The Shefa School has secured a new home at 17 West 60th Street! The 12-story building, which is located across from Columbus Circle and Central Park, exceeds our wildest expectations. This new home will allow us to sow the seeds for the next generation of Jewish learners and leaders by allowing us to increase our total capacity to nearly 350 students in a state-of-the-art facility. We plan to move in August 2024!

Open and spacious lobby

We will need support from all of you to turn this empty space into a school. The building has not been occupied for over 40 years, and we have now embarked on an ambitious project to renovate the 12 stories to build classrooms and break out spaces that meet our needs, a beit midrash for study and prayer, a large gym, a cafeteria, gathering spaces for programming and celebrations, a home for the Shefa Center, and an outdoor rooftop!
