Parents Need Civics Too

Employing an innovative and comprehensive approach to civic education, SAR High School has designed rigorous programs for students, teachers, alumni, and parents.

This past fall, Rabbi Akiva Block taught a 4-part series called “The Jewish Ethic of Citizenship” as part of SAR’s Machon Siach (“thinking institution”) Adult Education program. Participants in the course studied American and Jewish primary sources to explore how the Jewish tradition speaks to the responsibilities and opportunities of American citizenship.
