Hebrew School

Our Hebrew School, the Polonies Talmud Torah School, provides children and teens, ages 3–16, with a substantive Jewish education in a posi­tive and engaging environment. Our educated, trained and enthusiastic staff create an enjoyable and warm learning environment in which children are motivated to learn and grow.  Students develop Hebrew language skills (reading, writing and comprehension), learn the major portions of the Tanakh, Jewish holiday rituals, Jewish history, and how Jewish ideas inform our values in modern times.
