Announcement by Chabad Lubavitch of Arizona

Building on the success of the Cheder Lubavitch elementary school in Phoenix, Arizona, we are excited to announce the opening of an all-new girls high school for the 2021-2022 (5782) school year.

The school opens under the guidance of Rabbi Zalman Levertov, head shliach in Arizona, a high school vaad including Shluchim Rabbi Yossi and Rivky Friedman, Cheder Arizona founders Yaakov and Rochel Welner, and led by principal Mrs. Risha Majesky.

The Beis Chana High School of Arizona’s mission is for our students to experience excitement in their Yiddishkeit and chassidishkeit and a desire to spread the wellsprings outward. With excellence in both Judaic and General studies, we will create a wholesome environment in which our students will grow spiritually and academically to achieve their full potential.  We will provide each of our students with the social, emotional, and academic tools she needs to internalize what she learns in the classroom and make the Torah relevant in her day to day life. We put a strong focus on facilitating a meaningful connection to the Rebbe’s path and instructions with an emphasis on love and respect among students and teachers. At Beis Chana of Arizona each student will be cherished and respected for who she is.

Renowned for her success as principal of Bnos Menachem girls’ school for 19 years, Mrs. Majeskys many graduates will attest to her success in bringing the teachings and philosophies of Torah-true, chassidishe Yiddishkeit to a level that becomes an integral part of each girl’s life.

Beis Chana of Arizona aims to be a place where students from all over the world can benefit from a warm and wholesome chassidishe education.

Our challenging Judaic studies curricula will prepare our students for seminary and beyond. With a focus on skill building and independent study, subjects will include Chumash, Navi, Tanya, Halacha and more.

Our full general studies department will meet state standards for a high school diploma and will include extracurricular courses as well.

With our talented young shluchos who will be joining our staff, Elisheva Dinnerman (San Diego, CA), Zeldy Eichorn (Brooklyn, NY), Chayale Levin (Brooklyn, NY), and Goldie Marasow (Montreal, Quebec), students will benefit from a full range of Bnos Chabad and Achos Hatemimim programs. Their activities will include farbrengens, after school trips and Shabbattons.

We will implement an innovative Mashpia system providing each student the opportunity to select a staff member of their choice to receive one on one guidance several times a month.

Most importantly, Beis Chana will provide caring, individualized attention to the academic, social and emotional needs of all students. The warm environment will foster personal and lasting connections with dedicated teachers and staff.

With few Chabad high schools with dormitory availability, Beis Chana’s dorm will enable high school girls from all over the world to experience a well rounded, chassidishe education in a warm and welcoming school environment.

Recognizing that dormitory life is a crucial part of a girls high school experience, BCAZ is investing a significant amount of time, energy and financial resources to create a perfect home away from home for our out of town students.

The dorm will be infused with a warm, caring and chassidishe ruach born of consistently positive activity overseen by capable, dedicated dorm counselors and a dorm mother.

There is limited space for out of town students, and applications have already begun to come in. Beis Chana will be accepting students for its school and dorm for 9th grade.
