Our Head of School

Welcome from Dr. Marc Lindner, Head of School

Welcome to Sinai Akiba Academy! We are the premier Jewish day school in Los Angeles for toddlers through 8th grade. As the first non-orthodox Jewish day school on the West Coast, we have been empowering Jewish children and teens to successfully engage with school and community for over 50 years. Sinai Akiba is a place where Jewish children are well-prepared for their next steps in schooling, where they develop ethical and moral vision, and their Jewish identities blossom. 

Jewish values are paramount at our school each and every day along with our exceptional program. Academic content and skills in general studies, Judaic studies, and Hebrew language are taught in a loving, close-knit environment. As research has shown, student learning is maximized when students trust their teachers. In our school that trust comes from daily care and concern from teachers for their students. These are hallmarks of the Sinai Akiba experience.

In addition to developing their critical thinking skills and as compassionate and ethical members of their community, students at Sinai Akiba come to understand that they are links in a chain connecting to our past and building the future. Our core values guide our students throughout their time at Sinai Akiba including Ahavat Yisrael (love for Israel). From the time they start in our ECC culminating in the 8th grade trip to Israel, students come to value the importance of Israel for the Jewish people and our history. 

Discover for yourself what makes Sinai Akiba Academy students and alumni compassionate, engaged, and thoughtful leaders of tomorrow. 

B’Shalom (in peace),
