About AHS

Our History

Associated Hebrew Schools has a rich history. From the school’s inception, Associated has charted a visionary path that has shaped the character of Jewish education in Toronto.

In 1907, the Simcoe Street Talmud Torah, under the leadership of Rabbi Jacob Gordon z”I, broke new ground. Modern Hebrew language was used to teach Judaic subjects. Secular courses were integrated to expand into a full-day school, and children from across the diverse Jewish community learned side-by-side.

110-Year Educational Mission

The result of our over 110-year educational mission is nothing less than spectacular. Associated’s three branches include two preschools, two elementary schools, and one middle school,  housed at two campuses: The Hurwich Education Centre (Bathurst and Finch) and The Posluns Education Centre (Bathurst and Neptune).

Pioneers, World Citizens, Pride For Israel

Our graduates include pioneers in medicine, noted authors, and historians. They are Jewish educators, media and entertainment personalities. They are accomplished in business and are changing the world through innovation.

Above all, they are citizens of the world with the grounding that comes from seeing the world through a Jewish lens and a fierce pride for Israel.
