  • As Reform Jews, we were nervous about the religious aspect, but at Schechter, you are free to practice your religion as you see fit. We don't feel different than and we don't feel any pressure to be "more religious". At the same time, we respect those that are more observant than us and love that there is a place for everyone.

    - Jill, Parent
  • I am a proud alum of Schechter and cannot begin to measure the impact it has had on my life. Unlike any other school, Schechter has a focus on high-level thinking and advanced academic skills that go beyond the classroom, but in daily life.

Schechter Shavua: September 23, 2022

What makes a Schechter education so special? One reason is that students have the benefit of being able to integrate Judaic Studies into many aspects of their learning. Their Jewish connection isn’t siloed off as something they learn on the side. Inside this issue, you’ll learn just some of the age-appropriate ways that our students are combining their Rosh Hashanah learning with science, math, art, and of course… food. Plus, we are strengthening our sense of community through Parent Coffees; learn about our first one and mark your calendar for the next! Last, Rabbi Berger discusses this week’s parasha and some valuable lessons on inclusion and community as we approach Rosh Hashanah. We wish you all a happy and healthy new year! Shanah tovah!
