The Cardozo Academy is an Adult Education Program dedicated to the dissemination of Jewish thought and teaches rabbis, academicians, educators, future Jewish leaders and laymen a new approach which explains Judaism in the language of the new millenium.

It offers unprecedented insights and observations with the goal of narrowing the gap between religious and irreligious Jews and aims to reveal the heart of Judaism through Sephardic and other authentic Jewish teachings. It emphasizes Judaism's universal message for non-Jews and endeavors to raise Zionism above political ideologies.

The school offers lectures, courses, books, audio tapes, weekly essays on the Internet and papers on the ideology behind Jewish law, faith, Sephardica and Judaism's encounter with general philosophy, psychology, political theory, history, science, art and music. Courses and lectures are given throughout the State of Israel, USA, Canada, Europe and South Africa.

The school has been established in memory of Rabbi David Lopes Cardozo of the Portuguese-Spanish Synagogue of Amsterdam (1800-1888).
