The members of Student Government act as a voice for the student body, are role models, help build community, and develop a culture of inclusion, trust, and creativity at Kehillah.
Students serving on Student Government have opportunities to foster school spirit, plan holiday celebrations, lead a weekly all-school assembly that meets on Fridays (KabShab, short for Kabbalat Shabbat, Hebrew for “Welcoming the Sabbath”), organize school-wide community service initiatives, communicate school events to the student body, design and sell school apparel, organize fundraisers, and act as a liaison between the student body and school staff.

Make Friends and Allies & Make a Difference!
GSA Clubs, or GSAs for short, are student-run organizations that unite LGBTQ+ and allied youth to build community and organize around issues impacting them in their schools and communities. GSAs have evolved beyond their traditional role to serve as safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in middle schools and high schools, and have emerged as vehicles for deep social change related to racial, gender, and educational justice.
A growing body of research confirms that the presence of a GSA has a positive and lasting effect on student health, wellness, and academic performance.

Jewish life is by the student body for the student body, which creates a distinctly communal and creative atmosphere.

WOMEN IN SCIENCE CLUB
WIS aspires to inspire. The Women in Science Club (WIS), founded and run at Kehillah by Sophie Burkhardt aspires to inspire. In hopes of closing the gender gap in the sciences, the club invites women who excel in their profession to come speak about what they do, and how they got to where they are. They tell their story, their accomplishments, and their struggles. After hearing their words, we get to ask questions we have, in order to find out if this profession interests us. ? Not everyone could make it to every meeting, but still wanted to hear what the speaker for the week had to say, so I began sending recordings to members who missed the meetings. After a little thinking, I decided to create a blog, so the world could listen to what these inspirations have to say. ? Hopefully this page helps you find out what interests you in the sciences and offers you advice on choosing any profession, from people who have years of experience and knowledge.
Help make memories
