Eisav is compared to a pig the reason, because like a pig that likes to flaunt his Kosher sign - split hooves as if to proclaim, "Hey look at me I’m kosher" (although as we all know a pig is most certainly not kosher for he lacks the 2nd sign – chewing his cud) so too Eisav would try to conceal his evil nature...

Parshas Noach begins with what should be a description of Noach’s family. However, we see that the pasuk introducing his “Toldos," or offspring, is interrupted with an assessment of his character. Rashi famously answers this question by explaining that the pasuk is trying to teach us that the main progeny of the righteous are good deeds. ..

If you open any translation of this week’s Torah reading, it will likely begin: “If you go out to war against your enemies.” But if you look at the original Hebrew, you will see that this is only an approximate rendition. “Al”, the Hebrew word translated as “against,” really means “over” or...

In this week's Parasha, named appropriately Shoftim, which means Judges or rulers (or even alludes to kings), we learn about some details of appointing a king, and what are his requirements. One of the more detailed expectation of a king is to actually write a sefer Torah and have it readily accessible. This idea seems strange at first, because many of us do not equate kings to rabbinic leaders. There are spiritual leaders (such as Rabbis) and Kings, to rule the land, to judge, to battle in war...

By Dr. Ami Eskanos, Dean of Admissions: Admit it! You understand why summer reading assignments are necessary, but you really don’t want to deal with it and making your child read is not fun for you. Dean of Admission Confession: When my kids were little I felt the same way…and I’m an educator! I get it. Summers are meant to be joyful and carefree for kids. No rush to get to school on time, lazy mornings sleeping in (for the kids anyhow), trips to the park, camp, swimming, ice cream, picnics, summer vacay. These are not activities that scream, “Let’s do homework!”

By Sergio Carmona, Sun Sentinel/Jewish Journal, June 8, 2017: Enthusiastic second grade students of the Hebrew Academy (RASG) in Miami Beach took their parents' orders and served them food such as pasta, salad, grilled cheese, waffles, s'mores and brownies at an end of the year math project called "Mathelicious." The project was a restaurant called "Beauty and the Feast Café" opened for a day and intended to teach the students the importance of math in their everyday lives as they not only took orders, but totaled the charges and separated tips. The students prepared lunch items and turned the classroom into a café while serving as hosts/hostesses, waiters, kitchen staff and cashiers.

Eighth grade students in Jenny Ohana's class had the tremendous honor of corresponding with Elisha Wiesel, son of Elie Wiesel. Having completed the memoir Night, students then read Elisha Wiesel's Yom Hashoah speech given at the March of the Living. Their responses were so powerful and articulate that I wanted to share them with Mr. Wiesel when I learned that we had someone who could facilitate the interaction. Mr. Wiesel responded immediately with such powerful and inspiring words for the students.

Each year, the ISSF recognizes outstanding students from its member schools. This year, there were approximately 70 schools represented. An ISSF Star Student should be an exemplary student. He or she should be a student who sets an example for others to follow, whether in the home, school or community. The students should have excelled in one or more of these areas: academics, community service, citizenship, fine art, athletics, student activities, perseverance, effort, dedication, commitment to positive goals, improvement in performance, and attitude. Mazel tov to our 2016-2017 ISSF Star Students: Leora Bossewitch Grade 5 - Elementary School Division Alina Sterenfeld Grade 8 - Middle School Division Raquel Zohar Grade 10 - High School Division

The Hebrew Academy (RASG) Fana Holtz High School NCSY JUMP Team took home first place nationally after presenting their year long efforts at the Goldman Sachs Board Room on April 4th in New York City! This is the third time the Warriors have presented at Goldman Sachs and the second time they took home the trophy. The team of eight hardworking students have dedicated the last year in creating social campaigns and meaningful programs in the community. They were 1 of 5 teams, and the only school in Florida, who were invited to the famous board room of Goldman Sachs where a panel of guest judges heard their presentations and the impacts their campaigns have had on their school and community. The four other schools were Ulpana, DRS Yeshiva High School, Shalhevet, and Central High Queens.

Join us for Hebrew Academy's High School production of Class Action on April 2nd! This play has won critical acclaim for its entertaining yet relevant and realistic portrayal of life at a High School. Although each scene stands on its own, there is a common thread - all of the vignettes deal with situations that take place outside the classroom, perhaps the most important experiences that young people deal with while attending High School.
