limud-a different kind of Hebrew school

Limud is not your grandparent's Hebrew school--children are actually excited to attend. Limud focuses, above all, on "values" and "experiential learning."

On Sunday mornings, the Rabbi, Cantor, Principal. teachers, students and parents meet to catch up on the week just passed. This Kehillah - a half hour assembly of song and story-telling stresses values, such as Kindness (Chesed), Respect (Kavod) and Healing the World (Tikkun Olam). That sets the stage for classwork with formal learning with hand-picked teachers selected for their teaching skills and ability to reach students of all ages, family background and Hebrew levels.

We believe in "whole person learning," which is acquired not only through books, but also -- and perhaps more so -- through doing and experiencing. This includes a vigorous social action program and special programs..

We are supremely proud of our post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah students. Many of them remain closely connected to Limud as counselors and tutors (madrichim) for our younger students. Limud High students meet on Sunday mornings to learn about topics that interest them, and we take their feedback and input very seriously. They are our most trusted advisers. 

CTI's Limud is unique, beloved by parents and students, and a source of great pride to the entire congregation.
