A meeting between
the Bureau of Jewish
Education TALIT Gimel Class and
Hebrew University High
School of Jerusalem
A generous gift from the Samueli Family
Foundations Grant allows ten students from the Hebrew University High School
of Jerusalem to travel to Orange County each year and spend time interacting and educating our community.
While here, these students will spend a
Shabbaton weekend at camp with our Adat Noar (9th grade) students and select
12th graders; speak at area religious schools; attend public school with
their host students; and travel around Southern California.
About the Hebrew University Secondary School of
Created in 1935
Privately owned, recognized by the Ministry of
Education and academically autonomous.
In recent years, the school has taken an active part
in the absorption of new immigrants from Russia, both students and teachers.
For the last 3 years, has taken part in the Na'aleh
program, for students who come to Israel without their parents. These students
live in Kibbutz Zor'ah near Jerusalem.
Former President Yitzhak Navon, Chief Justice Aharon
Barak, authors David Grossman and Meir Shalev, to name just a few, are all
graduates of the school.
Another major mission: working with students with
cognitive abilities and high motivation for learning, who socio-economic
background prevents them from fulfilling their intellectual potential.
Within the rapidly changing, and sometimes even
turbulent, Israeli society and Middle East at large, the school continues to
educate its students on humanistic values, moderation, intellectual integrity,
social awareness and involvement.
