In 1940, Rabbi Solomon Goldman of Anshe Emet Synagogue envisioned a progressive independent Jewish day school. Anshe Emet Day School opened on September 16, 1946,[4] with 31 students and a curriculum combining general education with Jewish values and culture, as well as Hebrew language. The school was renamed Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School in 1988.


"You Shall Teach Them Diligently" - ושננתם לבניך

The Bernard Zell is an independent Jewish Day School for the 21st century where academic purpose, collaborative learning and a deep commitment to humanity develop engaged, confident learners and compassionate leaders for a stronger, more vibrant community and world.


The school became a Blue Ribbon School in 1987–88.[5] Unusually, the school starts foreign language studies for students at age of 3.[6]
