Shalom and welcome to The Leonard and Syril Rubin Nursery School and Kindergarten.

The Leonard and Syril Rubin Nursery School at the JCC is a Jewish, developmentally appropriate, Nursery School and Kindergarten, where “hands on” is the order of the day. We are fortunate to have highly qualified, experienced staff of teachers whose warmth, nurturing and exciting programming skills provide a wonderful Nursery School and Kindergarten experience. Here your child can blossom, grow and fulfill his or her full potential in a secure and loving environment. One of the foremost teachers of our tradition, Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, wrote on the subject of education: “The home can do little without the school, but the school can do nothing without the home. Alas if they do not go hand and hand”. We know that children thrive when there is a close partnership between the home and the school and parent participation plays an important aspect of our school experience.

We welcome the opportunity to get to know you and your children and to help you nurture them, teach them, and share in their growth. To find out more about our school or to schedule a tour, please contact Johanna Sohinki, Director, at or 201.408.1430, or Elissa Yurowitz, Early Childhood Administrator, at or 201.408.1436.
