Education

Our excellent program of Monday Hebrew School, Sunday Beit Midrash, holiday and Shabbat celebrations provides the best Jewish education possible.

Monday Hebrew School for 1st through 7th grade
Meets weekly from 4:30 to 6:30 PM

  • Kitah Aleph/Bet–1st and 2nd grade: The children develop their knowledge of the aleph-bet, a beginning vocabulary of Hebrew words and prayer.  Our 1st grade class also participates in a Consecration ceremony during Simchat Torah.
  • Kitah Gimel/Dalet–3rd/4th grade: The children begin to read Hebrew and learn Shabbat and weekly prayers.
  • Kitah Hey/Vav–4th through 6th grade: The children continue to work their way from simple brachot and prayers up through the more complicated parts of the Shabbat liturgy, studying not only the Hebrew but the meaning of the prayers.
  • B’nai Mitzvah: The young adults prepare, and study both Torah cantillation and interpretation, as well as related mitzvah work.
