About CJCS And Its Philosophy

The Columbia Jewish Community School (CJCS) is the oldest religious school in Howard County, Maryland. Founded in 1971 in the tradition of Ahad Ha’am, a great Zionist thinker who once claimed that “nothing Jewish is alien to me.” CJCS has strived, through its curriculum, its faculty, and its activities, to expose its students to many diverse Jewish religious perspectives and to do so in a positive manner. We believe that this approach best equips our students to make informed decisions of their own when faced with the many monumental choices of life in general and of Jewish life in particular.
