A Community of Growth
At Community Jewish High San Diego, we empower students to ask insightful questions, explore disciplinary boundaries and confront conventional ways of thinking. Check out our site to learn more about all that we have to offer.
ABOUT COMMUNITY JEWISH HIGH SAN DIEGO
A partnership between Temple Emanu-El and Tifereth Israel Synagogue, Community Jewish High (CJH) welcomes students in grades 8 - 12. Students affiliated elsewhere, or not affiliated with any congregation, are also welcomed. We're looking forward to an exciting 2022-2023 school year.
We strive to create a community of Jewish teens who learn together and who learn about one another—who will forge connections that will extend beyond the confines of our classrooms.
Our Tuesday evening gatherings include sharing a meal in an informal setting and classes that offer a “little something for everyone.” They include hands-on learning, intellectually stimulating debates, exploring how to answer our most difficult questions and dilemmas and some guidance in life-skills, such as choosing the right college and how to maintain Jewish connections on campus. There is also a hands-on social justice component to our program. Our tradition teaches each of us to lend a hand in tikun olam, in repairing the world.
All Jewish students in grades 8-12, whether synagogue members or not, are welcome. Join us in partnering in the continued development of life-ready and lifetime learners while looking through a Jewish lens.
WEEKLY CLASS SCHEDULE
Our instructional time takes place from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m on most Tuesday evenings throughout the school year. An optional dinner begins at 5:45 p.m. Often, during dinner, a group of students gather to enjoy Dungeons and Dragons. New participants are always welcome to join us! Classes meet at Temple Emanu-El.
Core classes (by grade) have a specific focus and allow students to explore a wide variety of topics. Our electives offer students a broad spectrum of topics to choose from throughout the year. Whatever it is, we're going to be learning and enjoying our time together.
