Heschel Honor Society

Here at Beth El Synagogue, Heschel Honor Society is in its seventh year, and it has continuously made an enormous impact on those who are involved. We recognize that our teens are diverse in their interests, extracurricular activities and academic achievements. The Heschel Honor Society strives to cultivate the strengths and passions of a select number of talented teens—especially with Jewish life and learning. You are recognized in this capacity as a member of our own chapter of the international Abraham Joshua Heschel Honor Society.
As a member of the AJHHS, our students are committed to:

  1. The Study of Torah – Society members must take part in monthly learning sessions around social justice and tikkun olam led by Rabbi Goldberg and Louis Stein.
  2. Acts of Loving Kindness (G’milut Hasadim) – At least once a month, society members volunteer together at an organization that corresponds with the learning we did at the beginning of the month.
  3. Tzedakah – Throughout the year, Heschel society members are responsible for raising money. At the end of the year, we will allocate the funds we have raised to one or multiple organizations at which we volunteered.
