Jewish life on campus is vibrant, dynamic, inclusive and accessible. From kehillah time to Friday oneg to holiday celebrations and more, at Milken, we don’t just study Jewish texts, we live them.
Our students are committed to tradition, innovation and Torah – to living Jewishly and to defining for themselves what that means. In addition to practicing traditional, liberal and experimental forms of prayer and reflection, they discover identity (and the relationship between mind, body and soul) through arts, music, drama, sports, dance and retreats.
In Grade 10, students have the opportunity to participate in our Tiferet Israel Fellowship quarter of study at Alexander Muss High School in Hod Hasharon, Israel. Tiferet fellows engage in learning inside and outside of the classroom as they continue college preparatory program in addition to the place based curriculum in Jewish and Israel studies provided at Muss. Students travel each week, immerse themselves in the language and culture of Israel, engage in service learning, and learn to live independently in a dorm setting.
At Milken, our community celebrates the cycles and rhythms of Jewish time. Spiritual practice here helps our students develop their own aggadah (narrative or story) and open up personal pathways to a relationship with the divine.
