the underpinnings of our curriculum
Why Our Focus on Jewish Identity
Plato Said:
“Education’s First Stages Determine A Person’s Future Life.”
This means that we, parents and teachers, are affecting eternity. The education we provide our children today affects them forever. What an awesome responsibility we are carrying!

What constitutes a quality education? Surely, in this age of information, a good education is not only about building knowledge or honing skills (though that is surely important too.) The ever important goal is to build the child’s identity, the child’s sense of self. For it is with our fundamental sense of self that we approach every aspect of our lives. For Jewish children, their sense of self is intrinsically bound to their Jewish identity. It stands to reason: If a child needs a positive self-image, a Jewish child needs a positive Judaic image.
Our Primary Objective in Hebrew School
''To Transmit The Beauty Of Judaism, Connecting The Child To Their Heritage"
To foster positive feelings towards Judaism and a feeling of pride, familiarity and love for being Jewish, and a sense of belonging to the Jewish community, the Jewish people and Israel.
To build knowledge of mitzvot and Jewish traditions, Torah stories, and Jewish values with hands-on experiences and discussions.
To gain the skill of Hebrew reading.
To encourage students to express their opinions and ask questions about the Torah in today’s day and age, finding relevance to their lives.
Hebrew Reading Curriculum
We Believe That Lessons Must Incorporate Hands-On Activities (Cooking, Crafts, Song), Discussions, And Texts. They Must Have Practical Relevance To The Student’s Lives, With Provocations To Inspire Them To Look Beyond Themselves. We Are 100% Committed To Creating An Environment For Our Students And Their Families To Flourish And To Connect. We Look Forward To A Wonderful Year Together, Partnering With You To Fashion Our Children’s Judaic Experience.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah Division
Time of My Life
At Chabad Hebrew School, we view Bar/Bat Mitzvah as a means to an end, not an end in itself.When a child turns Bar or Bat Mitzvah, it is the beginning of a lifetime journey into Judaism. Wehave therefore created a very unique curriculum for our B’nai Mitzvah, our goal being to fosterawareness that this milestone is only the beginning of Jewish life, not the end, and to help ourstudents attain a greater appreciation of the responsibilities of a Jewish adult.
This Course Uses The Macrocosmic Journey Of The Jewish People, From The Birth Of Abraham And Sarah, Until The Time When Jews Entered The Land Of Israel, As A Paradigm To Explore The Microcosmic Journey Of The Individual In His Or Her Personal Relationship With G-D.
