Hebrew at TEOT

The Eternal language of the Jewish people.

Hebrew is the eternal language of the Jewish people. It connects us to the past through prayer and text and carries us forward into the future. Each student at Temple Emanuel’s Religious School learns Hebrew. Learning begins in Pre-Kindergarten as they discover Hebrew through their bodies, using Aleph-Bet yoga to associate Hebrew with actions and begin basic sound recognition. Our early learners build on these skills in Kindergarten through 2nd grade, associating the sounds of our Hebrew letters with the shapes of the letters themselves.

Our Hebrew program for 3rd through 6th grades teaches students decoding, letter and vowel recognition, Hebrew reading fluency, and prayer- all at a level that is appropriate to each student’s current Hebrew ability. Our students use this time to not only prepare for their B’nei mitzvah, but develop a deep understanding of what each prayer means. 

Contact us for more information on our Hebrew program.
