Mission Statement

At Bais Menachem, students develop a deep love of learning in both general and Judaic studies. Our dedicated teachers and warm, welcoming community help to provide a nurturing, challenging environment that encourages all students to reach their full potential, and become self- confident, responsible citizens with a strong connection to their Judaism and their community.

The students of Bais Menachem, through a well-balanced religious and secular education, will be capable of functioning emotionally, academically, socially, and spiritually as dedicated Jewish men and women in the context of American society.

We offer our students a rich understanding of their Jewish heritage by providing a comprehensive Judaic program. The Secular program and the Judaic Studies curriculum complement each other. This generates a rich blend of knowledge. Additionally, we understand the importance of creating a community for our students and their parents.
