Kavod Code

Rav Ben Zoma teaches: Who is worthy of kavod (respect)? 

The one who treats other human beings with kavod (respect).” (Pirkei Avot 4:1)

One of the central goals of the Temple Isaiah Religious School community is to work in partnership with our families towards a vibrant, caring, and ethical learning community. The Temple Isaiah Religious School Kavod Code is a fundamental set of rules that apply to all students, parents, and teachers.

  • Students have a responsibility to follow the Kavod Code by conducting themselves in a manner that is in the best interest of learning and the spirit of community.
  • Parents have a responsibility to develop positive attitudes toward study and behavior and to foster the fundamental concepts of our Kavod Code.
  • Teachers have a responsibility to develop age-appropriate classroom rules that encompass and complement the Kavod Code and to encourage positive behavior through teaching and classroom management.
