The Broward County Judaica High School program brings teens, 8th-12th grade, from all over the county, affiliated and unaffiliated, together to study, socialize and share meaningful Jewish learning experiences together. Our teachers are of the highest caliber, and utilize technology along with contemporary, interactive teaching methods to engage the students as active participants in the learning process. Judaica High teens meet once a week on Tuesday evenings – consult our calendar for the times.
Our curriculum, based on a 4-year program of study, leads to graduation from the Judaica High School. We offer courses in seven major areas of study – TANACH (Bible), Tefillot (Prayer), Mitzvot/Ethics, The Rhythms of Jewish Life, Israel, Jewish Art and Culture, and History.
One of our many goals at Judaica High, is to effectively teach our teens Jewish values and mitzvot. These lessons are taught in the classroom as well as in real-life community based social action opportunities. This helps ensure they don’t just learn Judaism, but live Judaism. In addition to the course curriculum, students will also participate in holiday observance programs as they occur throughout the calendar year.
