OurSchool

The Israeli School of Lexington is a non-profit organization aimed at strengthening Israeli-Jewish identity, while promoting the study of Hebrew language and the Israeli and Jewish culture.

The school was founded in 2002 by a group of parents who aspired to create educational and social framework for the children of Israeli families in Lexington and surrounding towns.

The School has a Board of Directors consisting of students parents, and a principal.

The purpose of the school is to teach and reinforce the Hebrew language through reading and writing studies, Jewish history and Israeli culture. Also taught are the Bible stories, civic education and Jewish and Israeli holidays. The program is compatible with the curricula of the Ministry of Education in Israel, the lessons delivered by a dedicated educational, experienced and skilled team, and the instruction takes place in the Hebrew language.

The school has become a home for the Israeli community in Lexington and surrounding cities such as Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Cambridge, and Waltham, Chelmsford, Andover, Ashland, and Westford. Since this community is not as large as those which are closer to Boston, the school becomes a community center. Some of the most popular activities of the school are the holiday parties. We celebrate Sukkot, ֿTu Bishvat, Hanukkah, Purim, Independence Day and Lag B’Omer together while school parents are fully active in planning, organizing and running the parties. These celebrations are held on weekends, outside the normal operating hours of the school.

During the current school year (2016-2017), the school offers education for students in grades kindergarten to sixth grade.

Classes are held on Thursday afternoons between the hours of 4:15 to 6:15 pm.
