What is Hamilton Hebrew High and what’s in it for me?
Hamilton Hebrew High is an after school for-credit Jewish Studies program for public high school students in grades 9-12. (Grade 8 students can take advantage of a grade 9 course through the Reach Ahead Program.) Hamilton Hebrew High offers you a great way to learn and earn credit with for-credit courses, amazing topics, exciting events, retreats, and yes, food.
Can I be part of Hebrew High if I never attended a Jewish school?
Yes! Hamilton Hebrew High is open to all Jewish public high school teens regardless of religious affiliation, background, or previous Jewish education. Hamilton Hebrew High has a warm and accepting environment and we approach everything with an open and honest mind and let you draw your own conclusions.
Do you offer anything besides classes?
Yes! Join us for weekend retreats, exciting teen events, Friday night Shabbat dinners, movie nights, and more!
What do I need to do?
