Judaic Studies Curriculum

Torah Day School of Ottawa’s rich Judaic Studies Program aims to imbue our children with a strong sense of Jewish identity, a love of Eretz Israel and an ardent commitment to Mitvah observance.

Our program goes beyond comprehensive textual learning and includes exciting hands-on activities and experiences both in and out of the classroom that teach our students how to live and love what they learn.

The curriculum includes Hebrew reading, Ivrit, Chumash study using the highly acclaimed Lehavin Ulehaskil program, Navi, Jewish history and Tefilah (prayer). Gemara/Talmud is also a major emphasis in the upper elementary classes for boys. The curriculum gives students the foundational skills to develop into independent learners. Graduates of our school are well equipped to go on to any high school of their choice, including any Yeshiva high school.

Our caring and dedicated staff create a dynamic learning environment involving, field trips, creative projects and special events. In addition to academic studies, we provide students with an enriching school environment. This fosters school spirit and togetherness, helping ensure that our students stay engaged and are excited to come to school each day.

Our goal is for our students to acquire the foundations to live a Torah lifestyle and to be passionate lifelong Torah learners, interested in playing active leadership roles in our community. We foster a love of learning, a strong sense of community, Jewish identity and ethical values by combining mesorah (tradition) with innovative teaching strategies.
