Har Zion High School of Jewish Studies
and A.M. Ellis Midrasha
From the moment students walk through the front door, they feel our energized commitment toward their education. Our curriculum creates a synergy between tradition, "Out of the Box" subjects and individual experiences. Classes are relevant and student-centered, with a focus on student interaction rather than teacher lecture. Students also have the opportunities to study, learn, and socialize with other Hebrew High School students in our area. Our goal is to create an educational experience that will not only foster a sense of Hevrah (community) within our school, but encourage a true sense of Mishpahah (family). With the help of our experienced, respected, and committed faculty, we create an atmosphere in which students will be eager to attend and will play active roles in helping our school achieve unparalleled success. Our curriculum offers classes about Judaism: the weekly Parasha, Israel, Pirke Avot, Jewish Heroes, The Holocaust, and The Mishnah. We also offer a social service program and classes about the contemporary issues that Jewish people and Jewish teenagers face today. Our High School is open to the community.
"Paper Clips" Trip to Whitwell, TN
In November, 2011, the Har Zion High School of Jewish Studies welcomed Sandy Roberts, coordinator of the "Paper Clips" Project from Whitwell, TN.
Her visit inspired us to visit the Children's Holocaust Memorial in Whitwell, TN in April, 2012.
