Search Google for NYC Hebrew Schools. You will be flooded with lists of schools, articles, top 10 lists, and reviews. (Heads-up: you might start getting ads on Facebook for Hebrew schools. Don't say I didn't warn you.)
While I can't answer what makes each Hebrew school in Manhattan different; for the most part, they seem pretty similar.
However, I can answer what sets JYC apart from the other Hebrew schools in NYC.
I am often asked by prospective families, "We've never seen this. Why are all your students smiling as they walk in the door?" It's a simple answer- we pride ourselves on individualizing and energizing Hebrew school. When each student walks in, they are greeted by name, they recognize how much attention they receive and how well they are thriving. The energy throughout each class is palpable as you walk the halls. The sounds of Tefillah, prayer, songs, and learning are booming. The programs and projects are unique and filled with enthusiasm.
I once heard a parent say, "JYC is my child's Sunday morning coffee. The same way I look forward to it every Sunday morning, my child looks forward to JYC."
What sets JYC apart from all other Hebrew schools used to be our one-on-one Hebrew language tutoring. But other schools brought that program to their school, as they should. It is incredible to see an 80% increase in Hebrew reading, especially when it's solely based on learning one-on-one with a tutor.
What really sets JYC apart from other Hebrew schools is our commitment to individualizing the program to each student and the energy invested into the school.
