The Hebrew Academy welcomes all.
The Hebrew Academy strives to educate the total child. By creating an environment that encourages the child’s intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and ethical growth, it aims to instill a sense of self-worth and a lifelong commitment to learning and Judaism. Opening its doors in 1969, the Hebrew Academy’s mission is to provide a highly challenging and dynamic educational curriculum in an extended family atmosphere.
In 2014, it will be starting Specialized Learning Communities (SLC) for the middle school. This new, rigorous and engaging program challenges all students, particularly those who test highly on standardized tests. SLC is often referred to as a school within a school. The primary purpose of its program is to create more specialized learning environments focused on students’ aptitudes and interests, so as to establish an even more rich and engaging learning experience.
Also, the Preschool at the Hebrew Academy is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its very own library designed especially for children ages 2-6. The library will include outstanding literature geared towards toddlers and parents, as well as cozy built-in couches with pillows, a reader’s theater area and more! The academy will also be hosting tot Shabbats and story time for all to enjoy!

Silver Gan Israel Day Camp sets its stake on 2014.
Silver Gan Israel Day Camp first opened its doors in 1969, and for the last four decades, it has been a leader in day camps for the Jewish community. The camp strives to provide a fun and meaningful Jewish camp experience to children from diverse Jewish backgrounds and marvels at the opportunity to make kids smile. It is passionate about providing safe, quality programming and constantly monitors its progress through the American Camp Association accreditation. As parents themselves, the staff members understand the need to provide a nurturing environment where children learn the importance of sharing, caring and providing for others.
One of the qualities that makes this camp unique is the caliber of counselors. The camp flies in well-qualified and experienced counselors from all around the country (and world). The counselors are known to build a connection with the campers that goes well beyond their time in camp. Also, of interest are some of the things that make this camp unique such as: human hamster balling, a hockey rink, two covered swimming pools, a hay maze, aerial arts, moving rock walls, laser tag and more. Kosher hot lunches, transportation and extended care are also available. In 2014, Silver Gan Israel Day Camp is launching a 9-week program with flexible enrollment options for campers ages 2-15.
