Hillel Day School to Unveil $5M Renovation


FARMINGTON HILLS — Hillel Day School of Metro Detroit next week will unveil its $5 million renovation to the school that will provide its students with new science and art labs, audio/video studios, a greenhouse, and a special designated area for students to utilize the latest technologies for various projects.

Hillel, an independent early childhood-through-8th-grade community Jewish day school, will host a grand opening ceremony for the community at the Audrey and William Farber Family IDEA Collaborative at 7 p.m. Aug. 27.

The IDEA Collaborative is the latest in a series of renovations to provide the school with state-of-the-art technology that has been implemented over recent years. Steve Freedman, who heads the school, calls the IDEA Collaborative “the achievement of our dream.”

“It is a testament to the confidence our partners have in the mission and vision of Hillel Day School and its critical role in ensuring a vibrant future of the Jewish community,” Freedman says.

Funding for the IDEA Collaborative was made possible by a gift of the Farber family to the Centennial Fund and the Jewish Federation of Metro Detroit’s fund.

Entering its 56th year, Hillel Day School of Metro Detroit at 32200 Middle Belt Rd. in Farmington Hills. For more information on the school and the IDEA Collaborative, visit HillelDay.org.
