Important Information From the SHDS Board

Dear Parents and Community Members,

I’d like to announce that our Head of School Search Committee has been formed and has started its work to find the school’s next leader. We’ve received an application from a candidate who has generated interest.

The candidate is Laura Lavine, educational administrator with over forty years of experience in the education profession. Laura is a member of Temple Concord and has served on the SHDS board and education committee.

Please join us at a presentation and discussion with Laura, tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday, 5/9, at 7pm in the SHDS library. (Stay tuned for confirmation.)


I know this is short notice, but we hope that many of you can attend to take part in this important process. Please contact me (or search committee chair, Melissa Fellman) with any questions.


Shabbat shalom.

Abby Scheer

SHDS Board President


Welcome to the Syracuse Hebrew Day School

The leaders of our community’s future are being created today at the Syracuse Hebrew Day School. Day School kids are confident, thoughtful, motivated, curious, creative, expressive, engaged and successful.

We offer a progressive and enriched program of general and Judaic studies complemented by a full range of co-curricular programs for Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. In addition to our general and Judaic studies, students enjoy art, music, drama, physical education and technology.

Small classes, highly individualized instruction and caring and committed teachers make the Syracuse Hebrew Day School the right choice for parents committed to an outstanding education for their children.

Our students are enthusiastic learners. They thrive on the attention they get from teachers who love children and who love teaching. Our curriculum is challenging and enriching. Our students enjoy art, music, physical education and technology. They learn to love learning and they learn about their Jewish heritage.

We are proud and happy about what we do at the Day School — proud because we take education seriously, and happy because education here is a joyful experience.
