ADRABA‘s newest Part-Time Program for high school students
will do much more than provide an excellent, innovative Jewish learning experience.
You'll learn to think.
We are blessed with abundant, rich, Jewish content. There are thousands of years worth of texts, traditions, and values! But rote learning will not make you a literate Jew. Learning to the test will not make your life better. Do you know what will? Exploring how to think about all that Jewish stuff and its relevance to your life. That’s what an ADRABA education is designed to do – from day one.
You'll learn to do.

You'll learn the future.
Learning has changed – and we’ve designed a school to reflect that. We still have excellent teachers to spark interest, frame questions and help learners find answers. But with technology, learners can do more than what the traditional classroom can manage. At ADRABA, the classroom walls move. There is no bell to tell us when we begin and end learning. And, most importantly, how we learn is as individualized as the fingerprint that unlocks our phone.
This year’s course is no exception.
World Religions and Belief Traditions: Perspectives, Issues, and Challenges will explore a period in history where Judaism, Christianity and Islam evolved and grew into world religions.
We will learn about how each religion confronted the big questions of human experience, and how each regarded the individual within the family, society and the world.
We will also explore the connections between religion and the development of civilization.
Most importantly, we will learn the skills necessary to research, think about and think critically about world religions.
Classes begin October 28
We meet Mondays and Wednesdays,
from 3:40 – 6:00pm
at the Hartman Beit Midrash
(2nd floor, Congregation Beth Torah).
Open to any keen high school teen!
