Alumna Profile: Josie Berman, Heilicher ('12): Maccabiah Athlete

As a young person swimming with the Rays Swim Team at the Sabes Jewish Community Center, Josie Berman never imagined having the opportunity to represent her country in an international athletic competition. This past summer, however, Josie had the opportunity to do just that, competing as a member of the USA Water Polo Team at the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel (often referred to as the "Jewish Olympics"). 

The Kaplan Family: Reflections on A Day School Experience

Driving across the Twin Cities during the fall colors is always beautiful. Especially beautiful when crossing the river. Each day, during the school year, the Kaplan family did just that on their way to the Heilicher Minneapolis Jewish Day School. The Kaplan family's journey with day school began when Jennifer and her husband Bob were exploring kindergarten options for their eldest daughter.
