Living in the 21st century carries tremendous benefits for our students. With information at their fingertips from a young age, students have opportunities to learn, produce, and innovate like no other previous generation. This level of global exposure, however, also carries tremendous challenges and responsibilities. Our children communicate and socialize differently; lines between opinion and fact are easily blurred, and the messages and imagery are, many times, inconsistent with our traditional Torah values.
As a Modern Orthodox school, we are passionately focused on the religious, spiritual, academic, and social welfare of each student in our care. As educators, we can no longer just teach; we must ignite a flame, one that will spark our children’s intellectual curiosity, kindle their unique strengths, and bring light to their understanding and commitment to navigating their journeys as Torah-committed Jews.
That goal, to ignite a love of Torah and Hashem in our students that will ensure the future of the Jewish people, is the neshama, the soul, of our institution.
