Tefillah (prayers) is an integral part of our everyday programming. In our approach to educating the whole child, tefillah helps our students grow spiritually, as they connect to the deeper meaning of various prayers, the world around them, and to each other.
Celebrating Jewish Holidays
The celebration of Jewish holidays is a key component to our program and enhances student life on campus. In addition to students learning about the meaning of the holidays and their traditions and customs during Hebrew and Judaics classes, they also participate in school-wide celebrations. We approach the teaching of Jewish holidays through the learning of text and experiential learning.
Every other week we have a school-wide family-style Shabbat Lunch where the student enjoy a Shabbat-style meal, while building a sense of community throughout the school, and celebrate and reflect on the past weeks’ accomplishments.
Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is intertwined in the teachings at THA. The students not only learn about Jewish values, they learn to how to use those values to guide them in their actions in order to make their community and the world a better place.
We provide many opportunities for our students to apply these values, whether it’s through giving Tzedakah or learning about community issues to raise awareness and come up with ways to take action.
