New England Hebrew Academy (NEHA) was founded to provide an exemplary, well rounded Judaic and secular education, to children in the greater Boston Jewish community. Its educational policies are inclusive and individualized and they encourage students to utilize their individual potential and strive for excellence.

The New England Hebrew Academy was founded in 1944 by the Previous Lubavitch Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson Z''L. Our emblem symbolizes our mission, which is to inspire our students to study Torah diligently so that they in turn can spread the light of Torah to the world.

Faculty members are chosen for their expertise, as well as their desire to make a  difference in the lives of their students. They serve as positive role models for the children.

Mission Statement

The mission of New England Hebrew Academy (NEHA) is to provide and promote the highest quality Judaic and secular education to a diverse community of Jewish children. Our aim is to cultivate students to reach personal excellence, and to be responsible members of American - Jewish society. Within a warm nurturing environment, our focus is to inspire a love for learning, develop excellent academic and social skills, and foster responsibility in each child.

A well-balanced education will develop in our students a commitment to using Torah values as a guide to the decisions of life and community.

Educational Philosophy

The New England Hebrew Academy was founded on the principles of Chabad philosophy, which is a way of life that integrates the love of G‑d, intellectual knowledge and understanding of the Torah, and the appreciation of the uniqueness of every individual.

Our administration and staff implement this philosophy in all areas of Judaic and general studies while fostering a supportive environment for all our students.
