Who We Are

Welcome to a place where curiosity rules. Where children learn to honor timeless traditions and think for themselves. Where they’re encouraged to ask bold questions, confront paradox and discover new connections. Where critical inquiry feels like fun, and lights go on in unexpected ways. Welcome to a place where students see links between Moses and Macbeth, anthropology and architecture, biology and Bible. Where children understand empathy so deeply that they relate to characters — real and fictional — across every era in time and draw guidance from them for living today. ¬†Welcome to a place where everything feels accessible, nothing is off-limits and students yearn to engage the world. ¬†Welcome to Schechter Manhattan. Engage the Mind. Engage the World.
