The rebbeim at JEC High School impart not just the skills their talmidim need to thrive as Torah Jews -- they also imbue them with a love of Torah learning to carry them throughout their lives.
At the JEC, every student develops his strengths while acquiring new skills from outstanding and highly trained Rebbeim who employ a variety of teaching methodologies. Three levels of instruction, plus one-on-one guidance and individualized guidance, provide each talmid the opportunity to learn and succeed.
The entire yeshiva begins each day learning b’chavrusah in a beis-medrash-style morning seder. Here, under the guidance of their rebbeim, students take possession of their learning, deconstructing texts, analyzing arguments, and developing the critical thinking skills necessary for success.
The daily schedule provides talmidim with an expansive range of Limudei Kodesh classes in Gemara, Halacha, Chumash, and Na”ch. Our curricula build skills progressively, preparing the boys for independent Torah learning that is the hallmark of their year(s) studying in Israel and beyond. We also offer advanced elective shiurim in Gemara for those who choose to advance their skills and bekius.
Central to a talmid’s growth is their relationship with their rebbe. At the JEC, we foster an environment that encourages lifelong relationships between Rebbe and talmid. Our Rebbeim are talmidei chachamim who imbue their shiurim with sincerity, warmth, and ahava. Each Rebbe’s attention to and care for every talmid enable the boys to flourish in learning and development as b'nei Torah.
Talmidim at the JEC are prepared to live an inspired Jewish life filled with Torah Im Derech Eretz.
