The program of the Yeshiva of Greater Washington-Tiferes Gedaliah [YGW] is directed toward the development of individuals whose lives will be enriched by devotion to learning and to the spiritual and moral values of Judaism. Excellence in intellectual and ethical pursuits is a common goal shared by the adults and young people involved in the school. Standing behind the program are our beliefs that:
Education is a lifelong process.
Each student has unique capabilities and needs a learning environment in which he or she can develop those capabilities to the fullest.
The learning environment most conducive to this goal is one in which the worth and individuality of each student is valued and respected.
Such a supportive environment is the optimum climate to produce confident, independent, questioning students able to meet their own problems and make positive contributions to society.
Students should not be shielded from frustration, delay, and defeat. However, students should be helped to use their positive learning experiences as support in dealing with temporary setbacks.
In order to provide equal employment and advancement opportunities to all individuals, employment decisions at YGW will be based on merit, qualifications, and abilities. Conditions of employment will not be influenced or affected by an applicant's or employee's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or any other characteristic protected by Federal or Maryland laws and regulations, including but not limited to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Uniform Guidelines of Employee Selection Procedures.
