Rabbinic Students Visit New Community Jewish High School
Eight rabbinic students and three faculty members from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion recently went back to high school to get a lesson on vision-guided leadership. The rabbinic students from New York and Los Angeles, all in their final year, visited New Community Jewish High School (NCJHS) in West Hills as part of their participation in the Mandell Fellows program, which aims to help them create community based on vision.
Led by professor Sara Lee, director of the Rhea Hirsch School of Education at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles, fellows met with Bruce Powell, NCJHS head of school and students in Powell’s Senior Seminar class, where fellows asked the students about their school, their Jewish identity and commitment to Jewish life.
