Life-long Friendships and Learning: The Rashi and Leo Baeck Connection

It was a Friday afternoon as students and parents filed into Rashi’s auditorium. The atmosphere was filled with excitement and energy, but also some apprehension and maybe even a little sadness. 
The occasion? 

We were saying good-bye to our eighth-grade students who would be gone for two weeks. Destination: Israel.

Through our ongoing relationship with the Leo Baeck School in Haifa, our eighth-graders and their Israeli peers travel and learn together in both Israel and the Boston area. These travels create real and lasting relationships – emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually – between the students and their families. In many cases, the students come to see Boston or Haifa as their second home.
