Through our lessons, kids will develop a strong foundation in Hebrew reading and writing, as well as gain an understanding of the meaning and purpose behind Jewish prayers.

Hebrew School


A Sweet New Year

The school year begins with an apple picking field trip to Lynd Fruit Farm in Pataskala, OH in preparation for Rosh Hashanah. Apples and honey are served, in part, to symbolize our hopes for a sweet and fruitful new year.

Let's Discover the Alef Bet

Children learn the names and sounds of the letters of the Alef Bet; and a key Hebrew word, with an accompanying English translation and Jewish cultural explanation, is used to introduce each letter. Learning strategies include creative activities to reinforce the shape and sound of each letter, the introduction of additional Hebrew vocabulary words, playful exercises to engage the child's artistic and creative interests, and clever riddles to amuse.

Derech Binah: The Hebrew Primer


Our Hebrew School lifelong learners use resources from the classic Behrman House Curriculum.

Hundreds of thousands of children have learned to read Hebrew using this properly paced primer. It features a special focus on visual and auditory discernment between letters, block print writing exercises, reading games, prayer practice and explanation, and playful speed reading, all of which is strategically designed to produce reading fluency.

Hebrew Through Prayer I, II, III

Beginning with the Shabbat morning service, children work their way through the key prayers and blessings of the siddur, focusing on root, prefix, and suffix recognition, the place of prayers in the service, the physical actions associated with the prayers, and more importantly the themes, meaning, and relevance.
