Basic Curriculum Overview

Hebrew Reading: The Hebrew reading program will give your child the necessary tools to become a confident reader. We follow the Aleph Champ Reading curriculum, where each child progresses from level to level as s/he masters the Hebrew letters, then vowels and finally reading complete prayers. The Aleph Champ adopted the color system used in karate - "white belt" to "black belt" - to motivate Hebrew reading and add that touch of excitement! The children will receive awards with each passing level!


Jewish Holidays: We will explore the traditions and customs of Shabbat and the Jewish Holidays. Hands-on lessons for each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we begin with learning about the High Holidays and continue throughout the entire school year. By the end of the year, the students will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of each holiday, it's traditions and customs. Art projects, crafts and special workshops will bring our holidays to life and enable the children to bring home a taste of Jewish Culture. 


Torah, Jewish History & Israel: The children will be introduced to the character and stories of the Torah. An overview of Jewish history starting with creation to the giving of the Torah to modern day Israel will be taught through interactive stories and projects. The students will gain an appreciation for our heritage and culture that has been preserved throughout the ages. They will also attain affection for the uniqueness of Israel, our homeland.
