A Day in the Life of Edah

Welcome to Edah, our learning village! Our day is divided into three parts: learning stations, group time (zman kvutzah), and circle time (ma’agal). We emphasize choice, support engagement, and empower children to be the masters of their own learning.

Testimonial Quotation Mark

My six-year-old son thrived at Edah. He is a lively boy with unique needs and the staff embraced his individuality and helped him happily adjust to being in the Edah community. They did so well with him that I shared their strategies with his elementary school. I have noticed over the school year, his increased level of enjoyment and enthusiasm for the Jewish holidays and I know I have Edah to thank!

Philosophy

We believe in learning through doing and supporting children to chart their own course. Our goal is to empower learners to think deeply, ask good questions, and make their own meaning from the content and experiences of the program. Edah staff are trained in Inquiry Based Learning, experiential education, Hebrew Through Movement, language immersion, and Nonviolent Communication.
