• Each week when I read the Friday newsletter I feel great. It makes me proud of what our school, our students, and our faculty and staff accomplish each and every day.

    - Jessica, Alumni Parent, Board Chairwoman
  • 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.

    - Ben, Alumni and Board Member
  • 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
  • Schechter shaped me into the person I am today. All of the teachers really reinforced the idea of respect, love toward Judaism, and being a good person.

    - Maddy, Class of 2014
  • We are beyond thrilled with the rigorous secular education, the community and the spiritual values our children are being taught.

Schechter Shavua: September 30, 2022

In this issue of the Schechter Shavua, we are highlighting three Schechter Board Members - both current and former - who have been recognized for their significant local, national, and global contributions. We are so proud of the examples they set for others in the Schechter community, representing our Core Values of Lev Tov (Good Heart), Chochma (Wisdom), and Klal Yisrael (Community). We wish each of them a hearty mazal tov!


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!
