The Judaic Studies High School curriculum deepens our students understanding and appreciation of our Jewish heritage. We explore our Jewish identity and what it means to each individual. Our pride and passion for our faith can be felt at every turn in our High School. The walls are covered in the words of our sages, and beautiful Judaic art, created by our students is displayed prominently. Our students lead by example, as they deliver Divrei Torah (words of Torah inspiration) to each other at assemblies and school functions. Beautiful notes of our liturgy can be heard filling the hallways coming from a variety of different prayer services.
We create an atmosphere in our High School Jewish community that is rich in diversity yet celebrates our similarities. The culture of the High School is a place where morally and ethically every segment of the Jewish community comes together to practice and grow in their understanding of the rich tapestry that comprises our Jewish diversity. We learn to appreciate both the sum, and the individual parts that make up the whole.
Our students engage in a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Our students know in their hearts they will be pushed to learn, grow, and question more than ever before. They will be studying from time-honored texts of tradition, Oral Torah and the evolution of Halacha (Jewish law), medieval Jewish history, Jewish philosophy, Zionism and Israel advocacy. Throughout the carefully planned four-year course of study, our students acquire the knowledge, and more importantly, the skills and passion needed to be life-long Jewish learners.
DKJA alumni become an integral part of their Jewish communities. They are leaders on college campuses and in synagogue life. Our students shine as examples of young women and men who deeply value the rich heritage from which they come, and who understand what is needed of the next generation of Jewish leadership to help secure our people's future.
