The Basics of Prozdor
Prozdor creates a vibrant community for Jewish youth during their adolescent years.
Our academic program is rich and varied; students have the power to choose the subjects they wish to study. Traditional texts, history, Israel, philosophy, literature, Hebrew and the arts are just some areas that engage our students as they gain a genuine love of Jewish learning from our faculty.
Prozdor’s commitment to Jewish experiential education provides students with additional opportunities to connect to their peers and to Judaism beyond the classroom. Additionally, our Jewish travel experiences serve to expose our students to Jewish life all over the world.
Ultimately, Prozdor prepares students to enter their college years ready for the challenges of being a Jewish young adult in America and in the larger world.
