United Hebrew Institute

Tel: (570)208-3801
  • 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.
