Merkaz Community High School
for Judaic Studies

 

 

The place to be on Tuesday evenings and Sundays for teens throughout our community


Merkaz serves a diverse population and provides a pluralistic and supportive environment for Jewish learning. Each week, students from neighboring towns, synagogues, and high schools join together as one community to learn, socialize, explore and strengthen their ties to Judaism.


To learn more about this dynamic, innovative, and popular program, browse our most recent Program Guide and Course Catalog.

 

Merkaz students (grades 9-12) are provided a unique opportunity to take part in social action, text study, Holocaust education, music and courses on Israel, teen issues, ethical dilemmas, leadership, conversational Hebrew, tolerance and diversity.

 

COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

 

   Merkaz offers a variety of programs that are community-
   based where the community often becomes “the classroom”.

PROGRAMS IN ISRAEL

 
THE MERKAZ COMMITTEE is a very active, involved, and “hands-on” group, and they play an integral role in our program. We truly welcome and appreciate the support and participation of all our families, either as members of the Committee or as volunteers on Tuesday evenings.
