The mission of the Beth Tzedec Congregational School is to
instil in the student a love of Jewish
living. By creating environments that allow for acquiring knowledge
and fostering commitment to Jewish life, the
school stimulates students to become active and contributing members of their
families, their grades, the Beth Tzedec and Toronto Jewish communities and the
entire Jewish people.
The Congregational School realizes its mission by:
- Helping the student acquire basic skills
necessary for taking part in Jewish religious life in the home and synagogue,
and encouraging the desire to increase and sharpen these skills in future
years, both as a teenager and an adult.
- Developing in the student and his/her family an
understanding of, and an active commitment to, the values of Tzedakah
and Gemilut Hasadim.
- Enabling the student to appreciate the
continuity of Jewish life through the study of Hebrew, prayer, customs and
holiday, Jewish texts, history and tradition.
- Encouraging and helping the student to develop a
commitment to the principle of “Klal Yisrael”, and to act upon that
commitment by building a life-long attachment to the State of Israel.
- Helping the student develop a sense of his/her
- Planting and nurturing the seed of life-long
- Encouraging the celebration of Shabbat,
festivals, and Jewish rituals.
