Learn Hebrew

by Karim D GhantousTemple B'nai Torah offers Hebrew classes for all ages.

Religious School Hebrew Classes

As part of our Religious School, we offer classes for our students of all ages. Beginning in 3rd grade, students begin more formal Hebrew instruction and move from letter and sight word recognition to reading. Our 4th to 6th grade classes focus on both reading and comprehension of the liturgy for Shabbat and Holy Days. It is designed to meet the needs of different learning styles and allows each student to progress at his or her own pace. On Sundays, the Hebrew Lab is available for students who need enrichment or extra help.

Our mid-week Hebrew program (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) continues the work done on Sundays in a one-room schoolhouse model. These classes meet from 4:30 - 6 PM.

To register for these classes, please register your child for Religious School using the instructions by clicking below:
