Giving Opportunities

Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy has lovingly educated Jewish children for over 65 years. More than 3,500 children have spent their formative years in our classrooms and we take great pride in the accomplishments they have made throughout the world.

Staying true to our mission, we never turn down a child for lack of funds. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial aid are needed each year. We invite you to partner with us in providing children with the first rate education they deserve.

Thank you for your generous support.
