“Human being is both being in the world and living in the world. Living involves responsible understanding of one's role in relation to all other beings.”
-Abraham Joshua Heschel
Heschel students learn to be engaged, concerned, and involved citizens. Through classroom and experiential learning, we teach connection to and responsibility for the future of life in America and our global community. New York City is an extension of our classrooms, offering our students boundless opportunities to engage with and contribute to the many communities that make up our city.
