The New England Jewish Academy


In 2019, the Bess and Paul Sigel Hebrew Academy of Greater Hartford and the Hebrew High School of New England merged to create a vibrant, cornerstone preschool-grade 12 Orthodox Jewish Day School in West Hartford, CT. The New England Jewish Academy serves students in the West Hartford, Greater New Haven, and Greater Springfield communities as well as boarders from the southern New England region. The school is generously supported by the Jewish Community Foundations of Greater Hartford, New Haven, and Western Massachusetts, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, and the Pava Tuition Initiative.
