HEC Background

The Halacha Education Center (HEC) was founded in 2008 by Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon, the Rabbi of Alon Shvut South and a teacher at Yeshivat Har Etzion. Its mission is to inspire students and communities to connect to Jewish tradition. The HEC creates innovative Jewish educational materials and orchestrates programming for Jewish learning institutions in Israel, Latin America, Spain and North America.

The Halacha Education Center works with the Jewish Agency, the Israeli Ministry of Education, and the AMIT school system.

We currently provide over 1,000 students in the United States from the following schools with textbooks and curriculums: Margolin Hebrew Academy, SAR High School, YULA Boys High School, Denver Academy of Torah, Rav Teitz Mesivta Academy, Yeshivat Yavne, Bruria Girls High school, Kushner Yeshiva High School, Fuchs Mizrachi Cleveland, Columbus Jewish Day School, and Kadimah School of Buffalo. We also offer training sessions to teachers on how to use our educational materials.
