JUDAIC PROGRAMMING AT JLA ____________________________________________
 
JLA is committed to accepting mission-appropriate students who seek to grow in their understanding of and appreciation for Judaism, irrespective of any prior experience with Jewish learning and irrespective of their or their family’s personal level of observance. On campus and at all school functions, Jewish life and learning will be conducted in accordance with Modern Orthodox standards and perspectives.
 
In order to bolster JLA students’ understanding of both the Jewish present and past, and in order to imbue them with a strong sense of connection to the State of Israel, all students in grades 9-12 will spend 3.5 weeks of every school year in Israel— in an immersive Judaic experience that will focus on Tanach, Jewish History, Contemporary Israel, and Ulpan.
 
In addition, all JLA students spend two hours per week in our Service Entrepreneurship Program
which is designed to bring the values of chesed and or la-goyim to life.
 
Student programming includes a weekly experiential program called “soul center” where students gain an understanding of the weekly parsha, current Jewish calendar events and chagim. Students engage in hands-on programs, discussions, chabura learning, mock trials and more.
