Judaic Studies

למודי קודש - Judaic Studies

Yavneh provides its students with a superior Limudei Kodesh program whose foundation is built upon Torah Sh’bichtav, Torah Sh’Baal Peh, Mitzvot, Middot, Ivrit, Eretz Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael.
 

In the Lower School our students are not merely analyzing text, but are learning a way of life. Hence, the primary goal of our program - in all grades - is to instill in our children a love of learning and a passion for Yiddishkeit.


In order to inspire lifetime learning, we not only provide our students with skill-building to develop competency and confidence, but we inject creativity and innovation into the classroom to make text and history come alive. Enthusiastic teachers provide a wide array of memorable experiences that enhance the learning experience of students in all grades.


The study of Torah actively involves students in the learning of the text, traditional commentaries and their ethical/moral lessons. The Navi curriculum familiarizes students with the texts of Neviim Rishonim, their universal messages, the political, economic and social issues that were prevalent during their lives and the impact of their prophecy.
