Meet Our Principal

Ilanit Hoory
Lower School Principal

Shalom and welcome to the Lower School at Schechter Westchester. My name is Ilanit Hoory (Morah Ilanit) and I am delighted to lead the Lower School this year in the role of principal. I believe that our school provides an ideal setting for students to develop as individuals with a lifelong passion for learning.

At the Lower School, we strive to maintain a warm and nurturing learning environment, while providing each child with a challenging, well-supported instructional program infused with Jewish values. A strong home-school partnership is vital to each child's development and I encourage parent collaboration in all that we do. Every member of the Lower School faculty and staff is invested in our students reaching their greatest potential and becoming the best they can be socially, emotionally, and academically.

A walk through the halls of the Lower School provides a view of children happily engaged in learning. The classrooms and corridors are alive with joyful learning, studying, singing, praying, and playing. Although great deal can be learned about us from our website, we hope you will schedule visit in person to experience the spirit of our faculty and students.

These words by Rabbi Yishmael, which reflect the essence of our mission, are found in Pirkei Avot. They advise us to lead lives filled with learning, teaching, preservation of our heritage, and social action.
