New England Jewish Academy was formed in July 2019 when the Bess and Paul Sigel Hebrew Academy of Greater Hartford and Hebrew High School of New England merged to form a single preschool – Grade 12 entity.
The Hebrew Academy was an integral part of the area’s Jewish community for more than 7 decades, and its legacy has impacted many generations. HHNE was established in 1996 to fulfill the need for an Orthodox high school in this region, and became a standard of academic excellence in Judaic and general studies
NEJA builds upon the strengths of each entity and creates a new school with a unified and forward-thinking curriculum, challenging academics, traditional Judaic studies, and innovative activities designed to nurture the love of learning in a thriving modern Orthodox environment.
Currently operating in their historic locations, all NEJA students are expected to be integrated onto the West Hartford Campus for the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
