Jewish customs, rituals, values and teachings contribute in a significant way to help ensure our students can succeed in the future. Understanding who you are, where you came from, what those have believed who came before you are important in the development of the mind and the soul. Interpreting our ancient literature fosters creativity, encourages a higher level of critical thinking, and bonds our students to their roots. The value-based Judaic curriculum cultivates positive behavior, a caring attitude towards others and a sense of community responsibility. Learning a foreign language, Hebrew, not only ensures that our students can participate in any synagogue in the world, but also promotes the acquisition of other foreign languages in the future. Secular studies at Temple Emanuel Academy Day School, combined with Judaic studies, provide our students with nourishment for the mind and the spirit, creating enthusiastic learners and kind souls.
