Hebrew School for the Mind Body & Soul
Beth Moshe Hebrew School is dedicated to creating a community of students and families who
are committed to lifelong Jewish learning and caring for the world around them. We inspire a love of Judaism by engaging our students in passionate, interactive learning. Our community of learners — experienced faculty, invested parents, and students of all ages — walk side by side as we navigate our own Jewish paths.
Little Hebrew? No Hebrew? No problem! Our individually tailored lessons and low teacher student ratio ensures maximum learning and maximum fun!
Our Hebrew School program is a specially designed supplementary curriculum to secular school for grades K-7. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30 pm. During the first hour, your student will have the option of participating in Rikudim (Israeli Dancing) and Hebrew Through Movement. The second half of the session will be spent learning Hebrew, Torah, Holidays and Jewish Life Cycles. Beth Moshe Hebrew School is geared toward preparation for your child's Bar and Bat Mitzvah with reading skills and a general understanding of the most common prayers read in the synagogue. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of holiday activities and synagogue events with their families throughout the year. Our goals are encouraging Jewish values such as Tikkun Olam, teaching Hebrew language, and learning our common histories together in an inclusive, engaged and interactive environment.
Meet Our Instructors
Our Hebrew School aims to inspire our children to develop their Jewish Identities through various channels that nourish the mind, body, and soul. Upon the successful completion of our program, our students will be able to:
-Understand the traditions and historical roots of our culture
-Ascertain a reasonable knowledge of the Hebrew language, ultimately enough to feel comfortable with Hebrew so they can follow and enjoy Synagogue services
-Experience and enjoy a range of Jewish cultural activities
