Hebrew School of the Arts to move to the JCC

May 3, 2019

What’s Happening

In a partnership with United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and Chabad of Tidewater, Hebrew School of the Arts is moving to the Simon Family JCC for the 2019–20 school year.

Now entering its second year, Hebrew School for the Arts is an after-school program that places an emphasis on living Judaism joyfully.

Bracha Margolin, who serves as director of the school, brings more than a decade of experience as a trendsetter in creative Jewish education. Under her leadership, the Hebrew School is designed to make Jewish families of all backgrounds feel comfortable and welcome.

“Imagine your child leaving Hebrew school each week,” Margolin says, “with a smile on his or her face, and humming a Jewish tune. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism…it’s the ultimate nachas!”

Lundi Frank, whose twin daughters are in this year’s founding class, says, “It’s like no other Hebrew School I’ve ever seen. My daughters can’t wait to go each week.”

The Hebrew School requires no Synagogue membership or affiliation, and is available for children grades K–6. Starting after the High Holidays, classes will take place on Wednesdays, 4:30–6 pm at the Simon Family JCC. Kosher dinner is included.
