URJ Heller High provides a unique and powerful Reform Jewish community on the campus of Alexander Muss High School in Israel. While students enjoy the full Muss experience, they have additional experiences as part of Heller High.
Students at URJ Heller High are part of a powerful and close knit community on the larger AMHSI campus. With the support of our Director, Rabbi Orli Moss, students gather regularlary, build life-long friendships, and explore Israel through a unique Reform Jewish lens.
Much of the joy of exploring ancient and modern Israel is in sharing this experience with peers from Reform congregations across North America. This special group of Reform Jewish teens creates a dynamic Jewish community while together in Israel. The celebration of Shabbat and special events of the Jewish calendar enhances their sense of togetherness and highlights the value of Jewish life in the Jewish homeland. Taking time to stop, think, feel, and be thankful through tefillah (prayer) contributes to the growth of the individual and the kehillah (community). It is intended that the unparalleled experience that Heller High has to offer will encourage active involvement in congregational synagogue and Jewish life for years to come.
