Our Judaic Studies program highlights the joy of Jewish learning and inspires a spiritual and meaningful connection. Our General Studies and Judaic Studies program are designed to instill a critically thoughtful engagement in learning through integrated units of study while providing the essential skills in the academic areas taught. The children are encouraged to ask questions, to investigate, and to come to their own conclusions with the guidance of our teachers. Our nurturing staff offer encouragement, support and challenge that is based on knowing every child.

Critical Inquiry Units
The children are using an inquiry based approach to explore 5-6 units per year integrating science, social studies and language arts in General Studies. In Judaic Studies, they are integrating the calendar cycle of Jewish events, Hebrew Language Arts and Bible Studies. Critical thinking questions guide the integration of units within a framework of thematic concepts and global education outcomes. Our curriculum is based on education research about the interconnected nature of knowledge. This means that learning is best acquired when connections can be made to previously acquired knowledge or to different areas of the curriculum; therefore, much of our teaching includes interdisciplinary units.
