Torah and Arts High School

About

In 1992, Emunah launched a unique and outstanding program of academic and artistic excellence, the Torah and Arts High School. The high school pioneered an educational curriculum that offered arts education for talented girls within a Torah environment.

The school combines Judaic studies with a full academic program in the sciences and humanities, and a curriculum in the arts which encompass dance, film, music, theater and the visual arts. The educational goal is to produce well-rounded, forward-looking young women, who are sophisticated in their creativity and capable of contributing to the development of Jewish cultural expression within Israeli society.

Today, a large number of our students come from the most vulnerable family settings. They face financial, emotional and learning difficulties. The school now offers tutoring, counseling, and numerous scholarships to cover tuition, books and food vouchers.

“Somehow I just couldn’t fit in at my last high school. I wasn’t doing well and couldn’t pay attention. All I really wanted to do was draw. Here I have finally had a chance to express myself, and now all my grades are up. I’m so happy about that.”
