Hebrew is the language of the Jewish people. It is the language of the Torah, the language of our prayers, and the language spoken in our homeland, Israel. Hebrew language is part of the curriculum at Temple Beth Shalom from kindergarten through high school, whether it is learning the Hebrew aleph-bet (alphabet), prayers, or vocabulary used in Israel today.

  • The Hebrew Aleph-Bet and Modern Hebrew are introduced to our 2nd graders during Sunday Religious School as part of our Israel Curriculum through Hebrew-Through-Movement, an interactive program based on the latest brain research on learning.
  • In the 3rd grade, students begin attending mid-week Hebrew school.
  • Our 4th – 6th graders learn the prayers that are part of our daily, Shabbat, and holiday observances. At Temple Beth Shalom we enable students to understand the service liturgy and to develop into capable adults who feel comfortable praying in any Jewish setting and leading services in a Reform Jewish context.
  • Students in 7th grade are not required to attend Hebrew School and are instead expected to work independently with their bar/bat mitzvah tutor. However, any 7th grade students may participate in a smaller 7th grade Hebrew cohort on Wednesday evenings if they choose to.
