Kadima’s students represent a wide range of Jewish backgrounds and affiliations. Our student body is representative of the greater Jewish Community in the San Fernando Valley, with families belonging to a variety of Jewish institutions, including Conservative, Reform, Modern Orthodox, Reconstructionist, or Outreach based synagogues; local summer camps groups, such as Camp Ramah, JCA Shalom or Camp Alonim; and other community based groups.
As a member of the Schechter Day School Network (Visit http://schechternetwork.org/ for more information), Kadima is committed to maintaining a welcoming feeling on our campus by serving a broad Jewish population and is characterized by Jewish principles, high academic achievement, social responsibility, and joyous spiritual engagement in a culture of caring and community. As such, boys and girls are encouraged to participate equally in all aspects of Jewish life on campus. Boys in the Elementary School are required to wear yarmulke/kippot throughout the day. In the Middle School, boys are required to wear kippot during Judaic Studies, Hebrew, Prayers, and at meal time.
