  • Rams for Israel

    Rams For Israel is focused on Israel advocacy and education. Students meet during lunchtime and after school to socialize and learn about Israeli culture, current events, history, and more. Students who choose to take an active part on the board are given many opportunities to strengthen their connection with Israelis through various programs and leadership opportunities.

    Rams For Israel hosts guest speakers throughout the school year and partners with local and national agencies including the Atlanta Israel Coalition and AIPAC.

     “After middle school, joining Rams for Israel gave me the opportunity to learn about Israel from cultural and historical perspectives. Attending AIPAC’s Policy Conference and the Teen Summit with my Rams for Israel and Weber delegation makes me a stronger leader.” Amit Rau, RFI Co-President.

  • Moot Beit Din

    Moot Beit Din provides Weber students with a firsthand look at the inner workings of the Jewish legal system and helps them hone their critical thinking skills by applying the ancient wisdom of halakhah (Jewish law) to some of the most significant ethical issues of our time. Student teams are assigned a topic and collaborate to craft a written decision and oral argument based on rabbinic sources. They then present their ruling to a panel of judges.

  • Mock Trial

    Coached by volunteer attorneys and teachers, teams work together to prepare trial presentations from case materials provided by the High School Mock Trial Committee. In the competition, students play the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a court case. Professional attorneys and judges serve as the presiding judges and juror/evaluators in competition rounds. Teams are evaluated on their ability to make a logical, cohesive and persuasive presentation, rather than on the legal merits of the case.

  • Literary Magazine

    Lit-mag, Weber’s trilingual literary and visual arts magazine, is our contribution to the important arts and cultural tradition of independent literary magazines -- a tradition dating back over 100 years. The magazine is entirely student-produced and peer-reviewed. It publishes contributions in English, Spanish, Hebrew, and visual arts. The creative writing our students produce in Hebrew and Spanish shows the progression of our students as they move beyond rote language foundations and engage in big ideas about identity, culture, and society.
