Educational Philosophy

The Talmud states that the world stands on three things; Torah (study), Avoda (worship) and G’milut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness). These are the three pillars of our approach to Jewish education. ATJC religious school is the beginning of your child’s lifelong journey of Jewish learning. Our creative and exciting program inspires our students to connect with and develop their Jewish identity. Our students are part of a community of Jewish learners that will grow up together to discover traditions, core values and celebrate Jewish life. We inspire our students to ask questions about Judaism and seek answers continually as they grow.

Curriculum:

Our curriculum is designed to help our students build an individual connection to:

• Jewish heritage, holidays, traditions and rituals

• The love and appreciation for the state of Israel

• A positive attitude toward prayer by learning specific blessings

• The importance of Mitzvot and Jewish values

• The history of the Jewish people through the study of the Torah

• Hebrew as a language and culture with an emphasis on reading for prayer

Family Education

We believe when parents demonstrate the importance of Judaism in their own lives, their child reacts by embracing Jewish learning and values. The ATJC religious school offers numerous opportunities for families to take part together in Jewish learning.

These programs provide engaging, enriching experiences that enable parents to strengthen the Jewish identity of their families while becoming Jewish teachers and role models for their own children. The value of time spent together when child and parent take part in educational programs side by side is immeasurable. We invite you to participate in our family education programs

that will surely create wonderful Jewish memories.
