Inside Heschel High

Inside Heschel High is a living, breathing space on our website that captures the life of the High School. You can always find up to date news, photo galleries and videos of day-to-day activities at Heschel High School.

The High School community gathered for a LGBQT+ faculty panel led by senior Elana Nussbaum-Cohen, ally and member of the High School's Gender and Sexuality Alliance. The panel focused on some of the internal and external conflicts that each faced during their "coming out", and for those members of the faculty panel who are Jewish, how their religion played a role in their self-discovery. At the end of the program, one student asked the panel, "what would you tell your younger self, knowing what you know now?"  The panel members provided overwhelmingly supportive answers ranging from "you are not alone", "things get better", and "you have an incredible story to tell, don't be afraid to tell it."

The Heschel Blood Drive provided 87 pints of blood for the New York Blood Center. Every pint of blood can be divided into three components, the drive helped over 260 lives. Those who donated on Wednesday are able to donate again on April 3 - mark your calendars and donate again! Thank you to the New York Blood Center team who worked all day to make our donation experience as fun and smooth as possible! And, a big thanks to the Hesed Council who hosted this incredible event.
