The Bertram and Beatrice King Chabad Hebrew School (CHS) has opened registration for the coming school year. Directed by Mrs. Esther Tiechtel, CHS has earned a 25-year reputation of being an innovative program in which students excel in their Hebrew reading, Jewish knowledge, and pride for their heritage.
Located at the Genesis Campus for Jewish Life, CHS meets weekly, and caters to students ages 5 through 13. The new academic year will begin in August with a special program introducing this year’s theme, “Living Jewishly as a Community of One.”
“The Bertram and Beatrice King Chabad Hebrew School emphasizes exploring the Jewish heritage is a creative and fun way, putting the FUN in FUNdamentals, with special focus on not only accumulating knowledge, but applying those lessons to our everyday life,” said Tiechtel. She adds that,“Through art, drama, songs, contests, and interactive activities, Judaism become real and alive to the students.”
CHS prides itself on developing a community among its students, staff and parents. The Hebrew School's most important message is embedded in the culture and relationships it fosters, taking the time to build a community that attends to the needs of individual children, embracing them in an environment where their classmates become their good friends. The school is connected to congregation Beit Tefilah Chabad, sharing a feeling of warmth and hospitality, establishing values and morals that are at the core of our Jewish heritage.
During classes on Jewish values and holidays, children engage their minds of through peer discussions and hands-on experiences, and are challenged to analyze, evaluate, and compare texts, ideas, and ethical dilemmas. The cohesive, whole-school curriculum focuses on developing Emunah- Faith as the cornerstone in our lives. Children learn through stories of our heroes and heroines, illustrating how they used faith and connection to keep them grounded and strong.
CHS creates confident Jewish learners by giving them the tools to read Hebrew and participate in the davening/prayer services. The Alef Champ Program is famous for instilling a love as well as fluency in Hebrew reading. This year, students will enjoy centers on Hebrew writing and language as well as interactive vocabulary.
