Our after school programming emphasizes team teaching and experiential learning, with the modern Hebrew language at the core of a comprehensive and meaningful curriculum. Our fluent Hebrew speaking and highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants work as a cohesive team to plan and implement the curriculum in our intimate classroom environment. We boast a high ratio of teachers to students, which provides for greater individual attention.
Our Moadon Hebrew Program is designed for children from junior Kindergarten through seventh grade. Through collaborative learning, children are immersed in Jewish culture, religion, and tradition, as well as the Hebrew language. This program prepares students for a smooth, stress-free transition to becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
We offer Moadon Enrichment courses as a supplement to the Moadon after-school experience, or another Jewish education program within the community. This second-day option covers topics such as conversational Hebrew immersion, “Language Soup” (cooking in Hebrew), Israeli folk and modern dance, creative Israeli art, Israeli music, and hands-on Bar or Bat Mitzvah preparation for grades five through eight.
We offer Gan Gani Alumni Enrichment courses for total conversational Hebrew immersion as a direct continuation of Gan Gani. Students will continue to converse, read and write in Hebrew, and use the language in a variety of ways, covering the same popular topics that are presented in Moadon Enrichment, but all in Hebrew!
We also offer individualized Bar or Bat Mitzvah tutoring and preparation. The program includes a private tutor who works with each student on chanting the various parts of the service including the Torah and Haftarah (a portion taken from the prophets or the later writings). More in depth information regarding the variety of ways to celebrate the milestone of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is available upon request.
For students in eighth grade and older, we offer Above & Beyond, a post-Bar or Bat Mitzvah monthly dinner program. Each session has a unique theme that appeals to high school students and is communicated through various teaching methodologies.
