Independent Hebrew School
The Sunday School for Jewish Studies is an independent Hebrew School that meets once a week in Newton, MA, offering families west of Boston Hebrew education, Jewish cultural identity, and optional preparation for Bar Mitzvah/Bat Mitzvah.
Students 5-13 from Newton, Brookline, Needham, Natick, Chestnut Hill, and nearby Metro West towns attend our Hebrew School to explore Jewish history, learn the Hebrew language, discover their religious and cultural heritage, and the meaning behind Jewish holidays.
The Hebrew School curriculum explores tzedakah (charity), religious rituals, and Jewish themes in daily life. Our teachers are experienced, enthusiastic and committed educators, bringing richness and vibrancy to our Hebrew School experience.
We are an independent Hebrew School that welcomes all branches of Jewish religion, including interfaith families. In addition to youth education classes and celebrations, we offer occasional adult programs and High Holiday prayer services for the Newton and surrounding Metro West community.
