In Judaic Studies, we not only focus on providing knowledge and understanding, but also, on the students’ commitment to Judaic values. Jewish life is taught and experienced in school through holiday observances, Israel education, Torah studies, life cycle events and customs, as well as prayers. It is this connection between our Jewish heritage and our daily activities in school that helps foster a sense of Jewish identity in our students.
For Hebrew Language Arts, we have adopted the TalAM curriculum. This methodology is based on the principles of communicative-heritage language acquisition. Students learn the Hebrew language as they are immersed in multi-sensory activities that help facilitate language learning.
