If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when?
— Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14

Our Mission

The Idea School creates a learning environment that sparks inquiry and exploration and connects students to themselves, God, their Judaism, and the world. Idea School students engage confidently and creatively with people, ideas and texts; contribute to society in ethically and morally responsible ways; meaningfully enrich and grow their Jewish communities; and see the image of God in every human being, and the interconnectedness of all living things.
