A joyous parade of students and faculty celebrated the arrival of a Torah scroll to the Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy–Upper School in Stamford school last month. The scroll was brought over to the Upper School’s new home on Bi-Cultural’s main campus on High Ridge Road from the Upper School’s previous location on West Main Street. “We want our connection to Torah to be joyful, and at Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy we are committed to building our students’ positive connections to our heritage, history and Torah,” said Rabbi Shimmy Trencher, principal of Bi-Cultural’s Upper School.
The Upper School relocated to the High Ridge Road campus in September, following the fall 2018 merger of Bi-Cultural Day School with the Jewish High School of Connecticut that created Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy.
