Our multi-faceted Judaic studies curriculum offers an in-depth examination of Jewish literature, history and culture. An emphasis on developing critical thinking and textual analytical skills complement the general studies curriculum.
As students study Jewish texts, they examine the difference between subjective and objective history. They analyze selections from Pirkei Avot, the ethical wisdom literature of the Talmud, Rashi, Maimonedes and others as they relate these ancient texts to their current world. Social justice and tzedakah continue to be emphasized at all grades.
The students also study the many forms of Judaism in America as well as the world's religions.
