The Heschel Experience
החוויה המיוחדת בהשל

At The Toronto Heschel School, we approach your child’s growth as a whole: intellectual, social, creative, physical and ethical. Our community is inclusive and respectful of all Jewish practices. At Heschel, the whole curriculum is integrated which promotes a deeper understanding of the content and allows children to apply their learning across all disciplines. Our students are encouraged to think about global issues and also to act. The Toronto Heschel School is committed to environmental education and stewardship and we are proud to be the first Jewish Day School in Ontario to reach Platinum EcoSchool status.

A moment of insight is a fortune, transporting us beyond the confines of measured time.
— Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
