By providing a nurturing, and motivating environment based on the values of Torah and Chassidus, we will develop in our students a lifelong commitment to Torah and Mitzvos; an awareness of Hashem’s loving and detailed involvement in our lives; the ability to be independent and life-long learners; the refined character and personal life skills needed to live with integrity, joy, and confidence, and a commitment to serve in our community.
“If we wish to have a future generation of identifiable, Torah observant Jews, we must involve ourselves in the guidance of children from the youngest age in the proper Torah path.” (Hashlichus Hachinuchis B’igros Ha’Rebbe)
The Lubavitch Hebrew Academy School, founded at the behest of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, believes that every Jewish child has a “birthright” to an authentic Torah education of the highest academic standards, along with an excellent general education to enable him/her to grow into a productive, successful, and committed member of the larger Jewish and world community.
As emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the worldview of Chabad philosophy guides our vision and propels us forward. Our vision is a school where any Jewish child, regardless of affiliation, can receive instruction at his/her level with a view to advancement in all areas.
Different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and observance should enrich the school population, and nurture our empathy and acceptance of all Jews as expected of us in the verse, “כמוך לרעך ואהבת”. Until recently a Jew could be isolated from or assimilated into the world. Our vision is not a compromise between these two.
It is a bold new course charted by the Rebbe’s view of a Jew’s place in the world. Our goal is to educate children to be more than personally observant, rather that they will see themselves as G-d’s personal ambassador to perceive the good in the world, and to bring their own corner of the world closer to the purpose for which it was created.
