Jewish Pluralism

Milwaukee Jewish Day School is a pluralistic Jewish community. Our curricular shorashim (roots) include Jewish text, theology, practice, Israel and memory. We partner with our families, empowering students to develop these Jewish shorashim, nourish their neshamot (souls) and grow into lifelong Jewish learners.

 

"Who is wise? One who learns from all." Pirkei Avot 4

We are rooted in this idea that we learn from others. By exploring the diversity of Jewish tradition, understanding and expression, we better understand our own Judaism. At MJDS, we give students and families the experiences and tools to engage with the world, while creating meaningful Jewish time together.
