EW LANGUAGE / ALEF BET:
Our Hebrew reading curriculum is based on the internationally acclaimed Aleph ChampionTM Reading Program. This highly motivational system provides excitement and inspiration, leading the students into a winning cycle of learning. Hebrew vocabulary is a basic part of our program - children will learn Hebrew words related to current themes.
MITZVOT & JEWISH ETHICS:
What is the reason for affixing a mezuzah on the door? What makes an animal Kosher? Why is Shabbat a special day in the week? This class will teach basic mitzvot to the younger grades and provide insightful meaning of more complex mitzvot to the older grades.
Children will learn to appreciate the special quality and holiness of our Holidays. They will become familiar with the historical background, customs, and observances of each festival through interactive workshops, activities and projects.
Children will be taught our beautiful and insightful history, and will glean morals and ethics from the heroes highlighted in the Torah. They will be given an overview of Jewish history, starting with creation, continuing with the giving of the Torah, and finishing with a glimpse at modern day Israel.
BAR / BAT MITZVAH TRAINING: (Private)
As students near the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah, they will be given special training to prepare for this important milestone in a meaningful way. We offer this as a supplement program to our Hebrew School. If you are interested, please call the office.
