formerly Abraham Kaufman-Nathan Bohrer Hebrew Academy of Morris County (HAMC)
The Gottesman RTW Academy (formerly the Abraham Kaufman-Nathan Bohrer Hebrew Academy of Morris Conty), founded in 1967, is a co-educational Jewish day school serving approximately 225 children in early childhood education through eighth grade. As a community day school, we serve families representing the entire spectrum of contemporary Jewish observance. HAMC was awarded Blue Ribbon School status in 2006.
HAMC’s interdisciplinary general studies curriculum consists of superior programs in language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, health, music, and art. We have a state- of- the-art computer lab and computers in every classroom, and our middle school students are kept “up to speed” with our wireless laptop lab. Our Judaic studies curriculum offers a solid foundation in Hebrew language, sacred text study (Torah, Prophets/Tanach), culture, history, traditions, and religious practices of the Jewish people. Students feel a bond with Israel through instruction on Israeli history, the celebration of Israeli holidays, involvement in Israel community-related projects, and weekly visits by Israeli students. These dual programs are supplemented by extracurricular activities including after-school athletics, clubs, and community service. Extended school days (before and aftercare) are also available.
The Hebrew Academy is located in Randolph, a young, vibrant suburban community of 25,000 ranked by Money Magazine in 2004 as one of the most desirable places to live in America. As the only community day school in northwestern New Jersey, our students hail from towns throughout Morris County, as well as neighboring Sussex, Warren, and Somerset counties. These lovely suburban communities have country flair, and many are well situated for easy commuting to New York City and other metropolitan destinations via train, bus, or car.
