About The Event

On February 14, 2018, at 9:35 a.m., Kehillah will join with activists around the world for One Billion Rising in Solidarity. This year, the students involved have created a powerful and poignant program that shines a light on this difficult topic and inspires our community to stand up against such atrocities. Prior to February 14, we will have programing in advisory. We will begin by showing a TED talk, then follow up with a discussion about the shared responsibility of our community. The program on Wednesday will review global statistics and then zoom in to current events, examine cultural norms, and discuss situations students potentially witness every day that could be exacerbating the problem. We will then invite everyone to sit, stand, dance, or simply be present to show their support for the cause – ending violence against women and girls.

About The Organization

Kehillah Jewish High School

Kehillah Jewish High School is distinguished by an exceptional academic program and a supportive environment that pairs rich traditions with the best of the Silicon Valley mindset. At Kehillah, students embark on a journey of self-discovery guided by a community of passionate educators. They graduate with the knowledge, values, and community that enable them to create extraordinary futures. Kehillah’s four commitments:
1) Everyone Counts
We embrace the diversity of our student community by ensuring that every member knows that they count.
2) Everyone Has Equal Access To Great Learning
Embracing the diversity of our student body, we educate to each student and recognize that each student has a unique learning style.
3) Everyone’s Unique Talents Are Valued Equally
Some students are strong in math, others great writers. Some students have a great jump-shot while others produce breathtaking art. Some students are gregarious, while others choose quietude. We recognize this diversity and affirm that we are the better for it.
4) We Take Responsibility For Ourselves, Our Learning, And Our Community
We look to our diverse community and ask each member to step up and take ownership of their learning, of their school, and of their community.
