PTTS Hebrew School

COVID-19 UPDATE: In light of the current circumstances and uncertainty regarding NYC school openings, we have decided to put PTTS on hiatus for the Fall semester. We will evaluate whether to resume in-person (or virtual) in the Spring.


Due to the pandemic - in person Hebrew School has been put on hold.  However, we are currently offering one-on-one tutoring catered to each child's individual needs.   Please see the links below for more informaton about this program. 


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.
