About Us


The H.E.S., located in Southeast Brooklyn, serves more than 1,200 people daily, which accounts for more than 300,000 annual visits. We are the area’s major source of educational, recreational, cultural, fitness, sports and social-service programs for area residents and we annually provide services to more than 8,500 participants.
The H.E.S. serves the diverse populations living in Southeast Brooklyn including Jewish and African- American families and a large population of immigrant families from the Caribbean, Asia, Israel, and the former Soviet Union.  The agency is a community resource hosting local community and civic groups.
Special populations have a place at the H.E.S., the agency operates an array of programs for developmentally disabled children and adults. There are several programs available for autistic children and their families. At the H.E.S. social services are always available.

The agency is the primary source of support for working parents and their children.  At the H.E.S. they would have access to much needed social services, childcare and recreational activities including a daycare program, after-school care, special needs programs, youth, and adult programs.  The agency’s largest programs are for children and teenagers.  Each year more than 800 preschoolers, children, and teenagers participate in H.E.S. programs and activities.

The H.E.S. is a safe haven for their children to learn, grow, have fun and fulfill their dreams.

The Hebrew Educational Society is funded (or funded in part) by a grant from Brooklyn Community Foundation’s Brooklyn COVID 19 Response initiative in partnership with the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

In addition to continued support from UJA Federation of NY, ROBIN HOOD, and The New York Community Trust.
