Students in Grades 8 – 12 join with students from Temple Beth-El of Huntington. The program provides an opportunity for Jewish teens to continue their Jewish education in an environment of discussion, debate and evaluation. Students select elective courses several times during the year. High school classes are held on Monday nights from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Students are served dinner and are given a chance to socialize with other students during the first thirty minutes.

Students select electives during the year. Topics are varied. Sample subjects include:

  • Community Service Projects
  • Confirmation Seminar for 10th Graders
  • Israeli Folk Dancing
  • It’s a Girl Thing
  • Jewish Foods: Cooking and Eating
  • Jewish Humor
  • Jewish Values according to Bart Simpson
  • Live at the Improv
  • Modern Hebrew “Ulpan”
  • Modern Israel: Politics and People
  • Packing for College
  • Pop Culture / Pop Frenzy
  • Senior Seminar for 12th Graders
  • Sports and Athletes in Judaism
  • Teacher Training & Youth Leadership
  • The Jewish Lens

Over the course of the year, the program rotates between the congregations. When class is held at Temple Beth-El, the students are bused from Temple Beth David. In order to ride on the bus, students must be at Temple Beth David by 6:00 p.m. The bus returns at approximately 8:25 p.m.

A highlight of the year is the CHHS Conclave held at the URJ Eisner Camp in Great Barrington, MA, every November.

A joint Confirmation Service for Tenth Graders and a joint Graduation Service for Twelfth Graders is held in the spring.

Temple Beth David Tenth and Twelfth Graders participate in a Friday evening Shabbat Service in the spring.
