Spiritual Direction

courtesy Jeffry Gusky, M.d.

The synagogue and its outdoor courtyard (far left) form the heart of the campus. The water, walkways, and greenery spiraling around the holy space serves as a reminder that all things flow from the school’s religious foundation. The strong central axis toward Jerusalem, created by a stone colonnade and the planting of trees, suggest the distant presence of the physical origin of the Jewish faith. The spaces between buildings are carefully planned, as they are the gateways to the larger community.
