Hebrew Curriculum

Our Hebrew Program philosophy is students learn better in small groups with hands on activities to promote multisensory learning. Students learn better with feedback on a regular basis from their teachers. Students will learn better with practice between sessions.

Hebrew Goals

  • Students will learn and decode the Aleph Bet
  • Students will put letters and vowels to form syllables/words 
  • Students will recognize and understand the Blessing formula (Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech haolam) 
  • Students will recognize the structure of Hebrew words (prefixes, suffixes, and root words) 
  • Students will be able to decode prayers unfamiliar to themselves 
  • Students will have a solid foundation of the prayer service of our congregation 
  • Students will understand Hebrew connects all Jews
