SHAI HIGH (9th - 11th grade)

Shai High is the next stage of learning for our high schoolers. This interactive series guides teens through the arduous process of being a young Jewish adult. Through on-site learning, guest speakers, and local field trips, students in Shai High will explore the complexity of Jewish life through two distinct units.

We will begin a six-week unit exploring the complex nature of antisemitism. Unfortunately, now, more than ever, our experience of being Jewish in the world inescapably includes encountering antisemitism. Learning about the historical expression of antisemitism and how our ancestors responded to antisemitism guides us in understanding, addressing, and countering antisemitism today. 

In February, we will pivot to an exploration of relationships as we grow.  As we say in our vision statement of Shearith Israel, “Relationships are at the center of everything we do.” Guided by Jewish texts, we will learn that healthy and consensual relationships, whether familial, friendly, or romantic, are essential for meaningful living through Judaism. Ultimately, Jewish life revolves around relationships with God, the world, history, ancestors, fellow individuals, and ourselves. 

Enrollment for Shai High is $360 for members and $425 for non-members and includes the cost of dinner and field trip admissions.
