Welcome to the Jewish Day School of the Lehigh Valley, serving Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and surrounding areas. Here, learning is a life-long journey embarked upon in partnership with family, school and community: therefore, everyone with whom a student interacts serves as a guide to help negotiate the path to success. We take pride in enfolding our children in the joy of life-long learning.


JDS' philosophy and priorities remain the same as always, even in this challenging world. 


  • We prioritize the health and safety of our students, teachers, and families. 
  • We prioritize our students' academic learning. 
  • We prioritize our faculty's capability to teach with creativity and best practices in pedagogy.
  • We prioritize the social, emotional, and spiritual well-being of our students, teachers and families.



In a novel situation characterized by uncertainty and risk, we have the courage to make challenging decisions guided by a steadfast commitment to our mission.


Our size is our superpower, our dedicated teachers are our heroes.

"I’ve been so impressed with the energy, organization, and concern of every JDS teacher working with our kids. The connection and the care, plus the academic rigor have made a very difficult situation so much more bearable for all of us." - Dr. Eric Fleisch, 1st and 3rd grade parent


"My teachers have inspired me in so many ways, especially since we have started at home learning. They are always prepared to explain something again, meet for one-on-one help, and even talk about non-school related issues. My teachers encourage me to try my best no matter what." - Mikaela Garber, 8th grade student


"The JDS is amazing. After a few changes in our lives the JDS is still thriving. The teachers make the online school experience incredible, informative, and worthwhile. They do anything to make us feel like we are really with them. They customize their schedules for us and make one-on-one meetings. How lucky are we!" -Emma Wiener, 6th grade student


"To be surrounded by such dedicated professionals, whose desire to bring normalcy and routine to our current situation, and do so with a smile, with humor, and with love is truly a blessing. To our teachers -- our role models, our friends -- we thank you for all that you do." -Amy Golding, Head of School
