The U.S. Department of Education has awarded a $4.91 million grant to Hebrew Public, the New York-based nonprofit that manages three English-Hebrew public charter schools in the city.

The five year grant will help Hebrew Public, which also works with six affiliate schools around the country, with funding to expand its Harlem and Brooklyn schools and to develop new schools in New York City.

Jon Rosenberg, president and CEO of Hebrew Public, said the grant will help the organization accomplish its mission of leading a growing movement of racially and economically diverse public charter schools that have a curricular focus on the study of Modern Hebrew and of the history and culture of Israel.
