Mission and Goals

The Downtown Jewish Community School aims to provide a basis for Jewish identity in a pluralistic community. Students are taught the concepts and skills necessary to live a Jewish life and to feel comfortable within a Jewish setting. Traditional Jewish concepts and practices are presented with explanations and alternatives -- indicating that there are many ways to be a Jew. We believe that our school must respect and accept individual differences, placing equal emphasis on all aspects of personal growth.

“During her seven years at DJCS my daughter has developed a strong Jewish identity, an extensive knowledge of Jewish history and a love for Israel. We are an inter-racial family and DJCS provides a pluralistic and supportive learning environment that fosters a sense of inclusion for all its students. The teachers challenge the kids and keep the parents involved in learning. I know that the years my child spends in the Jewish studies and Hebrew programs are helping to create a solid ethical foundation for her as a member of the Jewish community.”
