Since 1956, Perelman Jewish Day School has provided students with a Jewish-values based education within the context of a rigorous academic program.
A Place for Everyone
Perelman Jewish Day School was founded in 1956 in a small room in the basement of Har Zion Temple in Philadelphia, with just 39 students enrolled.
Today, we’re known as Raymond and Ruth Perelman Jewish Day School. Over the last 6 decades, we’ve expanded to serve over 350 students in two centers located on beautiful campuses in Wynnewood and Melrose Park. We are accredited by the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools (PAIS), a member of the Association of Delaware Valley Independent Schools (ADVIS) and Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools.
Our mission is to provide students with a Jewish-values based education within the context of a rigorous academic program. The goal of our school is to develop confident, accomplished and compassionate graduates who have a sound understanding of their history and culture as both Americans and Jews.
Our school serves students from all types of families and socio-economic backgrounds. We are a diverse and caring community, where every student has a special place. We’d love to learn about your unique child.
