Our Educational Philosophy:
Maintaining our focus on healthy spiritual growth and taking into account the whole student, at Tomer Devorah a large emphasis is placed on nurturing strong internal character development. Impressing upon students at this formative juncture the primacy and importance of middot tovot and proper character traits leaves a lasting impression. Part of empowering a student to make real life decisions wisely is imparting to her the central role the Torah places on middot in a maturing and flourishing young woman. Both in the classroom and out, our students will receive warm guidance and encouragement in their self development.
Outside of regular courses and activities, Tomer Devorah conducts Yimei Iyun workshops dedicated to personal development and growth. Prominent guest lecturers from various fields of expertise will engage our students in exciting discussions and programs focusing on communication skills, interpersonal relationships, positive thinking and other essential real-life skills. We all realize that a student’s year in Israel is a seminal time in her life. In addition to our core curriculum, which includes classes on the importance and understanding of middot and the mitzvot bein adam l’chaveiro, extracurricular activities will focus on this essential area of growth as well.
