Hebrew Education

Our Hebrew curriculum seeks to offer students an exciting introduction to the Hebrew language and to actively engage the students in their Hebrew studies.  New this year, we are introducing an innovative and exciting new approach to our Hebrew education: 

Our Hebrew curriculum will now include “Hebrew through Movement”, a program through which students learn Hebrew by learning and responding to Hebrew commands.  Hebrew through Movement introduces language in a playful and meaningful way, creating a positive link between children and the Hebrew language. 

Our Hebrew decoding program, for students in Grades 4-6, has been re-designed to ensure motivation, consistency and focus in learning to decode and read Hebrew.  Students will work in small group settings to provide them with greater teacher attention and a smaller class environment. 

Lastly, we are incorporating “Jewish Life Vocabulary” into all classes and programs.  One important way that American Jews connect to the Hebrew language is through key Hebrew words and phrases (such as shalom, mazel tov, tikkun olam and more).  By learning, using and exploring Hebrew terms, our students will experience the world through Jewish values as they develop a greater connection to and understanding for the Hebrew language.

The overarching goals of the Hebrew program are:

  1. To provide students with a solid foundation in reading/decoding the Hebrew language.
  2. To have students excited about and engaged in their Hebrew studies.
  3. For students to see Hebrew as a living language.
  4. For students to feel comfortable and able to participate in Jewish prayer.


Please feel free to be in touch with the Director of Education for further information or details about your child’s Hebrew education.
