Harry Elkin Midrasha Community High School

Harry Elkin Midrasha Community High School

Through Midrasha teens find a true sense of personal Jewish understanding, a community of friends, and a safe space in the midst of their crazy schedules.

Looking to join other teens in a positive, stimulating community?

Teens in grades 8 through 12 are welcome to join the Harry Elkin Midrasha Community High School. Teens in the Midrasha community describe it as “the one place during the week where I can just slow down for a minute and really get to be myself.”  

Midrasha is designed to:

  • Help Jewish teens connect deeply with their peers in a larger community
  • Find adults in their lives who really support them
  • Better understand who they are, what they believe, what they value
  • Appreciate how they treat themselves and others.

All students, regardless of previous religious education, denomination, or synagogue affiliation are welcome to join Midrasha. Through classes, social programs, trips, retreats, leadership opportunities, tzedakah and tikkun olam programs, and more, teens find a true sense of personal Jewish understanding, a community of friends that will last a lifetime, and a safe space in the midst of their crazy schedules.

Taught by experienced and outstanding mentors, classes are offered in a wide variety of subject areas, such as Jewish History, Ethics, Arts and Culture, Literature, Community Service, Leadership, Rabbinics, Bible, and Hebrew Language.
