Mission Statement

Tzedek v’Shalom hopes to foster a lifelong love of Jewish learning and a sense of belonging to the Jewish people. We seek challenging and creative education that illuminates the relevance of Judaism to our lives. Every child is known and valued in our community.


We believe the process of teaching and learning from each other plays a vital role in weaving us together as a community. We look for opportunities when children can teach and learn from one another and we do our best to teach in ways that are fun and meaningful to children. As teachers, we also open ourselves to opportunities to learn from our students. We believe in creating a link between home, school and synagogue and therefore seek opportunities to teach the family unit as well as the individual child. Each week there is a family assembly to integrate learning.
