DKJA Jewish Values

Donna Klein Jewish Academy is a K-12 Jewish Community Day School providing an extraordinary Jewish education to students from diverse backgrounds.
  • DKJA is committed to each student knowing the history, traditions and values of the Jewish people, literate and conversant with our texts and ideas, and being deeply identified with Klal Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael.  We are dedicated to motivating our students to maintain a deep and passionate lifelong engagement with Jewish life.
  • Our diverse Jewish community strives to model the unity of the Jewish people.  We seek ways to learn from those who hold different views and practices while, at the same time, recognizing and creating a community that understands we are ultimately one people.
  • We are dedicated to the State of Israel, the Land of Israel and the People of Israel. Through classes, speakers, conversation and experiences, we instill in our students a love for Israel and recognition of its centrality in the past, present and future of the Jewish people.
  • Formal and experiential Jewish education are at the core of our Judaism at DKJA, sparking a fire within our students to appreciate and to build committed Jewish lives, expressing one’s identity through practice, and acts of kindness and leadership.
