"Inspiring each student to be a life-long learner, Solomon Schechter Day School of Essex and Union – a Conservative Jewish day school – guides each student to achieve his or her unique intellectual, creative and social potential. We nurture every student to be a proud and motivated American Jew, true to the traditions and values that will drive an enduring worldview and purpose in living a life of meaning. A well-rounded environment and academic excellence encourage our students to be intellectually curious, analytical and independent thinkers; to contribute to the advancement of the arts and sciences; and to serve proudly as citizens and leaders of their communities. We are building a modern kehillah – an exciting, responsive and ethical community. We teach our students to live joyously as knowledgeable Jews, committed to a personal relationship with God within rigorous study of texts, Hebrew literacy, observing mitzvoth and a love of Israel.
