The Louisville Jewish Day School has relocated to the historic Starks Building, 445 S 4th St. in the heart of downtown Louisville, adjacent to museums, the Center for the Arts, the main branch of the Louisville Public Library and many other cultural attractions.
On Tuesday, February 18, at 11 a.m., the Day School invites the entire community to attend the official ribbon cutting and open house of this new location. Mayor Greg Fischer will be the guest of honor to welcome the school to its new downtown location. A tour of the school will be offered and refreshments will be served.
The Louisville Jewish Day School offers kindergarten-6th grades with an emphasis on science, language arts and music, in addition to core math and social studies subjects. Hands on laboratory experiments and educational field trips complement the instructional portion of study.
The Judaic curriculum offers a Hebrew immersion program, as well as an in-depth program of textual study.
The Louisville Jewish Day School is accredited by the Non Public Commission on Education, and is a member school of Torah U’Mesorah – the National Society for Hebrew Day Schools.
The Louisville Jewish Day School first opened its doors as Gan Torah of Louisville – the Beverly Weisberg Preschool, in 1996. Gan Torah remains the only uniquely Jewish preschool in the state of Kentucky, offering a full Judaic curriculum alongside a full secular program. The preschool combines Montessori methods and innovative and time-tested programming to enable each child to reach his/her fullest potential. Students of Gan Torah, also located in the Starks Building, range in age from 18 months to pre-k.
Reservations are not required for attendance at the open house but would be appreciated. For more information contact Louisville Jewish Day School Principal Goldie Litvin at 459-1770.
