Connect with our community

We offer a few ways for prospective families to get a sense of what Senesh is all about:

  • Connect with a Senesh family. Our admissions team will introduce prospective families to current Senesh parents and/or faculty to speak about the Senesh experience.
  • Come to a community-wide event. Senesh hosts programs that are open to the public and are specifically geared toward Jewish families with young children.

Our commitment to diversity and belonging

As an open and inclusive Jewish day school in the heart of Brooklyn, we strive to provide an unparalleled, modern academic home that is committed to the rich diversity of Jewish life. Our core Jewish value of Openness/Elu v’Elu guides our work in building empathy, promoting tolerance, and valuing difference. We live this value daily at Senesh in our curriculum, programming, admissions, hiring, professional development, and dialogue with our broader community.

It is integral to our ongoing journey/Masa as a school to embrace the complex conversation of diversity in the 21st Century, which we believe will continue to make our school community even more vibrant and strong.


Tuition for the 2024-25 school year for kindergarten through eighth grade is $41,750.
Additional Fees

Materials and trip fees are additional, which includes the cost of books, classroom material, field trips, and overnight trips for Middle School students (to Washington, D.C., TEVA Nature Camp, and Israel). In 2024-25, additional fees are:

  • Kindergarten-4th grade: $550
  • 5th grade: $1600
  • 6th grade: $1850
  • 7th grade: $1950
  • 8th grade: $2600

Financial Aid

We believe all families seeking a Jewish day school education should have access to one, even if tuition is a barrier. We’re pleased to offer tuition assistance for K-8 students based on demonstrated need. Today, more than half of Senesh families receive some tuition assistance. The Financial Aid Committee makes decisions based on demonstrated need, the school’s commitment to diversity, and the availability of funds.

Financial aid deadlines:
  • Current Senesh families: December 2, 2024
  • New Senesh applicants: Early January 2025
  • We will continue taking applications for families who apply late as long as funds are available.

Lower School Grants for Jews of Color

As we build the rich mosaic of Jewish life, we’re striving to increase the representation of Jews of Color who have been underrepresented in our community and who would find a warm and welcoming Jewish home at Senesh. With this in mind, we’ve established a grant to enable more Jews of Color to attend our lower school.
