Frankel Religious School
Our mission is to build a vibrant religious school where students live Jewish lives expressed through their actions and values. Interfaith and non-traditional families have an important place at the table of learning in FRS as we engage in continuous learning from babies to bubbies. Our philosophy of education is student-centered because we believe when learning is relevant and meaningful it has the potential to last a lifetime.

Frankel Religious School

The Frankel Religious School creates a foundation for fostering deeper connections to Judaism, Herzl-Ner Tamid, Israel and the modern world. We strive to foster a welcoming and enthusiastic community where all family members can find multiple ways to connect to their congregation social and learning events, parents activates, volunteering, social action, and friendships. We offer school for preschool through 2nd grade on Sundays, 3rd grade through 5th grade on Sundays and weekdays, and 6th grade and 7th grade on weekdays and Saturdays. Our annual Becoming a Leader Trip for middle school students is a three-day summer retreat to learn about Judaism, ecology, and Jewish leadership in the natural world.

High School

High School:

Education after the b’nai mitzvah year is a priority at HNT. There are three components to our high school program:

  1. Madrichim Program: Teens work in the Frankel Religious School as teachers’ assistants, and have a study component on Sundays while students are in the family service. In addition, teens give back to the community as Torah Tutors for B’nai Mitzvah students. Starting in 9th grade, teens are monetarily compensated for their hard work.
  1. USY: United Synagogue Youth is our youth group for our high school students. More information about USY can be accessed on the Teen Activities page.
  1. High School Trips: In the winter of 2016, 15 of our students travelled to New York City on the first ever Gwenn and Dean Polik and Valerie Polack z”l Trip, focused on the Jewish immigrant experience. The idea for these trips is based on the holy work of Bob Zimmerman z”l, to create a community for our teens. Possible trips in future years may include traveling to Miami to interview and document the important message of Holocaust survivors and Washington, D.C. to learn about Jews in politics. We are currently in the process of planning a four-year rotation of trips with the goals of:
  • Broadening the Jewish experiences and deepening the Jewish knowledge of our teens in a compelling and attractive way.
  • Connecting our teens with each other and with the greater Jewish people.
  • Bonding our students with HNT as their home and community, the place they can turn to for friendship and exciting new ideas, and an anchor for helping them make ethical decisions at a critical time in their personal development.

Our teens traveled to Los Angeles to learn about American Celebrity & Jewish Identity in April 2018, preceded by monthly learning experiences throughout the year. Click here for the trip brochure.  Many thanks to Gwenn & Dean Polik for their support of these experiential and educational trips.
