At the Hebrew Academy of Tidewater Konikoff Center of Learning and Strelitz Early Childhood Center preschool you’ll find a warm, spirited and cutting edge academic community that welcomes students and families from all Jewish backgrounds. Serving preschool through fifth grade, we are conveniently located on the beautiful 22-acre Sandler Family Campus of the Tidewater Jewish Community, near Town Center in Virginia Beach. We are accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and are under the direction of Rabbi Mordechai Wecker, who holds nearly 30 years of experience in the academic world.
For nearly 60 years, the strengths of our traditions, outstanding dual curriculum and dedicated faculty are just part of what has defined our school’s continued success here in Hampton Roads. Our success is also demonstrated by who our students become by the time they graduate. They are confident, prepared, bright and have a rich and secure Jewish identity resulting from the spirit and ethics that they are infused with throughout their years here. Our rigorous educational programs shape the moral fiber and values of our children who depend on these midot (character traits) for a lifetime.
