RABBI ARTHUR R. OLEISKY TEEN RECOGNITION AWARD
Designed to both support Jewish teens in their decision to participate in an Israel Experience as well as to recognize excellence in community involvement and leadership, the Rabbi Arthur R. Oleisky award recognizes one outstanding teen with a $500 award towards their Israel Experience program. The award stems from Rabbi Oleisky's passion for the State of Israel and his commitment to sending Jewish teens to Israel. The recipient will be recognized publicly at the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona's Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony at the Tucson Jewish Community Center. The award is open to all Jewish high school students grades 10 and 11 and used in the summer (or on the March of the Living) of the year it is won.
The process to determine this year's recipient consists of an application and personal interview with the awards committee. You will be contacted with your interview date and time soon after the application deadline.

Tucson Hebrew High offers Hebrew language classes accepted in some school districts for one high school language or elective credit per year completed. In order to receive credit, students are required to pass the course by participating in class, completing all assignments and exams (including those missed due to absence), accumulating no more than 2 absences per semester and successfully completing a yearly assessment of mastery of topics. Students receive letter grades which are reflected on high school transcripts. Placement exams are given to all new students; continuing students are expected to advance to the next level of Hebrew. Credit is issued at the end of the school year and students must complete both semesters and have tuition paid in full to receive one credit.
Students enrolled in the Hebrew for Credit program attend Tuesday nights, 5:00-9:00 p.m.
PLEASE NOTE: New student placement exams are completed at registration.
*Amphitheater School requires pre-approval of Hebrew for Credit by the student's counselor and Principal before course work is begun. Some private and charter schools accept credit, see Principal for confirmation. Beginning with fall 2010 freshmen, Catalina Foothills High School no longer accepts Hebrew for high school credit.
Mitzvah Credit Hours make it possible to work Hebrew High into your busy life by providing an alternative learning program for one semester of Judaic Studies classes.
Here is how it works: Each Mitzvah project is given a value depending upon the length of the project, time needed to prepare or train for the project, etc. Values translate to credit hours. Complete 30 credit hours and you earn enough credits to substitute for an entire semester of Tuesday classes. Up to half of these hours can be fulfilled with projects outside Hebrew High with permission from the Principal. (A reduced tuition fee plus formal registration is required during the semester.)
CREDITS: Each completed one-hour class equals one credit. Judaic Studies classes are graded Pass/Fail. Students with outstanding attendance and participation earn honors credit. Hebrew for Credit is a year-long course. Students receive a letter grade in the course which is reflected on their high school transcripts. Students can take any class for credit toward graduation, provided they have not taken the class before.
All students participate in graduation from Hebrew High if they attend their senior year enrolling in a 7:00 Judaic class and the For Seniors Only class during the 8:00 hour. Requirements for a diploma are complete when the student has met the credit requirement (16 credits) and has attended Hebrew High for four consecutive years or has, according to the Principal's discretion, done equivalent work elsewhere*. A Certificate of Recognition is presented in all other cases when the "seniors only" requirement is fulfilled
*Seniors are provided with a breakdown of units completed and requirements for a Diploma of Graduation.
As an alternative to Saturday testing, SAT Exam testing is available at Congregation Anshei Israel on Sundays. If you would like this option, we can help with the process.
Come early to Hebrew High and enjoy dinner, schmoozing with friends, and getting some homework done before class. Free dairy dinner is available from 6:10 to 6:45 in the library.
