The Hebrew School times below are for "ACHS@Home" for our Fall Semester, from October 13th, 2020 through December 17, 2020.

If we are able to transition to in-person classes at any point in the Winter/Spring Semesters 2021, we intend to adjust some of the beginning and end times of classes, to more fully line up with previous years' Hebrew School schedules. We have intentionally shortened class times for our Virtual learning model, in order to reduce screen time at the end of our students' school days.

Please be in touch with Rabbi Yael at rabbiyael@anschechesed.org with any questions or concerns. We will do our best to accomodate all students virtually this Fall.

If application is received before the early bird deadline of September 10, 2020, type in the discount codes of EarlyBird1 for one child discount of $75 and EarlyBird2 for a two children discount of $150 on the next payment page. 

If the discount doesn't apply after typing in the code, please click an empty part of the screen outside of the text box, which should fix the issue.
