After spending just a short time at SHA, visitors often sense what we know to be true: SHA is a school like no other. We are a historic, venerated Jewish communal institution, while at the same time we are a lively, percolating place of learning and tradition that is teeming with spirit, warmth, and Torah!
It is an honor to serve as Head of School of the Seattle Hebrew Academy. Teachers, staff, parents, and community members collectively contribute to the unique culture of SHA. Our school mission tells it all: our classrooms are alive with challenging Torah studies and rigorous general studies, and our playgrounds are full of happy students who learn the values of working together and mutual respect every day.
It is a joy and a pleasure to watch children grow from our youngest grades — one-year-olds! — through our Lower School and then on to graduate from our Middle School, being part of the SHA Family for 13 years. It’s a truly delightful part of leading our warm, loving, and nurturing Jewish day school.
Everyone connected with SHA loves our school and gives it their all. Come visit our campus and you, too, will experience the warmth that is SHA.
