Maimonides provides students with both an outstanding religious education and an excellent college preparatory general education in an atmosphere that reinforces their commitment to the values of Torah and to the observance of mitzvot, and that fosters a strong sense of identification with Medinat Yisrael.Our Philosophy Torah and mitzvot-the study and practice of Halachah-are the quintessential core of Judaism, and they must be taught in an honest, sophisticated and challenging manner. Torah study is enriched by our understanding of science, philosophy, literature, art and music, which in turn is enhanced and enlightened by the teachings of Torah.
