GOAL

At the JRCC our goal is straight forward: We want our students to view Judaism in a warm, relevant and upbeat manner.

We are not just about learning and accumulating information. We strive to instill in the children a deep appreciation and love for the Torah and our Heritage and a taste for more!

Our Hebrew School offers a Hebrew Reading program and an extensive Jewish studies curriculum, along with various fun activities, 'Kiddie Chefs', and celebrations evolving around the Jewish Holidays.

 

By year's end, along with the Aleph-Bet, Hebrew language skills, Holiday learning, Jewish history and the Mitzvot, your child will have developed deep feelings for who they are and how they are destined to grow up like, imbuing their every day with a sense of pride and purpose.

HEBREW

At the JRCC Hebrew School we utilize a highly successful reading program called the 'Aleph Champ' program.

 

This program is designed with a theme and motivation similar to that of the traditional Karate system: using different colors to represent a hierarchy of levels in proficiency.

 

This system is an incredible tool for our students, since it enables each student to work at his/her own pace and take pride as they master one level and move up to the next. 

Our goal is that upon graduation, every child will be fluent in and
comfortable with reading Hebrew, especially the common parts of
he liturgy. 

HOLIDAYS

Lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashanah and the High Holidays through Sukkot, Chanukah, Purim, Passover and the festival of Shavuot. The students will gain practical instruction about the laws and traditions through arts & crafts and hands-on learning. They will also learn about the meanings of each holiday and their relevant customs and importance today.

HISTORY 

The students will learn all about our History and roots through the fascinating stories and characters in the Tanach, from the time of creation through the present time.

PRAYER & SONG

Prayer time focuses on the study and understanding of prayer and the
iddur (prayer book). Students learn the meaning of each prayer as well
as some key words to remember. They also learn wonderful songs both
rom the liturgy as well as songs about Jewish life and traditions.

JEWISH LIFE

Students will explore and experience essential Jewish Mitzvot such as
habbat, Kosher, Mezuza, Tzedaka (charity), Respecting Parents, making
lessings and more. 

ISRAEL
The land of Israel, which we refer to as the ‘Holy Land’ is at the center
of our Jewish tradition. The special Israel Project will help the children
earn about biblical and modern Israel: the history, geography, people,
food, technology, etc

 

MOSHIACH

One of the famous 13 principals of the Jewish faith is the belief in the coming of Moshiach and ultimate redemption of the entire humanity.

The children will learn about this important concept and its Jewish approach, instilling them with a yearning and caring for the Jewish peoples future and destiny.
