PTTS Hebrew School Scholarship Fund

The Polonies Talmud Torah School, founded in 1802, was the first Hebrew School in America.  Now, over 200 years later, our school still is still pioneering in its ability to provide children and teens, ages 3–16, with a substantive Jewish education in a posi­tive and engaging environment. 

 We offer many scholarships so that no qualified student is turned away due to financial limitations.  Last year we distributed over $10,000 in tuition support.  In order to continue, we ask for your help.  Please consider sponsoring a student for an academic year or semester or contributing to our Hebrew school scholarship fund with a tax deductible contribution of any amount.
