Our non-judgmental, friendly and inclusive policy means every Jewish child is welcome, regardless of affiliation, religious observance, or prior knowledge. Our diverse student body provides a setting where each child is comfortable and able to learn at a relaxed pace.

Our Judaic studies curriculum is comprised of selected material culled from award winning educational programs such as ToraPedia, Jewish Lifecycles and Jewish Children International’s Lessons in Hebrew Holidays.

We strive to keep our curriculum diverse by covering the widest possible range of Jewish traditions, heritage, history and culture.

Tzedakah:

Tzedakah, (Charity) is a basic value in Judaism and one we try to develop in our students. We begin each day with prayers and the giving of charity. Please try to send some coins to school each Sunday to help encourage your child to perform this Mitzvah.

Language:

Our students become familiar with the Hebrew alphabet, learn to read, and become accustomed to Hebrew vocabulary. This subject also familiarizes our students with the Siddur- Prayer Book, allowing them to feel comfortable in the Synagogue.

Torah:

This subject offers an overview of the weekly Torah portion, its highlights and practical lessons relevant to our day and age.

History:

We take our students from Creation to modern-day Israel including the Exodus from Egypt, The Ten Commandments and the era of the Prophets and Kings. We also focus on Jewish life in medieval times, the Spanish Inquisition, the Holocaust and Jewish Heroes of Yesteryear.

Holidays:

Lessons on each Jewish holiday with hands-on demonstrations fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashana through the holiday of Shavuot.

 

 

Jewish Values:

Perhaps the most important component of a Jewish education is the understanding that our religion is based on a G‑d given set of values and ethics. Our students learn the Mitzvot and gain an appreciation for their relevance in the 21st century.

 

Arts and Crafts: 

We create projects that have Jewish holiday and mitzvah themes and will add an elegant taste of Jewish decor to your home.

 

 Israel:

Our students understand that Israel is not just another country but our own homeland. A land that is truly the “Promised Land”, both spiritually and physically.
