Hesed and Tzedek: Service and Justice

“Every deed counts.”
-Abraham Joshua Heschel

Heschel builds a unique ethical learning community that inspires its students to become engaged leaders in our Jewish and world communities. We cultivate a commitment to both hesed (deeds of kindness) and tzedek (the pursuit of justice) as expressions of our religious imperative to unite people through shared humanity and mutual respect.

Community Service

Community service is at the core of Heschel's mission. Our students participate in days of service throughout the year and our Parents' Association plans several community wide programs that provide volunteer opportunities.
