General Information and Overall Philosophy:
Our school is a partnership between the synagogue and the home, between the parent body and those who work to educate your children. It is our overarching goal to nurture the soul of every Jewish child and family.
Meet our Religious School Principal, Ellen Marcus.
I am excited to be starting my fourth year as principal at South Huntington Jewish Center. For the past twenty five years I have dedicated myself to Jewish education and the Jewish community. My journey has taken me to Camp Ramah in the Berkshires, several trips to Israel, United Synagogue Youth (USY) Youth Director, Hebrew High School Educator, and Family and Religious School Director. Throughout all these experiences, one thing has been very clear: My love for Judaism and sharing that love with the Jewish community. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with the children and parents of SHJC. Judaism needs to be lived in order to truly appreciated. In the coming year the students will enjoy music, learn Israeli dances, create meaningful art projects, bake challah and hamantashen, eat latkas, make charoset, and present some Biblio dramas all the while learning their Judaism and strengthening their Jewish identity. There is nothing better than Jewish families learning together and making new Jewish connections.
Our people have been on a spiritual journey for the past 5777 years. May G-d grant us another year of health, happiness and strength to continue on this journey. Looking forward to meeting with you in person.
