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.
