The education, events and experiences at American Jewish University are all grounded in 5 key areas:
LEARNING AND SCHOLARSHIP
We believe in the principle of Torah Li’Sh’mah-Learning as an Intellectual and Inspirational Endeavor-that embraces both academic scholarship and the efforts of all Jews to explore their shared heritage through the formal and informal study of Judaism and the other great civilizations of the world.
We acknowledge that Judaism is a flourishing civilization with a culture that is fundamental to modern Jewish identity. We strive to advance that culture by encouraging artistic endeavor in all of its many forms.
We recognize that ethics is the language of Judaism and its most important link to the world at large.
We understand that the future of Jewish life depends on the careful preparation of dedicated and impassioned individuals who are called to leadership.
We are a pluralistic institution that embraces diversity within Judaism and values the contributions of all groups to the growth of Jewish Civilization.
