Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

HAFTR Lower School builds on the skills obtained at HAFTR Early Childhood, and continues to focus on the development of the whole child. Social and emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and middot are cultivated within our warm and caring, yet challenging learning environment. Recognizing that each child is unique, with individual educational needs, interests, and learning styles, every student is given the opportunity to maximize his/her learning potential with curricula designed to accommodate our community of learners.

The student experience at HAFTR is characterized by inquiry-driven learning, a strong focus on social emotional development and wellbeing, and a caretaking and collaborative faculty who cultivates a warm learning environment."
Ms. Temima Feldman

Associate Principal
"I am proud to work in a Yeshiva that creates an environment conducive to the intellectual and emotional growth of each student and offers each child a path towards self-growth in social, emotional and intellectual pursuits."
Ms. Tova Zucker

Assistant Principal
"It is our sacred mission to nurture the neshama of each student and support their social-emotional growth within the innovative and challenging academic curriculum, both in Judaic and General studies, for which HAFTR is renowned."
Rabbi Asher Klein

Mashgiach Ruchani N-8
"There is no greater joy and privilege than to be able to help our incredible talmidim connect to Hashem through the learning of Torah and performance of mitzvot. Seeing the excitement that the students have for learning from their rebbeim and morot, and their appreciation for the Torah programming that we provide, drives us to want to give them more and more. It is such a bracha to be able to play a role in helping our children grow in their relationship with Hashem everyday!"

We are so excited for Pesach here at HAFTR. From immersive activities like Model Seder or matzah-making, and meaningful projects like Seder plates for Holocaust survivors to educational initiatives like Pesach around the World, we learned and did so much to get in the Pesach spirit. Chag Kasher v’Sameach from HAFTR! #haftr #pesach @haftrpta @haftr_ec

Our 4th Grade Evening of the Arts this past Wednesday was a major success. Our students highlighted their incredible artwork- from paintings to sculptures to a spectacular mural spray-painted that night! They then shifted from their studios to the stage where they sang uplifting songs, recited special prose, and played a variety of music on their recorders. This segment of the evening was performed through the context of honoring our chayalim fighting in Israel. This segment was uplifting and sincerely special. 
We are very proud of our 4th grade students. It was an evening where all were wowed and inspired. #haftr
