Hebrew School Teachers
Sunday school focuses broadly on Jewish values and study, with the goal of teaching students a strong love for Judaism and a sense of pride in being Jewish. Throughout kindergarten to grade 7, students move through a variety of topics, learning about ethics and values, Jewish history, the land of Israel, and liturgy and holidays.
Hebrew school is a complement to Sunday school and begins with learning the letters and words of the Hebrew language, using them as building blocks in learning to read and chant prayers. Through understanding the prayers of the siddur and their place in worship services, students become knowledgeable about and fluent in the rituals of Jewish life. Hebrew school has a structured curriculum for students in grades 2 through 7, with learning goals for each year.
