They are most positive about the encouragement and support received from teachers. Social Attitudes They are more resistant than their public school peers to social pressures such as heavy drinking that leads to other risky behaviors.

Application to Life at College Their Jewish day school education provides outstanding preparation for a broad range of colleges and universities, including those that are most selective. They participate in all aspects of undergraduate life and are well represented in the ranks of student leaders.

Mohel[ edit ] A mohel is a Jew trained in the practice of brit milah, the “covenant of circumcision. The brit is performed on the eighth day from the baby’s birth, taking into consideration that according to the Jewish calendar, the day begins at the sunset of the day before. If the baby is born on Sunday before sunset, the Brit will be held the following Sunday.

What makes this app stand out from all the rest? Well, Shalom has an innovative edge. It uses an advanced technology that suggests matches based on user behavior and data like location, partner preferences, and recent activity.
