JUDAIC STUDIES

academics_judaicacademics_judaic_2From Hebrew to holidays, Torah to Tefillah, our school provides a rich real-time Jewish experience for every student. Whether exploring culture and tradition, learning about Israel and Jewish history, or developing a personal relationship with God, our students develop a deep understanding of what it means to be a Jew.

Ultimately, however, Judaism is not just about religious practices or even Jewish history. At Adat, it’s about Jewish living: the active integration of personal ethics, moral behavior, manners, family relationships, and social responsibilities into our students’ day-to-day lives.
