Kodesh (Jewish Studies)

In everything you do you encounter sparks full of life and light, aspiring to rise toward the heights. You help them and they help you.


Jewish Education (Kodesh) at JCAT is as much about creating meaningful learning experiences and enduring memories through moments of joy, celebration and commemoration, as it is about imparting age-appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding relating to events throughout the Jewish Calendar.

Jewish Practice is a key focus at the JCAT schools and the school day begins with Tefillah (communal prayer). Alongside the recitation of prayer, pupils are given the opportunity for self-reflection, mindfulness and spiritual development. Blessings before and after eating encourage pupils to consider topics such as gratitude, appreciation and sustainability.

At JCAT the school year beats to the rhythm of the Jewish calendar. Through Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Chanukah, Purim, Pesach, Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron, Yom Haatzmaut, Lag Ba’omer and Shavuot, children, parents and staff gather together to experience the richness of Jewish life. Students learn the importance of rituals, and the meaning of Jewish holidays and then experience first-hand the joy of celebrating with their school community.

Parents are invited to help mark other significant Jewish milestones throughout their children’s time in school such as, Kaballat Shabbat, Chagigat Ha’Siddur, Chagigat Ha’Chumash and leavers Siyum. These events showcase our aim of helping each JCAT pupil to develop their own connection to Hashem and a sense of Jewish pride.
