Hebrew

Beginning with letter recognition for our youngest children, this program leads them through phonetic decoding, reading comprehension and writing. We utilize the world renown Aleph Champ Hebrew Reading Program which really motivates the children to excel in their Hebrew reading skills. Our goal is that every child be comfortable with basic conversational Hebrew and be comfortable with the basic Prayers.

Torah (Bible) and Jewish History

The children are introduced to the characters and stories of the Bible. They are given an overview of Jewish history starting with creation to the giving of the Torah to modern day Israel.

Holidays

Hands-on lessons on each Jewish holiday provide students with a deeper understanding of holidays, traditions and customs. Chabad of Green Valley Hebrew School will also host holiday celebrations for our students and their families.

Jewish Values and Ethics

Using Various textbooks the students will read and discuss stories and case scenarios that have practical application to our every day life. They will understand that our religion is based on G‑d given set of values and morals and that the “norm” is not always in the right.

Mitzvot: Why We Do What We Do

Why do women light Shabbat candles? Why is Shabbat such a special day in the week? Why do we have a Mezuzah on our doors? This class will teach basic Mitzvot to the younger grades and provide insightful meaning of more complex Mitzvot to the older grades.

Current Events and Israel

The students of Chabad Hebrew School will follow any current event concerning Jewish issues and Israel. Students are encouraged to bring in newspaper clippings, and discussions will follow, keeping our students well informed of the world and its relationship to the Jewish people.

Arts and Crafts

Art projects  are incorporated into our curriculum to add excitement to the upcoming holidays and Mitzvot. Our projects will have Jewish holiday and Mitzvot themes and will add a taste of Jewish life at home. The younger students will be doing art more often than the older grades.

Extra Curricular

Chabad of Green Valley Hebrew School will offer a variety of extra curricular activities such as special guests, Friday night dinners, field trips and contests. These events will allow our students to experience Judaism in its entirety, both in and out of the classroom. More details will follow once the school year begins.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Training 

As the students near the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah, they will be given special training to prepare them in a meaningful way for the special event. The training for Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah are not identical.

This program is offered separately from our Hebrew School. If you are interested please call Rabbi Mendy Harlig at  at 617 - 0770.
