Here learning is active, engaging, meaningful.
We do more than memorize facts. We experience them. We go beyond what. We learn why. Through special art days, theatric puppet shows, music events, and other hands-on activities, our Jewish stories and history come to life.
Here we explore a range of subjects including mitzvot, history, Hebrew, and prayer. And because our approach welcomes diversity of thought in all subjects, students learn so much more. They learn to assess differing views. They learn to learn—to think for themselves.
Our students emerge with a deep understanding of Judaism—one that gives them the tools to develop their own individual beliefs and practices. They learn what it is to be part of a Jewish community.
