the community we are fortunate to be a part of.

Nothing quite like the energy at the Hebrew Academy Rosh Chodesh Assebmbly. Happy Rosh Chodesh Sivan and congratulations to all our award recipients - may your families continue to have lots of nachas!


Music Program for Lower Elementary School


Here at the Hebrew Academy, we have developed a curriculum to inspire, creative and empathetic leaders through our value based academic program complete with an immersive musical education program.

Thank you Mr. A for helping our students learn to understand, enjoy and appreciate all different kinds of music.

From Country to Jazz end even Klezmer, you are always pointing out the rhythms, tempos, and musical technics that make each genre unique.
