East Midwood Hebrew Day School
The East Midwood Hebrew Day School, Rabbi Harry Halpern Educational Center strives to instill in its students knowledge and respect for their religious and cultural heritage, as well as a thorough understanding of the world in which they live.
The school also aims to develop a sense of self-worth linked to an ethical code practiced by Jews for thousands of years.
It is vital that our students receive secular and religious educations and experiences that are of the highest quality possible.
We believe that it is also our responsibility to include our parents and community in all facets of our school program.
We consider the East Midwood Hebrew Day School to be a family, not just a school.
The benefits of the education our students receive are not just limited to them alone.
The advantages of a bicultural education extend beyond the classroom and into the homes of our families where all are recipients of the knowledge and traditions of our people and our nation.
