Hillel Community Day School of Rochester, New York, is a Kindergarten through Eighth Grade day school providing an enriched curriculum of general and Judaic studies. We foster positive American and Judaic values.
Hillel Community Day School provides a dynamic, child-centered program of excellence for all Jewish children in a family atmosphere. Hillel integrates a superb secular and Judaic studies curriculum, based on Jewish values and a deep love for Israel. Combining a creative, stimulating environment with an outstanding and dedicated faculty, Hillel develops the blessing and promise inherent in each student.
Every Jewish child inherits our religion and rich culture. This inheritance can be acquired by learning and living traditional Judaism daily.
