Hebrew High B’Yachad Program
B’YACHAD, the Hebrew word for “together,” is a fitting title for our Hebrew High School. Our unique program for 8th to 10th grade students has grown tremendously over the past six years, and we’re looking forward to another wonderful season of bonding, learning, sharing meals, discussing a wide variety of topics, and embarking on new adventures.
Our B’Yachad students learn to embrace Judaism and Jewish values as they relate to their lives and the world- at- large. We encourage an atmosphere of acceptance and respect with a commitment to open sharing without judgement. Each grade meets separately twice a month on alternating Thursdays, and we join together for special events and programs.
B’Yachad members are empowered as they help select topics of interest. Students also decide where to head for the annual three-day trip. After successful jaunts to Boston and Washington, DC, the group will be heading to Philadelphia in the spring! The trips are always packed full with stops at important landmarks, Jewish-related sites, lots of exploration, and entertainment.
Some comments by B’Yachad students:
“This journey…has been unlike any other. One of the most special things about this Kahal (community) is that we not only learn from our teachers, but we learn a lot from each other.”
“The lessons I’ve learned throughout the years are invaluable and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. We learned what Judaism says about a variety of social issues throughout the world, but the most important thing we learned was easily the concept of community.”
“We have made so many memories and had so many experiences together that I could be here all day telling you different anecdotes….”
