Every time I go to a Hausner event, I feel proud to be Jewish.

Living a vibrant Jewish life is one of our core values, and at Hausner, Jewish life extends beyond the classroom.
Students grow to understand Jewish tradition and culture through meaningful, joyful experiences in a warm and inclusive environment.
Celebrating our identity
We honor the range of Jewish practices and beliefs among our students and their families, and celebrate Jewish holidays and Shabbat with this diversity in mind. Tefillah (prayers), Kabbalat Shabbat (the Friday evening service) and Havdalah (the end of Shabbat) are taught and practiced in engaging and age-appropriate ways that allow students to develop and express their own spirituality.
Coming together as a community
We encourage students and their families to explore and celebrate Jewish life together, and to live their Jewish values by making a difference in their communities. Our holiday celebrations are beautiful occasions that bring the whole Hausner community together. Grade-specific ceremonies like the Siddur Ceremony and Kabbalat Torah allow students to share what they have learned in class with their families.
