SHAI HIGH (9th - 11th grade)

Named for the synagogue, this class is the next stage of learning after Gesher. This interactive class helps to guide teens through the oftentimes arduous process of being a young adult. The focus will be on viewing the world through a Jewish lens. How do I use my Jewish values to make a better place for all? The class consists of learning on site, as well as local field trips with guest speakers. Together, we take this journey with your child as they begin to develop their own, individual relationship with the Jewish traditions.


Enrollment is $360 for members and $425 for non-members.

Classes meet from 12:30 -1:45 pm on Sundays.
