Hertz Nursery School was founded in 1984 by a group of parents who wanted their shul to have a Jewish preschool. The school was endowed by the Levine family in memory of Edith’s parents, Erna and Julius Hertz. Since the first class in 1985, Hertz has grown to welcome many second-generation students, epitomizing excellence in Jewish preschool education, seamlessly fused with child-centered play and “Kehillah” community.
Over the years, parents have returned to tell us wonderful stories about the memories and friendships forged during their children’s preschool years that last into adulthood. Hertz has introduced Friday night Challah to many families, which led one former parent to becoming a Rabbi. While we never know where our Jewish family journey’s will take us the Hertz “Kehillah” community always asks where have you been, what can we do for you now and how can we help you go forward. It is this warm loving environment that has sustained us for so many years.
We invite you to join our Kehillah during your Jewish journey and experience all that preschool has to offer for your child and your family.
I look forward to meeting with you and welcoming you to Hertz.
Remember, It All Starts Here!
