Yeshivat Yavneh believes that our children should be educated in and firmly committed to the two civilizations of which they are a part: Torah Judaism with a commitment to Israel and the principles and values which are a part of American life. We believe these two traditions should be well-integrated within each student. Students are expected to reach for excellence, maintain the highest standards of menschlichkeit reflecting an attitude and behavior consistent with moral sensitivity, personal refinement and human decency.
In support of these beliefs, the school strives to help our children to develop a mastery of the foundations of the Jewish Studies curriculum with a major emphasis on Torah learning skills, Hebrew language and Jewish ritual. With equal emphasis, the school strives to help the children develop a mastery of the disciplines that constitute the foundation of the General Studies curriculum.
These goals are not merely intellectual endeavors. We are also seeking to create a spiritual environment, which will help our children develop a love for Torah and the observance of mitzvoth, while also developing an appreciation of the American heritage.
We view each child as a unique person. The school strives to enhance each child’s self-image as an essential ingredient to his/her development. We encourage each child to grow to his/her potential within a warm, secure, and exciting school environment.
We aim to provide a state of the art program to facilitate maximum progress for each student in both the Judaic and General Studies areas.
As part of our school philosophy, we encourage in our children Ahavat Yisrael, a love for the Jewish people and the State of Israel, as well as a respect for the rights of all people and a concern for their well being.
Yeshivat Yavneh is open to all families who share our mission. It is, therefore, essential that the school and home work closely together so that the values, which are taught in school find support, acceptance, and observance at home and in public life.
