Jewish Learning at Kadima
Educational programming at Kadima offers opportunities for community members to engage in a journey of learning and personal growth. Members of all ages are challenged to think, question, and contribute creatively to our common journey.
Kadima School is for young people ages 0-18 and the adults who love them. We support young Jews and emerging Jewish adults to lead proud, self-determined, informed Jewish lives. Our educational model is grounded in (but not anchored to) tradition and history while incorporating lessons and pedagogy from the movements of today to co-create a beautiful future together.
Kadima School empowers individuals to be the Jewish leaders in their own lives and households. Part and parcel of our Kadima Shabbat Morning program, Kadima School is where our young people learn, develop, and create community while our community of adults engages in spiritual practice, learning, and empowerment activities to become the primary leaders, facilitators, and decision makers in their households and the Kadima community.
Our fabulous faculty has experience in a variety of methods and theories including, but not limited to, Constructivism, Experiential Education, Anti-Racist Organizing, Reggio Emilia Approach, Project-Based Education, Jewish Life and Learning Approach, Anti-bias Curriculum, Playback Theater, Democratic Classrooms and Social Contract Theory. Our skilled and devoted teachers work collaboratively to model the community building and lifelong learning we value our students incorporating into their lives.
Together, we meet at a co-created nexus of reality, hope, and healing, to provide tools for today's change-makers and tomorrow's new-community builders.
