Hebrew 

Goals and OutcomesBeginning with letter recognition, this program leads students through phonetic decoding, reading comprehension, and grammar concepts until they reach Hebrew literacy. Our goal is that every child will be comfortable with basic conversational Hebrew and be fluent and comfortable with the basic prayers in the Prayer book.

Torah and Jewish History 
Our Torah class is a review of the weekly Torah portion. This subject will provide our students with an overview of each portion, its highlights, and practical lessons that apply to our daily lives. Our history course will take the students from Creation to the giving of the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai.
 
Holidays 
Lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashana and the High Holidays through the holiday of Shavuot. The students will have a deeper understanding of each holiday, its traditions and customs. Chabad Hebrew School will also host holiday celebrations for our students and their families.
 
Jewish Values and Ethics 
Students will discuss stories and case scenarios that have practical application to our every day life. They will understand that our religion is based on a G‑d given set of values and morals and that the “norm” is not always in the right. This course will involve home discussions and surveys as well as other extra-curricular activities.
 
Mitzvahs: Why We Do What We Do 
Why do Jewish women light Shabbat candles? Why is Shabbat such a special day of the week? Why do we place Mezuzot on our doorposts? Why is the bride veiled at a Jewish wedding? This class will teach basic Mitzvot and provide meaningful insight to them.
 
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 word 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 Mitzvah themes and will add a taste of Jewish life to your home.
 
Extra-Curricular 
Chabad Hebrew School will offer a variety of extra-curricular activities such as special guests, Shabbatons, field trips, contests, etc. These events will allow our students to experience Judaism in its entirety, both in and out of the classroom. A point system based on in-class and out-of-class participation and involvement will allow students to reach different award levels. More details will follow once the school year begins.
