Jewish private schools are religious-affiliated or faith-based schools, associated with the religion of Judaism. They’re commonly known as “Jewish day schools.” They’re also sometimes called “Hebrew schools”.

Jewish day schools in Canada tend to be very strong in academics. They also offer a strong Jewish education, focused on torah study, Jewish history, and Hebrew. And, they aim to instill traditional Jewish values and a strong Jewish identity in their students. Most Jewish day schools don’t require their students to be Jewish or practice Judaism.

There are many different kinds of Jewish day schools in Canada, each with its own focus and approach. Some of these schools are associated with a specific movement in Judaism, such as the reformed, conservative, or orthodox movement. Others aren’t associated with any movement.

More orthodox or traditional schools tend to require a higher degree of religious observance. Students in these schools tend to engage in plenty of Jewish prayer. They may also be required to wear proper religious attire: for instance, boys might be required to wear head coverings—or what are called “kepas” (or “kepot” in Hebrew).

Another option is a Jewish boarding school. In one of these schools, your child will receive a strong Jewish education in a boarding setting.
