Who We Are
A Letter from the Director 

Imagine a Hebrew School where kids don't want to miss a day. They come in with a smile and leave humming a Hebrew song. Walking through the halls, you can hear the sounds of lively discussion, of singing, laughter and prayer. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism. Imagine the pride of his/her parents.

Welcome to Hebrew School of the Arts, an exciting and innovative educational program in Haverford, PA. Hebrew School of the Arts has exciting new programs, a dynamic staff and interested students. Our staff is carefully selected for their broad knowledge of Judaism, dedication and experience in teaching children. Our student body is made up of children from various backgrounds and affiliations.

Our goal is to provide the most positive and productive Hebrew School experience for all Jewish children, regardless of prior knowledge and background, affiliations, or level of observance. We bring the joys, values and traditions of Judaism to life through art, song, dance, drama, games, trips, collaborative learning exercises, and extra-curricular activities. 

Our curriculum and program cover all areas Jewish culture, life, traditions, language, and history, in an environment of joy, warmth, and friendship. 

The lessons learned here today will stay with your child for a lifetime, imbuing their every day with a sense of pride, purpose, identity, and confidence.

We encourage you, as a parent to get involved, ask questions and keep in touch with our school. If there is anything you would ever like to discuss with me, feel free to call me at 610-353-3835.

Looking forward to a fun and productive year,

Rikki Altein
