Tradition of Blessing Grade 12 and Kindergarten Students Continues

In what has become a tradition at Heschel, Kindergarten children marched under a tent of talitot that was held up by the Grade 12 students. The ceremony, held on the High School Roof, featured Rabbi Dahlia Kronish, High School Associate Head, blessing both the Kindergarten students and the seniors. Judy Wolf-Nevid, Early Childhood Head, welcomed everyone to the ceremony and asked both the youngest and oldest students what tradition means to them.

This week, Heschel welcomed Early Childhood students to the 2021-2022 school year. The children marched into Heschel full of excitement, with enthusiasm, and even some tears (from both the children AND their parents). We can't wait to watch our youngest students grow in every which way as they begin the 2021-2022 school year.

Heschel welcomed students in grades 1-12 this week. Classrooms have come to life with ideas and discussions. The sounds of tefillah have returned to Heschel's hallways. Our community is buzzing with excitement and learning. Get a glimpse of how Heschel kicked off the 2021-2022 academic year!

Grade 9 had the great joy this week of traveling together as a grade to Spring Lake Day Camp. For any grade, an end of the year trip is a special occasion. And for this particular Ninth Grade – a group of students who faced the unique challenge of beginning their high school journey on Zoom and in pods, who had not yet been able to experience an activity together as a full grade, and who had to approach this year with great faith in themselves and each other – this trip felt especially sweet.
