As a secular school, our curriculum emphasizes historical and cultural approaches to the study of Judaism.  An examination of religious perspectives is included, but we do not prescribe religious interpretations or practices for our children and prayers are not taught.  The weekly program includes the study of our traditions, history, literature (including bible stories) with a focus on struggles for civil rights and social justice as well as music, folk dancing, drama, art and Hebrew.  Students develop a strong Jewish identity, learn the meaning, spirit and joy of the Jewish holidays and explore what it means to live a moral and ethical life—to be a mensch.  We have a strong emphasis on Tikkun Olam, Hebrew for “repairing the world.”
