The mission of the Scarsdale Hebrew High School is to provide Hebrew language education for high school students, grades 8-12 in Scarsdale. 

The underlying philosophy of the CHHS is that learning leads to wisdom, understanding and faith. Our purpose is to teach modern and ancient Hebrew language in a stimulating and invigorating learning environment.

Our methodology emphasizes personal responsibility, respect for others, the value of education, and the importance of Jewish heritage.




Students will participate in a class on Modern Hebrew that focuses on oral proficiency and comprehension, verb conjugation, grammar and cursive writing. 

Students participate in Classical Hebrew Text. This course is comprised of texts that include the books of Bereishit (Genesis), Shemot (Exodus), Neviim (Prophets), Mishna (Jewish Law), and Pirkei Avot (Ethics).

Our instructors work closely together to present a curriculum that is stimulating and thought provoking. Classical texts come to life as students are encouraged to discover their deeper meanings and their relevance in our day and age.

Our program is geared for students in grades 8-12. We offer classes for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced students who speak only English as well as classes for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced students who are conversant in the Hebrew language. Our class size is typically 8-12 students per level. We place strong emphasis on individual growth and development
