About Our Community

LIHA is Yeshiva day school starting at grades Toddler through grade 5 situated in the heart of Great Neck. LIHA is home to one of the largest Jewish Persian communities in the world. Students that  attend LIHA are from various sephardic backgrounds including Persian, Israeli, Ashkenazi, Buchari plus more. LIHA’s community  reflects the diversity of the Jewish Sephardic strong heritage. Students in LIHA share a love of their rich Sephardic identity and heritage while respecting each other of their differences. We celebrate the richness of our tradition while experiencing it first hand in school by encouraging inquiry and self-expression. We expect our students to grow in their general and Judaic studies as well as their understanding of Judaism.
