THE HEART OF OUR SCHOOL
CMCH is a progressive Jewish Montessori school serving elementary through middle school children. We welcome every Jewish child, regardless of background or affiliation, with the understanding that each is a unique blessing to our community and essential to our world. The teachers of both the general and Judaic studies will work as a team to assist each child in discovering his true potential. This process, beginning at an early age, will point the child toward the Torah-given goal of improving himself and his environment in order to reveal the G-dliness hidden within our world.
Our pedagogical philosophy is rooted in a profound love and respect for each child. At CMCH, your child will learn to think, observe, and reflect – not memorize and quickly forget. Instead of giving him the right answers, we will ask the right questions, and lead him to discover answers for himself. Learning will become its own reward, and each success will fuel his desire to discover something new.
His ultimate discovery will be his true potential as a human being and as a Jew.
Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson
The Chaya Mushka Children’s House is named after Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, of blessed memory, who was the wife of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, and the daughter of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson. In naming our school after her, we are constantly inspired to permeate our little microcosm with the love and acceptance of every Jew which she and the Rebbe displayed on a worldwide basis.
Vision of CMCH
CMCH educates and inspires students to become knowledgeable and proud members of the Jewish community with a commitment to Tikun Olam. Students will be engaged in their learning and thereby become lifelong learners with a devotion to Hashem, the Torah and Am Yirael. Our students will graduate with enduring Jewish identity and values, with a strong moral conscience driving them to make good choices, and in so doing become leaders in our vibrant Jewish community for generations to come.
