About JVA

Jewish Values Academy (JVA) (noun): a fun and meaningful Hebrew school for Jewish children in NDG: JVA was awesome this week! 

When, Where, Who?

For Jewish children, aged 5 - 10 years old. 

We meet on Sunday mornings from 10:00 am - 12:15 pm during the academic year (2017-18). First class for Fall 2017 will be the Sunday after Labour Day.

JVA Hebrew School will meet at a temporary location in NDG, until our new education room is ready at the new Chabad House, 6058 Sherbrooke W! (Sometime in Sept/Oct)

JVA is directed by Rabbi "Yosh" Berkowicz , who is completing an M. Ed. in Educational Psychology.

Teaching is led by Chani Berkowicz , an experienced educator of children and a graduate of Beis Chaya Mushka Seminary of Montreal's Early Childhood Education program.


Tuition is set at an affordable 375$ / year per child. Sibling discounts are available: the second sibling receives a discount of $75. We also offer discounts for referring new students.

Our policy is to never turn anyone away due to a lack of funds.
