Starting in the fourth grade, students are expected to extend their learning to include Hebrew language instruction. This can be done in two ways: in person, or online.
Sundays: 11am-12pm / Tuesdays: 5:45-6:45pm
Many families with students in 4th-6th grade will choose to extend their religious school day with an hour of in-person, small-group Hebrew learning. Over the years, we have found that smaller class sizes and individualized attention is the key to maximizing learning, and helping our students transition into preparation for b’nei mitzvah. Please note: Space is limited!
We are happy to offer opportunities throughout the week for online Hebrew learning opportunities, whether in small groups (max 4:1) or individually with a teacher. We recommend this option to our Sababa students, and to those students who feel "behind" or who know they may have difficulty achieving consistent Sunday or Tuesday attendance.
After you register for online Hebrew lessons, we will contact you separately to schedule your online Hebrew sessions. We ask that you choose a day of the week and time that will work with your child’s schedule for the entirety of the school year. Please note, given our educational goal to create class groupings with students at similar levels, we may not be able to accommodate certain friend requests.
Please note: there will be an additional fee for 1:1 Hebrew learning.
While your 4th-6th grader is in Hebrew class (Sunday 11am-12pm or Tuesday 5:45-6:45pm), their younger siblings who are in K-3 can attend TJ’s POWER HOUR! It’s an hour of creative, supervised fun for a nominal fee, so you don’t have to pick up twice! Please be in touch with our office for more information.
If your rising 5th/6th grade student feels like they need extra help or tutoring, we will make a “Hebrew Boot Camp” class available for an additional fee. We HIGHLY suggest this summer Hebrew review to help get your student back on track for b'nei mitzvah preparation. Please be in touch with our office for more information.
