Schools

In Buffalo we have two Jewish Day School options as well as an Orthodox Hebrew School for students attending public school.

 

Ohr Temimim infuses its students with a traditional Jewish education, comprehensive in scope, while simultaneously incorporating an exceptional general studies program for Preschool - 8th Grade.

Launched in September 2019, the Kadimah Scholars is an exciting new partnership between Kadimah Academy, the Buffalo Jewish Federation and The Park School of Buffalo, creating an innovative program at Park that is unique throughout all of North America. The Park School, a century-old independent non-religious private progressive school in Amherst, is now offering our Hebrew and Judaic Studies classes as part of their K-12 curriculum and program, with two former Kadimah teachers as part of Park’s regular faculty, supported by the Buffalo Jewish community. Participating students, known as Kadimah Scholars at Park School, will take Hebrew and Judaic Studies both during the regular school day at Park, as well as during supplemental “club” periods on two days after school. Additionally, Kadimah Scholars continue to pray every morning before school starts, celebrate Shabbat every week as well as all the holidays, and even share our customs and traditions with the broader Park community, who have demonstrated tremendous support and an eagerness to learn.

Additionally, Chai Hebrew school is for K-8 grade students who want to attend public school but supplement it with a Jewish education.
