Extra-Curriculars

Events such as Rosh Hodesh Program, Tu B'Shevat Berachot Bee, Model Seder, Lag Ba’Omer Olympics, Mishmar, Matmidim, Passover Food Drive and the Chai Lifeline Toy Drive are but a few of the special incentive programs which add “Life to the Light” of each student’s future. Each program is specifically created to reinforce the lifelong commitment to Torah, Avoda, and Gemilut Hasadim which are core to our curriculum. At JDOHSS teaching and modeling Midot Tovot and Derech Eretz is an integral part of our philosophy.
