OUR VISION

Using a 21st-century approach to education, at Adath Hebrew Academy, we teach our students to become involved, committed, and engaged members of the Jewish community.

Our staff is devoted to engaging children in hands-on experiential learning, inspiring them to embrace their faith and Jewish heritage.

COVID 19 UPDATE

Our goal is to begin in-person classes on Day 1 (October 17th).  We are in ongoing contact with the shul’s Medical Advisory Committee, which includes Dr. Ronald Cohn, the President of the Hospital for Sick Children, to ensure that we are complying with all COVID protocols including those outlined by Toronto Public Health and the Province of Ontario.

We will continue to update our plans as schools begin to re-open and if remote learning is required, we know that we can easily pivot based on our experience last year.  However, our goal is to begin classes on an in-person basis if the status of COVID allows. Please check here for ongoing updates.

CURRICULUM GOALS

At A-HA, we are using an Experiential Learning and Spiral Curriculum approach that provides students with the opportunity to develop enhanced principles, concepts, skills, and understanding as they progress through each grade. Our curriculum goals include:

  • Educate our students in the spirit of Judaism – traditions, customs, circle of life and prepare them for their Bar/ Bat Mitzvah.
  • Make connections to our students’ real-world life experiences through teaching the stories of the Torah and its significance in creating the foundation of Jewish traditions and values.
  • Establish in our students a deep love for Judaism and connection to the Land of Israel.

Special Curriculum Features

    • Resource support
    • Music
    • Grade 3 – Siddur Ceremony
    • Grade 4-6 meetings with our clergy
    • Shabbat Morning Services and a special Family Services
    • Giving back to our community – volunteer opportunities

LEADERSHIP 

Under the guidance of Education Chair, Mr. Ashley Waltman (Former Principal of North Toronto Collegiate and Robbins Hebrew Academy), our incumbent principal, Dr. Jack Lipinsky, has led a strong team of educators through a progressive and evolving curriculum over the past five years.  Doc, as he is known in the Jewish Day School community, will be retiring in June.

We are very pleased to announce the hiring of our new principal, Ms. Avivit Yoffe.  Ms. Yoffe is the former principal of Beit Rayim Supplementary School, the GTA’s largest, and we are excited she will be able to join the current staff and students for the last two months of the school year in an observational role as she preps for October, 2021.
