Heschel Honor Society

Here at Beth El Synagogue, Heschel Honor Society is in its sixth 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 led by Rabbi Olitzky.
  2. Prayer (Avodah) – Society members must participate in congregational prayer at least four times a month – three of which should be on Shabbat.
  3. Acts of Loving Kindness (G’milut Hasadim) – At least once a month, society members must engage in at least two hours of community service.
2020-2021 School Year Sign-Ups Available Soon!
