Our excursions are outside-the-classroom experiences where our students go places together and live Kehillah’s Four Commitments. Our all-school opening retreat (Kinnus), community partnerships, and each of our grade-level trips, provide many of the highlights of the year. Each excursion helps our students become citizens of the world, socially aware, engaged, and working for a more just and kind world. Through these learning opportunities, our actions are guided by compassion, critical thinking, and Jewish values.
While COVID affected our school’s typical programming we found fantastic ways to stay interested, engaged and involved. One such endeavor was our Deep Dives Projects, to read more and view these incredible pieces, click: Deep Dives 🌊
The first days of the school year are dedicated to Kinnus, an all-school retreat. Kinnus means gathering in Hebrew. The days of Kinnus are focused on welcoming new students, bonding, games, and school spirit! Students will meet teachers, connect with peers in different grades, and form lasting bonds with their classmates in this fun-filled start of school. One evening is devoted to a local, senior class overnight.
Kehillah Community Service Day
During the year, we dedicate time for community partnerships. In previous years, we have worked to alleviate food and housing insecurity, clean up beaches and parks, and support social action throughout the Bay Area.
Every spring, each grade takes a unique educational trip. The four-year grade-level trip curriculum builds on our academic program through direct experience and exposure to diverse communities with an emphasis on students taking responsibility for their own learning.
