Hebrew High School of New England strongly emphasizes service to the community, love of Israel and global citizenship. Students are required to perform a minimum of 60 hours of community service—at least 15 hours each year—over four years in order to graduate, although students often surpass this minimum requirement. The Director of Student Activities regularly announces opportunities for community service in a variety of interest areas and communities.
Students may also opt to participate in the Chesed Club, although they cannot fulfill the requirement through this club alone.
Volunteer hours must be recorded on Community Service Program forms available in the main office or downloadable here.
