Mission

Jewish continuity is the ultimate goal of BCHSJS. Our mission is to provide a stimulating and supportive environment for high school students to discover and develop their Jewish identity.

We combine meaningful education with social activities that help students connect with other Jewish teens on the same journey. We strive to instill the core Jewish values of:

Klal Yisrael       (Jewish Pluralism)
Tikkun Olam   (Mending the World)
Derech Eretz   (Respect for Others)
Ahavat Israel   (Love of Israel)

Teens’ experience at BCHSJS and exploration of Jewish culture, heritage, values, morals and the centrality of Israel will help them foster a deep Jewish identity that will last a lifetime. By making Judaism relevant at this formative time in a young person’s life, we create the bridge for them to become confident, committed Jewish adults.
