Welcome to Hillel Torah! We are proud to be a Preschool-8th grade Modern Orthodox Jewish Day School committed to child-centered, progressive education, serving the greater Chicagoland community. We provide an excellent and equally rigorous general and Judaic studies education in a dual language (Hebrew immersion), Religious Zionist, co-educational setting.
The secret to our strength is the power of the Hillel Torah community. The continued growth and success of our school are driven by the collective commitment, input and contributions of all our stakeholders – students, faculty, staff, families, volunteers, alumni, donors, and community members.
If you are considering joining our community – either as a school for your child, as a place to grow as a professional or as a place to invest in the future of Jewish education – please give me a call and I would love to partner with you.
Please join us in making a difference in the lives of children, educators and families!
We are a dynamic, Modern Orthodox day school preparing the Jewish leaders of tomorrow. Our progressive, child-centered approach promotes academic excellence in Judaic and general studies. Rooted in Torah learning and values, we encourage children to develop a life-long commitment to Medinat Yisrael, the Jewish people and the global community.
Our Hillel Torah family continues to grow and thrive due to the partnership of our generous community of parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and friends. A gift to our Annual Campaign provides a meaningful and direct impact on the lives of Jewish children in our community. Your partnership will help us strengthen our heritage promoting Torah values and our lifelong commitment to Medinat Yisrael.
Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development has partnered with us to review our STEM programming, offer afterschool advanced enrichment programs and help subsidize Sunday enrichment courses.
Hillel Torah is proud to be partnering with the Museum of Science and Industry as part of their School Partner Program to integrate science education at a whole-school level through collaboration with MSI’s top educators, cohort meetings, and school support tools. Utilizing the most cutting-edge research in science learning and skills while aligning our curriculum to the new NGSS standards, we are continually raising the bar for science education in creative and interactive ways at our school.
Every five years, we renew our Accreditation with AdvancED North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, a globally recognized – and the country’s largest – regional accrediting agency. This process involves a rigorous and comprehensive self-study involving all stakeholders (parents, staff and students) via committees and surveys and culminates with a two day visit by an evaluation team in March. The standards focus on academic achievement, leadership, and excellence in personnel and resources and provide valuable feedback for us to continue on our path of continuous improvement.
The familiarity and comfort with Israeli culture the kids get every day through the Shlichim and Banot is amazing. Over winter break, we visited Israel and my son just started singing along to a popular radio song.
Innovative STEM education takes place every day—from exploring electromagnets and botball to the Museum of Science and Industry School Science Leadership Initiative—kids are engaging with sciencein exciting ways.
I feel like at HT there is a chance to be a big fish in a smaller pond. I can see and feel the difference I make in each child’s life. I am recognized by my colleagues, administrators, and families for my hard work.
Coming to Hillel Torah from outside the community, I wasn’t sure where I’d fit in. Every single staff member, administrator and family made me feel as part of the community as anyone. They all make you feel loved, appreciated, and welcome no matter what the situation. I love seeing my coworkers, I enjoy working for the administration, and I take pride in each and every child in this school. It’s a special place, to say the least.
