United Hebrew Institute

Tel: (570)208-3801
Grades: PK - 6 | 54 students
The United Hebrew Institute stands alone in the Wyoming Valley providing the finest quality education available for the Jewish child.
We believe our synthesized approach to education, combining the best in general studies with traditional Jewish learning develops knowledge and character in each child.
The United Hebrew Institute was founded in 1950 by a group of dedicated people who felt the Wyoming Valley needed a Hebrew Day School to educate the Valley's Jewish children with a strong foundation in both secular and religious content.
Throughout its history by 1955, the school had six grades the school has striven to achieve a balance of excellent secular studies with a religious curriculum that provides an understanding and appreciation of Jewish practices, heritage and a strong bond with the land of Israel.
Most importantly, neither half of this dual curriculum is given less attention or suffers in quality because of this dual mission.
