Jewish Culture at McGillis

DSC 0373From our Purpose, Mission, and Vision document: our teaching and our community are grounded in the fundamental values found in the Jewish culture and shared by all who seek to better the world.

We celebrate Jewish traditions and holidays and bring the values they represent to life in the ways we educate our children, build our community, govern our school, and utilize our resources.

This Jewish Culture at McGillis section is here to educate our community about the Jewish traditions and holidays as well as share ways in which our Jewish culture enhances our education.

To better understand how Jewish holidays are celebrated by a Jewish family as well as how the holiday is interpreted and celebrated at McGillis, please select from any of the holidays below.
