2020-2021 Academic Achievements Grades 1-8

With this unique and challenging year now behind us, we would like to take the opportunity to look back and share some of our many accomplishments this year! 

"Music and the Brain" Instrumental Music Program, Grades 1 - 4

Hillel Yeshiva students in grades 1 through 4 became the first Yeshiva Day School to join this new program in which students develop their music appreciation through this hand on experiential learning experience.

Expanded iTalAm Hebrew Language Program, Grades 1 - 3

Hillel Yeshiva 1st through 3rd graders enjoyed the blended learning experience of Ivrit through teacher instruction and personalized digital learning in which students progress at their own pace in this engaging and child-friendly curriculum.

Expanded Hazanut Program with Hazan Avraham Betesh, Grades 3 - 8

Students in grades 3 through 8 immersed themselves in the authentic sounds of real Sephardic pizmonim for all occasions, daily, Shabbat, holidays and more.

New Science Curriculum, Grades 7 - 8

This course integrates rigorous content and practical applications to reflect how science and engineering are practiced in the real world.  Students enjoyed discovering and experimenting with many hands-on, STEM related activities which helped foster curiosity and wonder in science.  

Campus Enhancements

Hillel Yeshiva students in the Elementary and Middle School enjoyed returning to the campus to eat lunch in the new Middle School Lounge, play basketball, volleyball, tether ball and more on our new recess fields.

Unique Milestone Celebrations

Hillel Yeshiva honored timely milestone events through beautiful in-person celebrations of 1st Grade Siddur, 2nd Grade Humash, 8th Grade Graduation and more.


New Hillel Yeshiva Learning Center, Grades 1 - 8

All Hillel students in grades 1 - 8 benefited from this new academic support system. Using best practices of small group instruction, students are pulled out for direct support, creating favorable students to teacher ratio in the classroom for all students to learn on their just right level.

Sephardic Heritage Exploration, Grade 8

The history of Syria is one that our students study from way back during the Babylonian Empires. However, in this course of study, our students learned about the Syrian culture as it relates to the Syrian Jews. Partnering with the Sephardic Heritage Museum, Mrs. Sally Cohen taught the students about Jewish life in Syria and the cultures we so proudly hold on to today.

Musical Celebrations

Music came alive at Hillel Yeshiva this year with special programming including, Rosh Hodesh with Rabbi B, RJ2 Day of Positivity Concert, Itzik Dadya End of Year Concert and more!

New Weekly Communications

Hillel Yeshiva parents enjoyed a glimpse into their child’s week through the newly crafted weekly communication tools; "The Elementary Express” and “Middle School Moments & Milestones.”

Holiday Celebrations

Students loved celebrating the holidays at Hillel this year, creating and keeping special memories through airbrushing, photo booths and more.

Special Guests

Students and faculty welcomed our special guests including, Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar, Commander Robinson, Captain Harold Goodman and more!
