The Story

Julia_Crop

“One of the greatest gifts I received from my day school education was the ability to weave together different parts of my identity to form a stronger me. I received a high-quality education in math, science and history, and I also became well-versed in Torah, developed a greater commitment for communal responsibility and learned how to apply the principles and practices of my religion to everyday life. The integration of Judaic and general studies at Berman Hebrew Academy prepared me to become an educated, informed and caring citizen of our community, our nation and of the world.
