We believe that a community school is one in which Jewish students from all backgrounds and perspectives can learn from each other and celebrate our commonalities while understanding and appreciating our differences.
Jewish and general studies woven seamlessly together throughout the day have been the hallmark of Mandel JDS since its founding in 1969.
Mandel JDS continues to educate students from diverse Jewish backgrounds to be knowledgeable of their heritage while respecting differences of observance and thought within the Jewish community.
