TICHON - HEBREW HIGH

 

Midway's Tichon is a program of Jewish learning and social time with your friends in 8th-12th grade.  We balance fun and focus, experiential and book learning. The greater number of students that attend Tichon,the greater the variety of classes we can offer, so get your Jewish friends to join you at Hebrew High.  You can even invite friends who are not members of Midway as they can register just for Hebrew High!

Tichon is a great way to take a break from the busy week to eat, schmooze, and learn with your peers.  We'll explore a range of topics relevant to your experiences as a Jewish teen today: defining personal values and ethical systems, making choices about life after high school, taking action on social justice issues, connecting to Israel and the global Jewish people, and much, much more!

 

The Hebrew High School structure is such that all students learn first in their 'core class' and then they also choose an elective class.  Both the core class and the elective class rotate during the year so that the students have the opportunity to learn with different teachers and experience a change in class dynamics. Rabbi Rank also joins the high school students once a month where he engages them in learning about an upcoming holiday, current events, or other material.

Tichon does parallel the students who participate in our USY program and while students do not need to be members of both, they are encouraged to try our USY programming as well.
