Our Name

Our name icon

I love my community and its history, and so I named the school in their honour. The name ‘Zehud’, which originates from Judeo-Venetian, means Zechut - Privilege, blends three concepts and words, namely: 1) The ‘Zechut’ (merit) to learn about our Jewish tradition and about our Hebrew language; 2) The ‘Zehut’ (identity) of our Jewish youth which is strengthened by them learning Hebrew and Jewish laws and values, and 3) ‘Yeud’ (destiny), because education is how we change the Jewish world and the choices that we make in our Jewish lives.
