Opening Minds, Bridging Differences, Living Jewish Values.


We are closer to God when we are asking questions than when we think we have the answers.”
-Abraham Joshua Heschel

Heschel creates a pluralistic community of students, faculty, and families from a wide range of Jewish, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds. Embracing differences demands that we engage each other in meaningful, substantive, and inclusive exploration of Jewish learning and living.

Grade 8 students interviewed a member of each grade at Heschel about the Shema.
