How We Teach
Derekh Eretz & Citizenship

Drawing on the words of Rabbi Heschel, students learn that doing “mitzvot” begins with small acts of kindness to each other, with mutual concern and consideration. There is a “Toronto Heschel” way of acting and behaving in the School that begins with administration and staff and is emulated by students and their parents. To describe this behaviour, the School uses the Hebrew term “Derech Eretz”.
