Israel Education is a pillar of the curriculum at the Jewish Community High School (JCHS). We firmly believe that American Jewish Identity and Israel go hand in hand and we foster this connection between our two communities through formal and informal programming.
JCHS collaborates with local, national, and international organizations that share our vision of Israel Education including AIPAC (The American Israel Political Affairs Committee), The David Project, CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), The Israeli Consulate, The Israel and Overseas Office of The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, and RealLife Israel (a division of MASA).
In addition, JCHS in partnership with JFGP, in sponsorship of a program called i2i I’m going to Israel. This exciting Israel educational and travel immersion program offers 8th graders a memorable experience after their Bar/Bat Mitzvah. The program gives participants a meaningful, emotional and focused taste of their heritage with interactive educational experiences in the Philadelphia area, then a ten day experience in Israel. There are educational and leadership programs during the 9th grade year which are all part of the program.
