ADRABA

Jewish high school, reimagined.

At ADRABA, we have a single goal. We want to advance the next generation of literate Jews so we can all meaningfully engage with our history, traditions and values.

With teachers and cutting-edge technology, we reimagine a millennia-old approach to Jewish learning so we all can continue the Jewish conversation and lead it into the next century.

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.

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.

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.

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

Our Programs

Part-Time Program

Beginning October, 2020

Our Part-Time Program is designed for high-school-age students who want to pursue some 21st-century Jewish learning while attending their traditional schools full-time. 

CHOSEN FOOD begins at 3:45 pm and runs until 6 pm, Mondays and Thursdays in our VERY TTC accessible downtown location. 

In the course of this course, you’ll learn about what makes food kosher, which one dish is eaten by Jews the world over, why Jews ran most of the taverns in Poland and how hummus might bring peace to the Middle East.  And MUCH, MUCH MORE!

And, in the process, you’ll sharpen your kitchen skills and learn some good recipes with renown chefs and mavens from across the GTA!

Full-Time Learning

Beginning September, 2021

Our full-time learning track is designed for middle-school graduates who want to pursue an Ontario Secondary School Diploma with a cutting-edge and personalized approach.  In addition to tackling traditional subjects in a 21st-century style, learners will also experience Jewish learning like they’ve never experienced it before. 

Learning will begin at 10:00am and run throughout the day in our learning space.  If you’re curious about what a typical week of full-time learning looks like, click…
