Community Jewish High

Be a part of the Community Jewish High of San Diego!

We strive to create a community of Jewish teens who learn together and who learn about one another—who will forge connections that will extend beyond the confines of our classrooms.null

Our Tuesday evening gatherings include sharing a meal in an informal setting and classes that offer a “little something for everyone”. They include hands-on learning, intellectually stimulating debates, exploring how to answer our most difficult questions and dilemmas and some guidance in life-skills, such as choosing the right college and how to maintain Jewish connections on campus.

There is also a hands-on social justice component to our program. Our tradition teaches each of us to lend a hand in tikkun olam, in repairing the world. All Jewish students in grades 8-12, whether synagogue members or not, are welcome.

Dear CJH Families,
We’re excited to greet our students in October 2021 with an anticipated return to “normalcy” within our CJH community. Enjoying pizza dinner, socializing, learning, and more are our goal while creating a strong sense of community. With this in mind, an ad-hoc Medical Committee was formed with members from both Temple Emanu-El and Tifereth Israel Synagogue.
The ad-hoc CJH Medical Committee has decided, for 2021-2022 school year, that the following safeguards must be in place for all faculty and students:

  • Complete and up-to-date routine immunizations.
  • Proof of full COVID 19 vaccination – This means two weeks after the second Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or after single dose vaccine such as Johnson and Johnson.
  • If possible, please send all documentation of immunizations and the COVID 19 vaccination with your registration. Otherwise, documentation must be received by the CJH Administrator at least one week prior to the opening of the school year.

All those who meet these requirements will not need to wear a mask or socially distance, and can fully participate in all activities including dinner.
If there is a medical reason not to immunize or vaccinate, a letter from a medical doctor must be submitted to the CJH administrator identifying the medical basis for this exemption. The CJH administrator will share the letter with the CJH Medical Committee to determine if the information contained within the letter is sufficient to constitute an exemption to this enrollment requirement.
For those who may be admitted to CJH but are not immunized due to documented medical reasons, masks and social distancing will be required. Dinner arrangements will be made.
FOR ALL STUDENTS: While temperatures will not be taken, an attestation that students arriving each week are symptom free is required of each attendee.
While it is our hope and intention to spend the entire school year in-person, CJH reserves the right to close in-person learning and return to a virtual platform. This would happen only if there is a significant change in the current COVID 19 situation. This decision would be made by the CJH Medical Committee in conjunction with the CJH Administrator and input from the partnering synagogues’ rabbis.
