Prayers/Davening

Throughout the year in Hebrew School students will master different prayers sung in the traditional Hebrew tunes with the help of a Siddur/Prayer Book. Some famous tunes are Modeh Ani, Mah Tovu, Adon Olam, Shema, Ein Kelokainu, Aleinu, Shabbat & Holiday Prayers. Classical Jewish and Hebrew Songs will be sung throughout the day as well.

Holiday Learning

Students will prepare and learn the customs and meaning of the Jewish Holidays through crafts, songs, and holiday workshops! This year, your child will proudly explain the how and why as they observe and lead your home in the various holiday observances. 

Aleph Champ/Hebrew Reading Program

The Aleph Champ program is based on the motivational philosophy of Martial Arts. Children work their way up this 10-step reading program, beginning as a 'white reader' and ending as a 'black reader' earning medals and prizes along the way. This program provides excitement and inspiration leading the child into a winning cycle of learning until they eventually become a master reader! Reviewing at home during the week is key to success in this program! Read more about Aleph Champ here.

 

Judaic Knowledge Program

Every year our Judaic Knowledge program focuses on a different subject.

This year, the subject title is Shemot - The Birth of Our Nation. It is an invigorating curriculum which explores the birth of the Jewish nation and its basic ethical values. 

(In other years, the Judaic Knowledge Program includes: Everyday Jewish customs, the Biblical history of our forefathers and foremothers and the lessons they left us, and the story of our ancients roots in Israel, the Holy Land.)

Shemot - The Birth of Our Nation

Using educational tools, such as theater, crafts, STEM, and filmmaking, we will be diving deep into the second book of the Torah. From slavery in Egypt through the Ten Plagues, and until the giving of the Torah and its basic ethics, your child will cultivate a strong Jewish identity, Torah values, and be able to flourish emotionally, physically,and mentally. They will know that this is their story and feel a sense of belonging as a part of Jewish history. We are looking forward to exploring this incredible course and growing with you this year!
