The Frisch School

  • The raison d'etre of The Frisch School, as a unique educational institution of Bergen County, is to promote the values and study of the Judaic heritage as defined within the Written Law (Bible) and Oral Law (Talmud).
  • We believe that every human being is created in the image of God, and therefore endowed with inherent worth.
  • Furthermore, the human expression and experience are worthy of study, understanding, and evaluation.
  • We believe that the Jewish People have been selected by God for a way of life which endows them with sanctity.
  • The Jewish people are distinct by virtue of their adherence to both the ethical and ritual precepts of Torah (Jewish Law).
  • It is this distinction which we believe is worthy of promotion and perpetuation through the Jewish learning and living experience.
  • We believe that the creation of the State of Israel is one of the seminal events in Jewish history.
  • We seek to instill in our students an attachment to the State of Israel and its people as well as a sense of responsibility for their welfare.
