Head of School

Dr. Joshua Levisohn

“We Teach Kids”

Dr. Levisohn’s mantra for Jewish day schools places children at the center of everything that we do. Great teachers and great teaching focuses not on a subject (“I teach math…or Chumash”) but on the students in front of us.

Dr. Levisohn has honed his approach to schooling through more than two decades of experience as a teacher, principal and head of school. Before becoming our Head of School, he worked for two years as Lead Consultant in EduCannon Consulting and developer of the Prizmah Coaching Institute, following a twelve-year tenure as Head of School at Berman Hebrew Academy in the DC area. Prior to coming to Washington, Dr. Levisohn spent 8 years at Akiba Hebrew Academy (now Barrack Hebrew Academy) as a teacher and eventually as a principal, and three years teaching Jewish history at his alma mater, Maimonides School in Brookline, Mass.

Dr. Levisohn earned his BA and his PHD in Jewish Studies at Harvard University and spent two years studying at Yeshivat Sha’alvim. He and his wife, Lisi, have three children.
