Cheder Chabad's Mission Statement

Cheder Chabad of Monsey is a growing, vibrant educational facility that meets the Limudei Kodesh and General Studies needs of each individual child.  Established in 1999 by Rabbi & Mrs. Shusterman, our mission has been to lay the necessary and proper foundation and training of today’s children to meet the challenges of the future, by forging links between our traditional and uncompromising Jewish values and the world around us.

The uniqueness of our school is the fervor and flavor of Chabad Chassidus, as inspired by the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, with particular emphasis on ahavas yisroel, and serving Hashem with simcha, interjected into all aspects of the school program!  

Our classes allow our staff to share their passion and dedication to Jewish life and learning, thereby creating an atmosphere of excitement and stimulation, while instilling a love of learning in our talmidim and talmidos

Our Limudei Kodesh Program includes the highest level of (Hebrew/Yiddish/English) learning in Chumash, Novi, Halacha, Tanya, Parshas HaShavuah, Yomim Tovim, Chassidus, tales of Tzadikim, Nigunim, Talmud, Mishnah and more.  

Our General Studies curriculum interweaves Torah values into its program creating an integrated tapestry of an up-to-date secular knowledge and an authentically Jewish worldview.  Above all, we are dedicated to educating the shluchim of tomorrow…today.

Our school is affiliated with the Board of Education of New York State. Our Universal Pre-Kindergarten program is supervised by Childcare Resources of Rockland.  The East Ramapo Central School District (ERCSD) administers the Federal Title I-V programs that fund many of the special services we receive:  Bus Transportation; School Nurse; Tutor/ Mentor Program; ESL Tutoring; Psychologist; Speech Therapist; Resource Room, etc.
