Hochberg Lower School Capital Campaign

To meet the educational and social needs of our growing student body, Hochberg Lower School has completed construction on its new home in Hallandale Beach. The new, state-of-the-art East Campus represents the fulfillment of the vision set for us by our founders–to build a lower school that will serve the South Florida Jewish community for generations. This dream has only become reality because of the strong and generous support of donors and community sponsors. You can help keep our founders’ vision going strong in the many years ahead by continuing your support of the Hochberg Lower School capital campaign.
