Message From the Principal

Atid is a Hebrew word that means future and connects us with the language that strengthens our identity and unites us with the Jewish people.

The future requires us to look forward and commits us to take care of our community and our people, for which it is necessary to learn from the past, know our roots, appeal on our sources and preserve our traditions.

Being part of the network of Jewish schools in our community, the Atid School seeks the growth of the Jew-Mexican identity through learning experiences, where students can live and learn through the daily work of the school.

Our school belongs to the Maguen David community, and in this framework, we stick to its principles and values, receiving students from all sections of the community.

Overview

The Jewish Studies Department is based on a program focused on the development of values ​​that address Jewish issues, always respecting the decisions and level of religiosity of each family.

Through this program, our students:

• Learn Torah and Tanach in a measured way, always taking care that its study is relevant to the students’ present and their current needs.

• Celebrate the dates marked by the Jewish calendar, understanding its principles and experiencing its traditions. They learn to pray; we consider necessary that every Jewish child and young man knows how to take a siddur and understands its meaning. At the same time, we open the opportunity for those who wish to participate in the tefilá in the mornings.

• They learn Hebrew, understanding this language as a deep bond with the development of Jewish identity. The approach is communicative, that is, it seeks to enable students to communicate through the comprehension, expression, reading, and writing of Hebrew, but also under a cultural approach that is reflected in the study based on authentic texts that are close to their reality.

• They learn Jewish history, understanding the global context in which our people have developed. In the other hand, they understand the history of the State of Israel, strengthening their pride and sense of belonging.

• They participate in community events to strengthen their sense of belonging. They assist in activities for institutions such as Kadima, Keren Keyemet and Keren Hayesod. They attend sports events, art shows, talks, and conferences. They also participate in Jidón Tanaj and Jidón Tzionut.

The Morim of the Jewish Studies Department are in constant preparation and updating by taking advantage of the courses taught by the Hebrew University, the project of Mejanjei Israel and on internal training.
