ADRABA is ONLINE
We’ve designed our courses to be engaging and different – and take full advantage of ZOOM, Google apps as well as third-party applications.
You’ve never experienced this kind of Jewish learning before!
Each course costs $613. You’ll receive a tax receipt for a portion of the amount.
In 2021-2022, each course will meet twice a week.
Courses begin in October 2021 and will conclude in the first week of June.
All civic and Jewish holidays are off!
Are you into history, food or philosophy?
Canadian History Since World War 1 (CHC2D)
Canadian History Since World War 1 (CHC2D) explores Canada’s history since 1914. We’ll explore how Canada became what it is today through the stories and events often overlooked by traditional history courses.
Jews came to Turtle Island as immigrants and, in many instances, saw sports as a way to feel more Canadian.
As we delve into these stories, we’ll explore how social, economic, political changes impacted the lives and identities of all Canadians.
World Religions and Belief Traditions: Perspectives, Issues and Challenges (HRT3M)
World Religions and Belief Traditions will introduce learners to a period in history where rabbinic Judaism, Christianity and Islam emerged to take their place on the world stage.
You’ll learn how each religion sought to answer big questions about the human experience while spreading their beliefs across the world, building global empires and waging many wars in the process.
Chosen Food (IDC4U)
Chosen Food is an interdisciplinary course open to any high school student who has already earned a “U” credit OR loves food and cooking OR BOTH!
You’ll learn about what makes food kosher, which one dish is eaten by Jews the world over and how hummus could bring peace to the Middle East – and MUCH MORE.
In the process, you’ll sharpen your critical thinking (and kitchen) skills and learn to prepare delicious dishes with experts and mavens from across the GTA!
Philosophy: Questions and Theories (HZT4U)
Philosophy: Questions and Theories is for big thinkers and folks who like to debate. Learners must have already earned a “U” credit to participate.
You’ll acquire an understanding of the nature of philosophy and how to use reason to better understand the world. You’ll also learn how to craft better arguments as you unpack the thinking of great minds like Plato, Aristotle, Maimonides, Descartes, Spinoza, Kant, Buber, Butler and the writers of The Good Place.

At adraba we have a single goal.
We want you to have the most amazing, relevant Jewish learning experience possible. Because, let’s be honest, the typical Jewish learning experience hasn’t been the most amazing or relevant.
Let’s learn about our histories, values and traditions together – and have some fun in the process!
ADRABA offers 21st century learning using a combination of teacher and technology. We designed and built our school to ensure success for every type of learner. But not only do we want to engage your child as a learner, we want to inspire them to new levels of Jewish literacy and involvement in our community. Together, we can secure the Jewish future.
