Beit Chaverim Un-Hebrew School!
A revolutionary way to make sure that every child has access to a real Jewish education!
Face it- most of us grew up hating Hebrew School, and saw Bar/Bat Mitzvah as a culmination of Jewish education, rather than the beginning of a life long engagement with Judaism.
At Beit Chaverim's Un-Hebrew School, we GUARANTEE that your child will love learning Hebrew, Jewish holidays and history, and embrace the responsibility of every Jew to actively work to make our world a better place.
How can we guarantee this? Our unique one on one relationship ensures that your child is constantly engaged, never frustrated,bored, lost, or feeling that she is not the focus of the class. Our child centered approach means that your child's interests will serve as the entry point to their learning, as we incorporate Hebrew skills, Jewish calendar and values seamlessly into the strong relationship between teacher and student.
Our one on one approach allows us to accommodate students with special learning issues- please contact us for a consultation.
Our teachers are knowledgable, deeply committed and passionate college or graduate students, who all have post secondary seminary and yeshiva educations, many majoring in Jewish Education at Yeshiva University, Touro College and other top institutions.
Our Hebrew school meets one day per week, and explores Judaism in a loving environment, welcoming everyone regardless of affiliation or background. We are here to open doors to the beauty and excitement of all that Judaism has to offer. We want to make Judaism open, fun, and relevant to kids' lives—creating a space for questions and new experiences.
A good teacher makes all the difference
Our greatest resource at Beit Chaverim Hebrew School is our passionate and devoted teaching staff. Our teachers invest in our students, and those students cherish the relationships they have developed with them. Because we feel that Judaism should be fun and relevant to the lives of our students, we teach one on one, and in small groups with lots of questioning, discussion, and debate. We generally do not use textbooks; our teachers bring their own energy and experience to each topic and model and explain Jewish ideas and traditions as they relate to the real world.
What exactly will my child be doing?
Your child will be having a great time with Jewish friends learning stuff that matters to them. Our youngest students (kindergarten and 1st grade) experience Torah stories and Jewish holidays come to life with songs, music, and arts and crafts. Our middle students (2nd and 3rd grade) learn Hebrew letters and pronunciation while learning about Jewish values, holidays and customs through fun activities. Our oldest students (4th grade through 7th grade) develop their Hebrew proficiency and awareness of Jewish issues and ideas through child centered approach attuned to their interests and abilities. This guarantees the students are constantly engaged, and delighted!
