2272 Established in 1955 as the only pluralistic Jewish community day school in Hampton Roads, The Hebrew Academy of Tidewater (HAT) provides high quality, integrated Judaic and general studies education that establishes a strong foundation for lifelong learning in a dynamic, supportive, and enriching Jewish environment.  Because all families are welcomed, regardless of their denomination or level of observance, we build bridges across the Jewish community.

Students enrolled in HAT are intellectually curious, self-disciplined, and independent thinkers.  They are involved in a holistic community that engages them in the world around them, and they emerge from our program as better students, better people, and better citizens.  They are happy, respectful and devoted to their education because of the close student-teacher relationship, small class size and differentiated learning that takes place in the classes.

HAT Graduates excel after leaving our community and serve as leaders in their academic, philanthropic, and Jewish communities. The future of the Jewish people is stronger because HAT students are secure in their Jewish identity and have a strong commitment to the State of Israel.

It is no secret that a Jewish day school education is expensive.  We chose to participate in the LIFE & LEGACY program to ensure that HAT will be funded for generations to come.    What is amazing about the LIFE & LEGACY program is that people of every age and capacity can make a commitment to secure the future.

By becoming a legacy society member, you will show the community that you:

  • Recognize that Jewish education is a cornerstone of our Jewish community;
  • Believe that every child, regardless of financial circumstances, deserves a Jewish day school education;
  • Understand that instilling a love for learning, Torah, and the State of Israel in our children will inspire future generations to make Judaism a vital part of their lives.

Support Jewish education for tomorrow’s generation, by leaving your Jewish legacy today!
