Welcome to the Hertz Early Learning Center at Temple Israel!

The Erna and Julius Hertz Nursery School was founded in 1984 by a group of parents who wanted to see their shul have a Jewish preschool.  Since the first class in 1985, Hertz has grown to epitomize excellence in Jewish preschool education seamlessly fused with child centered play and “Kehillah” community.

The Hertz Early Learning Center at Temple Israel offers a unique multifaceted pre-school program for children ages 2.9 through age 5. Affiliated with Temple Israel of Sharon, the program offers varied experiences and curriculum to encourage the child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth.  Hertz’s curriculum provides a seamless integration of the secular and Judaic environment. Children explore and are exposed to a theme-oriented program that complements areas of Jewish living and learning.
