Founded by Rabbi Shendelman, Jewish Arts, Culture and Torah School has been in existence for 17 years, serving the affiliated and non-affiliated community. Established previous to the birth of the associated Chochmat HaLev, JACTS and Chochmat create a new opportunity for exciting and joyful Jewish education in a collaborative effort engaging families with their children throughout the cycle of holidays and life changes.
Jewish Art, Culture and Torah School promises to be an exciting and joyful exploration of Judaism both for children and their parents. JACTS is committed to fostering a community of young people (and parents) who feel love for Torah and learn to access Torah to open their hearts and lead spiritually deep and settled lives.
Throughout their studies, students are exposed to a range of different approaches currently existing within Judaism allowing them to feel comfortable in a variety of Jewish settings. Teachers use art, music, puppets, drama, discussion and text to help students form a loving attachment to Jewish culture, community, spirituality and history. In addition, the importance of family culture cannot be underestimated in the ongoing education of our children.
