Louisville Jewish Day School moves downtown, adopts Montessori style

The Louisville Jewish Day School is committed to provide the best Jewish and Secular education to children in our community, Rabbi Avrohom Litvin said. The best schools realize that classroom instruction can be greatly enhanced by allowing students to receive further educational benefits from cultural centers and institutions. So the school can take advantage of the many museums, parks and cultural opportunities offered by downtown Louisville, the Louisville Jewish Day School is moving there this fall.

The Louisville Jewish Day School remains the only accredited Jewish Day School in the State of Kentucky for Jewish children from preschool through the sixth grade. This year, the Day School will introduce Montessori-style teaching in both Hebrew and English classes as well as a new Environmental Science Program in the elementary grades. Judaic studies will be taught in a total Hebrew immersion program. A nutritious and healthy kosher lunch program especially geared to children’s needs is also provided.

Recently, Rabbi Avrohom Litvin met with Mayor Greg Fischer to discuss moving the school to the downtown area. Mayor Fischer was extremely pleased to hear of the school’s decision to relocate to a downtown location – the lower level of the Hertz Starks Building (formerly the site of the Colonnade Restaurant).

Transportation will be provided to and from the Jewish Community Center parking lot as an option for those children coming from the east end of the city.
