Mission Statement

The Hebrew Academy - Huntington Beach, CA

MISSION STATEMENT

At the Hebrew Academy Huntington Beach, pre-school through grade twelve students develop a deep love of learning in both general and Judaic studies. Our dedicated staff, teachers, and warm, welcoming community help to provide a nurturing, yet challenging environment that encourages all students to reach their full potential in order to act as self-confident, responsible citizens with a strong connection to their Judaism and community.

WE BELIEVE:

  • An effective education must include a Jewish religious component
  • Opportunities must be provided for all Jewish children to receive a Jewish education
  • A quality program must include a caring and nurturing environment.
  • Students should be taught respect for all individuals.
  • Students should be prepared to become productive members of society.
  • Appreciation of the process of learning will encourage students to achieve highest level of that learning.
  • Students should be aware of their civic responsibilities and current events in community and world wide.
  • It is important to celebrate what it means to be an American.
  • Loyalty to Judaism and intelligent Jewishness cannot be separated from Jewish learning.
  • Jewish learning is the Torah, or Bible.
  • Through professional instruction the Torah can be made accessible, in its original form, to every child.
  • To train and educate literate laymen, conversant in Jewish lore and traditions is very important.

WE BELIEVE IN:

  • The total education of the Jewish child.
  • Involvement with the Jewish community by promoting spiritual and ritual observances.

  • The total education of the Jewish child in an extended family atmosphere.
