We instill in our students solid, time tested Torah values which are the cornerstone of the Judeo-Christian societies around the world and the basis of Western Civilization. Our students will not just imbibe their opinions and ideas, they will form them based on comprehensive study of ethics and morals.
From learning conversational modern Hebrew to interpreting Aramaic texts, our students will learn how to speak, write, and read Hebrew — the language that connects all the Jewish people.
In elementary school, our Judaic Studies program focuses on instilling a love of Torah and Eretz Yisroel by learning about Jewish history and culture. Our students will study Chumash (Bible) and Navi (Books of the Prophets), learn to pray and understand the meaning of the prayers, as well as develop their Hebrew conversation and writing skills through our total immersion classes.
In middle school, our students build on their understanding of mitzvos and deepen their appreciation for their Jewish heritage by conducting an in-depth analysis of Biblical texts including commentaries and Talmudic discussions.
At this stage our students will embark on thought-provoking and stimulating learning of the ethical and moral teachings of the Torah. Our students are encouraged to question and challenge in order to more clearly and fully understand not just the laws and the texts but the meaning and lessons behind them.
Our students learn to speak Hebrew fluently as part of their total immersion language classes. They also learn about Israeli culture and history, and develop a love for the land and the people of Israel.
The goal of Shalom Torah Academy is to provide the next generation of American Jews with an outstanding General Studies education complemented by an appreciation for Jewish Heritage and love of the Torah, the mitzvos, mankind, and the Land of Israel.
After completing their education at Shalom Torah, our students walk away with life-long skills and as better people — ready to take on the world.
What makes Shalom Torah Academy different from other schools is the warm, nurturing, and inclusive atmosphere as well as our caring staff. Schedule a private tour to experience firsthand what it is like to be part of our community!
