Hillel Academy is the only Jewish day school in the Southern Tier of New York. We are unique as a day school in a number of ways, including our commitment to teaching each student in a multi-age learning environment.
We are also unique as a pluralistic school: As a true community school Hillel Academy brings together children from all corners of Broome County’s Jewish community—Conservative, Orthodox, Reform and unaffiliated—in a warm, nurturing environment. Hillel Academy fosters a community spirit based on mutual acceptance, and recognizes, respects and values diversity.
First Grade Siddur Party
Our students have been learning teffilot - many since entering Ganeinu and Kindergarten. In this special ceremony, their work was recognized, and their abilities celebrated.
The ceremony began with a presentation of 5 prayers: Modeh Ani, Ma Tovu, Adon Olum, Yigdal, and Shema. Prior to the singing of prayers, the students explained the meaning of each prayers. Each student was presented with a new siddur.
