  • Students entering Aleph (3rd Grade class) begin a more intensive course of study, approximately half of which is dedicated to learning how to read, decode and pray in Hebrew.

  • Once Hebrew decoding is introduced, the focus turns to familiarization of the Friday night and Shabbat morning services.

  • Basic prayer themes, key words and chants associated with each prayer are learned.

  • The meanings of words and prayer are evaluated and shared.

  • The long-term goal of our Hebrew/Tefillah (prayer) curriculum is to enable our students to walk into any Conservative synagogue and find the place in the Siddur (prayer book) during a service.

  • In addition to the Friday night and Shabbat morning services, students study some other prayers associated with holidays, life cycle events, and home rituals. 

  • Hebrew Through Movement, a total physical response approach to learning the Hebrew language is used with our younger classes.
