At the heart of our educational approach is a perpetual dialogue of three voices: the child, their world, and Judaism, rooted in dignity for every living being.
The perpetual dialogue with its core of dignity for all is a framework a Jewish person can live throughout their life. It is a dynamic Judaism in which a child experiences the power of their own voice to influence the world around them. Because the way children learn is what they learn.
All of this is the essence of the child’s Jewish learning, held in an infinitely repeating pattern. Every conversation, every exploration, every hour, afternoon, season, and year of learning, is electrified by this same perpetual dialogue with its roots of dignity for all. No matter the scale, the essence remains constant.
All three voices are dynamic; they move, they grow. The voices influence one another, as they are influenced by each other: child, world, and Judaism inextricably linked in their growth and a framework that recognizes the inherent worth of every human across the globe.
There is no “wait until you’re older.” The child lives as a full human, with an essential voice in Judaism and the world, in their present capacities and world. It is the same perpetual dialogue at age three and seven and fifteen, even as the content shifts; it holds the individuality of the child and the turning of the world. No matter how the child grows, where they go, or what their world holds, the perpetual dialogue flexes for new meaning.
