Saying Goodbye


June 12, 2022 12-4PM

About the Event

Join us for a party and barbeque to say farewell to our beloved Gabb Road building (formerly known as the Bess & Paul Sigel Hebrew Academy of Greater Hartford.)

Reunite with your classmates and teachers and take a trip down memory lane.

We are thrilled that our special guest, Rabbi Baruch Hilsenrath, the Hebrew Academy’s longest serving principal, will join us. Show your children where you first studied Torah. Walk the halls (and steps) of the Gabb Road building one last time and celebrate all that you learned and the friendships you made within its walls.

The event will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2022 from 12 – 4 p.m.

There will be games and activities for kids of all ages, as well as a chance to look into the future. Review plans of the lower school’s new addition that will be built on the NEJA campus on Bloomfield Avenue in West Hartford.

All are welcome. Help make this day very special by contacting your friends and former classmates and encouraging them to attend too! Bring your parents, children and grandchildren.

We look forward to all of us being together on this special occasion!
