IMG 8550smTalmidim at the JEC High School grow a love of Torah learning that carries them through life.  Each student develops the skills they need to thrive as Torah Jews.  

At the JEC, every student learns to their 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 an individualized approach provides 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 further 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 that imbue shiur with warmth and ahava. Each Rebbe’s attention and care for every talmid allows the boys to flourish in learning and development as bnai Torah.

Talmidim at the JEC become prepared to live an inspired Jewish life filled Torah Im Derech Eretz.
