Harry B. Kellman Academy - About Kellman Academy
Kellman provides a well-rounded academic program and an encouraging and supportive environment that meets the need of the whole child.Academics are demanding and rewarding.Activities are accessible and diverse.Jewish studies, traditions, and values are so well-integrated into the student's daily life that there is a natural evolution of the child's sense of Jewish identity.A new Havrutah program has been initiated to help students with special learning needs.Kellman produces tomorrow's committed Jews as well as tomorrow's scholars and professionals.And with an emphasis on self-esteem, mitzvot , and critical thinking, Kellman also produces tomorrow's community leaders.A state accredited Hebrew day school founded in 1958, Kellman is a charter member of the Solomon Schechter Day School Association, and adheres to the basic philosophy of Solomon Schechter: to preserve and enrich Jewish identity while strengthening American ideals through academic excellence.The Academy was founded by Rabbi Harry B. Kellman in 1958 as the Beth El Academy.Rabbi Kellman with his vision and pioneering spirit saw the need for intensive Jewish education in South Jersey. The school was renamed the Harry B. Kellman Academy in 1968 in honor of Rabbi Kellman when he announced his retirement as spiritual leader of Congregation Beth El.The first class of the middle school was graduated in June 1970.Thirty-eight years after Rabbi Furman's arrival Kellman Academy had an enrollment of over 280 students and today has more than 300 students enrolled and continues to grow. In March 1998, at Rabbi Furman's retirement dinner, the Middle School, which he founded, was dedicated "The Rabbi Isaac Furman Middle School."
The search ended in July of that year with the choice of Rabbi Harry B. Kellman.Rabbi Kellman originally from Philadelphia, had graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1927 and the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1931.Following his service as an army chaplain in World War II, he became rabbi at Beth Israel in Vineland, New Jersey, for seventeen years.Rabbi Kellman had already established wide reputation as an "orator of note".
Jewish day school to observe Shavuot with new Torah
Kellman will soon begin a search for its own location as an independent school.So, Kellman launched a successful fundraising campaign for its own, newly inscribed Torah.The scroll will first be read from today, the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which fittingly commemorates when God gave Moses the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai.Even without Beth El's impending move, it was time for the break, said Karen Chast, mother of two Kellman students and co-chairwoman of the school's Torah Fund Committee."When Kellman began, it was predominantly made up of students whose families belonged to Beth El.When the synagogue relocated from Camden to Cherry Hill in 1968, the school took on the name of longtime Beth El Rabbi Harry B. Kellman, who retired about the same time.Kellman became independent on May 1.Kellman also plans to move east, nearer to where most of today's students live.On May 22, Druin's father, Rabbi Gedaliah Druin, returned the nearly completed Torah to Kellman for the dedication ceremony, with the last 120 characters left undone.The yad and video were sent overnight back to Kellman for the ceremony.Kellman really teaches us the morals and ethics of Judaism so we can live in the world, and live well," Alexander said.
