Phoenix Hebrew Academy proudly emphasizes our people's unbreakable bond with our eternal homeland, the Land of Israel, and celebrates the miraculous nature of its rebirth in modern times. To foster a deep and personal love for Israel within its students, PHA takes a two-pronged approach. Firstly, our students begin to learn conversational Ivrit from the youngest ages of Early Childhood, and continue this study straight through graduation. Secondly, we provide Israeli programming to our students which encourages an appreciation for the IDF and its soldiers, a personal relationship with individual IDF soldiers, a clear understanding of the geography and topography of the land, the importance of standing as one with our Israeli brethren, and much more.
Additionally, our students join together with parents, grandparents, and friends for a very special Yom Ha'atzmaut celebration in our auditorium each year. Many of our students go on to spend at least a year of study in Israel, as well.
