Our school stands on three pillars:

•    Jewish Identity

By instilling a connection to Jewish tradition, rituals, Torah, history, and Hebrew, we strengthen a student’s Jewish identity.

•    Jewish Community

By making the temple a second home and building lasting friendships through meaningful conversation, engaging activities, retreats, youth group, travel to Israel, music, and art, we strengthen a student’s place in Jewish Community.

•    Jewish Faith

By participating in the celebration of Shabbat and holidays, learning Jewish prayer and honest exploration of our faith, we strengthen a student’s sense of awe, wonder, and gratitude.
