Come to SAR for an extraordinary experience! At SAR you will see that we value the voice of children. What they say and think matters and we have created an environment they can discover and grow in an inquiry based, hands-on, meaningful way. We will highlight how our school is infused with Jewish values and Hebrew language opportunities while appreciating all the world has to offer. We believe in the freedom to explore and discover children’s play is their work. At the same time, central to our work is Jewish practice and tradition. 

The Paradigm Project partners with leaders in the field of Jewish Education in their city to provide a high quality professional development opportunity for educators to continue their journey of life-long learning. This mini-conference is brought to your city to Pop-Up and create the Paradigm experience in your neighborhood. This experience provides a professional development that integrates high standards of hospitality, strong content, and a Jewish lens to frame the work.
