GRADES 2ND THROUGH 6TH

Judaica: (Every Sunday 9:30-11:45)

As students enter their classrooms on Sunday mornings, they will feel a welcoming and engaging ruach (spirit/energy). During this time, grade level teachers provide them with fun, engaging lessons on the appropriate themes for that grade.

Judaica class time is enhanced by enrichment courses. Enrichments include conversational Hebrew, Israeli dancing, & music. In addition, students participate in chuggim- student chosen electives - each of which bring Jewish tradition to life through active learning. Chuggim include: Jewish art, drama, teva (nature and group building), cooking, and more.

Hebrew Options (3rd - 6th grades)

Sunday Hebrew Chavurah (8:00-9:25)

Our Sunday Hebrew program meets once a week before Sunday Judaica. Students in Sunday Hebrew have two teachers in their classroom, allowing students to benefit from small group instruction, community building and connection forming with their peers and, of course, with their teachers!

Tuesday Hebrew Chavurah (4:45-6:15)

This is our 2-day a week program. In addition to Sunday Judaica,
students attend on Tuesday afternoons for Hebrew. We place students in small groups based on Hebrew fluency, not grade. Alef (1st level), Bet (2nd level), Gimel/Dalet (3rd/4th level). 

Another benefit to this program is that the levels are fluid and students can move levels throughout the year, based on their understanding and mastery of the Hebrew language and prayers. Students in the Tuesday program join together in a T’fillah/prayer time giving them twice as much exposure to the prayers and the melodies as the Sunday program offers.

Individual Hebrew Instruction
(scheduled based on your availability)

This program is for students who attend Sunday Judaica, but are unable to attend traditional classroom Hebrew on Sundays or Tuesdays. Our staff pairs students up with a SHM teacher for at home, once a week, individual 45 minute lessons. If you are interested in this program, you must fill out an Individual Instruction form, so that we can best match you up with the appropriate teacher to fit the needs of your child(ren).

Tuesday Hebrew Tutoring- 4:45-6:15 pm

DOES YOUR CHILD NEED SOME EXTRA PRACTICE WITH THEIR HEBREW SKILLS?

This year, there is a tutoring option for our Hebrew students who need some extra help. This tutoring is offered only on Tuesday nights and is a 45 minute block of time during which a student can be tutored by an adult with years of experience. 

Cost is $15 per 45-minute session and must be booked through the Principal by Monday of the week that tutoring is needed.
