About Us

Welcome from the Rosh HaYeshiva

Dear NSHA Families and Friends,

Welcome to the North Shore Hebrew Academy!

We are a warm and vibrant school community located on three campuses in the heart of Great Neck, New York.  Our more than 650 students come to us from a wide variety of neighborhoods and backgrounds, making for an excitingly diverse student body.  For more than sixty years, our commitment to Torat Yisrael, Derech Eretz (sensitivity to others), Simchat Chayim (a joy of learning) and Achrayut (responsibility) has informed our curriculum, programming, and all that we do at NSHA during and beyond our school day.

This year we explore the theme of איזהו חכם? הלומד מכל אדם – “Who is wise?  One who learns from everyone.”  We have so much to offer one another as Modern Orthodox, involved and committed Jews.

I urge you to peruse this site to get a taste of who we are – but you will learn even more by seeing us in action.  Please connect with us and arrange a visit. We look forward to welcoming you in person!

We are not just a school – we are a community.
