Founded in 1941 by the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Joseph I. Schneerson, and led by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, Beth Rivkah was the world’s first Chassidic girls’ school. Today, Beth Rivkah is home to over 2,000 students enrolled in our preschool through post-high school programs, and our alumnae number in the thousands.
We pride ourselves in being the premier community school for girls in Crown Heights. Our students come from all walks of life, and we serve as a sort of microcosm of Lubavitch today.
Our alumni have gone on to spread the warmth of yiddishkeit to all four corners of the globe. Beth Rivkah graduates proudly bear the torch of Torah and Mitzvot - first nurtured for them within these walls - and for many, their daughters now continue in their footsteps, traveling from far and wide to receive a Beth Rivkah education.
Beth Rivkah is committed to our community. We are proud to bear the title of ‘the Rebbe’s school’, and we work hard every day to realize the goals that he set out for us.
This is our Beth Rivkah. Not just a school, but a community. A home.
