Friday Enrichment Program
The Friday Enrichment Program is comprised of weekly events that complement the academic curriculum.
Students participate in targeted workshops and lectures, welcome special guest speakers and attend theatre performances and exhibitions. These are done to give them a wider perspective regarding the topics discussed in lessons.
Here are some examples of past Friday enrichment events:
- A meeting with Halina Birenbaum, Holocaust survivor, writer and translator – an extraordinary chance to view history through the eyes of someone who participated in it, giving students access to a unique and unfamiliar perspective on historical events.
- Workshops focusing on the United States presidential election campaign and the election itself – a deeper look into the practices and politics of one of the year’s most important events.
- Theatre and cinema – performances attended alongside study of the original works yielding material for class discussions and different interpretations of the same work.
