Grades: K - 9 | 983 students
Beth Rivkah was created as a flagship institution, pioneering the Lubavitch Educational System for girls, which prepares young girls for their futures as Jewish women leaders.
In the aftermath of the Holocaust with the Jewish people in a state of despair the institution assumed vital importance, in its role of educating and inspiring the next generation of Jewish women against the tide of assimilation spreading in the United States.
This ultimately became an anchor in the Rebbe’s historic efforts to dispatch energetic emissaries who illuminated and ultimately transformed the Jewish landscape.
The Mission of Beth Rivkah is to provide and promote the highest quality Judaic and general education to Jewish girls.
Our aim is to inspire and empower students to reach personal excellence, and to be responsible members of American society.
Within a warm nurturing environment we, cultivate within students a love for learning, guide them in developing academic and social skills, and foster responsibility in each individual child.
