That every Heschel graduate is empowered with the academic and social skills, the curiosity, creativity, confidence, passion and diligence to achieve excellence in all they pursue, and that they improve our world with compassion, integrity, and a deep understanding of Jewish studies and values.



To engage and excite every student with expert, inspired and, passionate teachers committed to teaching for understanding and mastery by every student.

To deliver a curriculum of academic excellence in General studies integrated with Judaic studies that provide a deep understanding of Jewish history, texts and the Hebrew language.

To safeguard a school community where integrity, respect, mutual support, environmental protection, and social justice, is role modeled by us and expected of all.

To remain an interdenominational religious Jewish Day School, drawing from a wide range of Jewish observance. The school respects each family's choices regarding Jewish observance in the home. The laws of Shabbat and Kashrut are observed in the school.



A moment of insight is a fortune, transporting us beyond the confines of measured time.

- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
