Judaic High Program


Shalom Parents and Students, 

Meet our new director and facilitator for the Judaic High program, Hanna Switlekowski. Hanna is looking forward to engaging in conversation and connecting with our Judaic High students, hoping to create a kehillah (community). She is currently serving on the Sharon Select Board after being elected as the youngest select-person in the town’s history. Hanna double majored in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and Politics at Brandeis University in 2013. She went on to earn her Master's in Public Administration at Northeastern University.  In her free time, she serves on the board of the Jewish Alliance for Law & Social Action, is a community representative on the Jewish Community Relations Council, and is membership chair of the Sharon Lions Club. Hanna also loves theater & the performing arts, enjoys running, and is a huge Boston sports fan. She is extremely excited to get to know our students, to build relationships, and to help our program grow. We have a lot of exciting classes and social opportunities in the future..  

Please see attached registration forms for the program. The program is will open with a sufficient number of registered students, so please sign-up ASAP.
