Introducing Merkaz Westport! 

Merkaz Community High School for Judaic Studies is coming to Westport this Fall! Give your teen the gift of Jewish community with fun classes and time to see old friends and make new ones. Merkaz is a weekly educational program open to all Jewish Teens grades 8-12.

Merkaz is truly the place to be for Jewish teens throughout Fairfield County.
