Goals: The goal of the Stone Hebrew School at Ohav Shalom is to stimulate awareness among our participating families that Judaism is alive today. Our Hebrew School stresses whole family education as integral to Jewish upbringing. This will be accomplished through classes using imaginative and thought provoking teaching methods and hands-on experiences for the children. The Stone Hebrew School at Ohav Shalom is an innovative school that provides an enjoyable environment for children to receive a broad knowledge of Judaism in a stimulating and challenging way. Our students gain an appreciation for the joys, values and traditions of our heritage as vividly brought to life by our dedicated and enthusiastic teachers, whose creativity and dynamism make every lesson a unique learning experience.
Hebrew Language: Our students become familiar with the Hebrew alphabet, learn to read, and become accustomed to Hebrew vocabulary. Our Hebrew Language program caters to different levels of knowledge of Hebrew within each age group. This subject also familiarizes our students with the Siddur – Prayer Book, allowing them to start to feel comfortable in the Synagogue.
Family Learning: A major component of our success is the under-rated element of parent involvement. Remember when you asked why you had to go to Hebrew school? "Because I had to go!" was the answer you usually got from your folks. Imagine if, years back, your folks didn't just drop you off at school to pick you up two or three hours later. Imagine that just once, they stayed with you, grew with you, studied with you, and actually showed an interest in your Hebrew School experience. To enable this we have Adult Programs designed to enrich the total Hebrew School experience for your child.
During JFI Supper Sundays, we will be offering exciting simultaneous classes for the parents as well. There is nothing more important for your children than to see their parents joining with them in experiencing Jewish education.
