New York Hebrew prides itself on its dedicated team of staff. Our teachers and volunteers are hand-picked for their warmth, passion and desire to impart their love and knowledge of Judaism to their students.

Recognizing that Hebrew School is an academic after-school program, our teachers endeavor to create an engaging, hands-on learning environment to stimulate and inspire every child.
