Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy (Hebrew: יְשִׁיבָה קְטַנָּה הִלֵּל‎) is a private Orthodox Jewish Day school in Beverly Hills, California. It consists of an early childhood department, an elementary division (Grades 1-5) and a middle school division (Grades 6-8).


In 1948, the school was founded by Rabbi Dr. Simon A. Dolgin as part of Beth Jacob Congregation and began with an enrollment of 37 students. In 1961, Rabbi Menachem Gottesman assumed the leadership of the school, which was located at that time in the basement of Beth Jacob. In 1964, the school moved to its current location one block from Beth Jacob.[2] By 1988, the school had expanded its campus to include its original building and the adjacent property.
