Jewish Education

For our youngest learners, an excellent, warm and deeply Jewish education can be found at Gan Mah Tov preschool.  

Oakland Hebrew Day School (K-8) is the premier Modern Orthodox day school of the Bay Area that serves a diverse group of Jewish families, along with Contra Costa Jewish Day School on the other side of the Oakland/Berkeley hills.  

Jewish Community High School of the Bay, A community school located in San Francisco, partners closely with the Modern Orthodox community to support our students with kosher Food, a Mechitza Minyan every morning, and Tanach and Talmud classes taught by skilled Jewish educators.  Meira Academy is an all-girls orthodox high school that serves the Bay Area from its location in Palo Alto.
