ADRABA Insights

Testimonials

I am intrigued by their vision and impressed with their passion for an exciting new model for secondary Jewish education in Toronto. It’s comforting knowing that dedicated educators are working hard to safeguard the Jewish education of the next generation of Canadian Jewish students.

Liz Pearl, MEd

Founder, PK Press, Educator and Facilitator

ADRABA is a fresh bit of creative innovation in the world of Jewish education, a 21st century revolution in the way that teachers, students, and subject matter come together — so very different from the classrooms we all attended as students and teachers. ADRABA plans to utilize the best of blended learning techniques to promote Jewish literacy and engagement. I could not be more excited about this new learning option.

Dr. Seymour Epstein

Educator and Former Director of Toronto’s Board of Jewish Education @ UJA Federation

The Jewish Community needs educational offerings to serve all of the various needs of our students, regardless of learning style, family background, or denominational affiliation.  ADRABA’s blended-learning philosophy offers exactly that. In this environment, students can learn at their own pace, and receive a comprehensive, in-depth Jewish education that honours all members of our community. Toronto needs ADRABA. 

Cantor Cheryl Wunch

Educator and Spiritual Leader

ADRABA represents one of the most innovative, creative and cutting-edge approaches to 21st century Jewish education.

Dr. Chaim Y. Botwinick

Principal, Organizational Consultant and Executive Coach

I felt that the learning that took place at ADRABA was not only diverse content and delivery but the entire experience of doing the course with other Jewish students collaboratively and having guest speakers whose lives we learned about made the entire experience feel … well, like an experience.

ADRABA student (2020-2021)

I think ADRABA is a fantastic program that I would recommend to any friend. It not only gives you a smaller class learning environment where you can ask questions to fully reach your potential, it also connects you with your Jewish heritage and culture, by putting the curriculum through a Jewish lens.

ADRABA student (2023-2024)

The [Media Studies] course could not had come at a better time. With the events of Oct 7, the course was very relevant and allowed us to have good discussion with [my teen] about current events, media representations and bias regarding the conflict.

ADRABA parent (2023-2024)

[My teen] has always preferred sciences. This is the first time she has enjoyed a social science course enough to share knowledge with her family.

ADRABA parent (2023-2024)

[My teen] surprised me that he enjoyed learning to the point where he asked to learn how to read and write in Hebrew.

ADRABA parent (2023-2024)

After moving from Israel to Canada many years ago, this course was very well prepared, insightful and useful to understand history and [my teen]’s Jewish identity.
