Values and Ethos


Emanuel is a Community Jewish Day School that nurtures a commitment to Jewish community, heritage, ethical living and the State of Israel. We do this through a commitment to egalitarianism, pluralism, coexistence, tradition, mitzvot, Torah and Hebrew. We do so as Jewish, Australian and global citizens. In particular, we value:

● Excellence
● Perseverance
● Lifelong love of learning
● Respect
● Integrity
● Responsibility
● Compassion
● Generosity
● Justice
● Community



We support the principles of:

● Social action and outreach (Tikkun Olam)
● Personal development and growth
● Religious pluralism
● Egalitarianism
● Co-existence and acceptance of diversity
● Commitment to the State of Israel
