Hebrew school 2Are you looking for an alternative Hebrew school? One that is less time commitment, very small classes, and that will get your child launched into reading basic Hebrew, learn the basic songs for the holidays, and master the central prayers of holidays like Passover (the four questions) and Hanukkah (the candles blessings)?

I’m beginning a home-based Hebrew school for my daughter, age 6. We will begin with “Hebrew Letter Boot Camp” – learning the Hebrew letters, and forming basic 2- and 3-letter words. The goal is basic reading, in ultimate preparation for her bat mitzvah (in whatever way you imagine that to be.)

I am graduating in a year from rabbinical school after 8 years of study. I have taught supplemental Hebrew school for 12+ years at many age cohorts. My home is at the nexus of Havertown, Wynnewood and Penn Wynne. We straddle Montgomery and Haverford townships.

School Starts Soon! We will meet on Mondays from 3:45 – 5:15 pm. (Most kids end school at 3:30, so we’ll begin once everyone gets over here after school, and then run the session for 1.5 hours.) Parents are welcome to wait here at the house and relax, watch TV, work on their laptops or do whatever! Or, you may drop off and come back later to pick up.

The schedule is:

Monday Nov. 3

Monday Nov. 10

Monday Nov. 17

Monday Nov. 24

Monday Dec 1

Monday Dec 8

Monday Dec 15

Monday Dec 22 (final session)

Monday Dec 29 (makeup session, if needed)

If the group chooses to continue into second semester, we can begin Monday Jan. 6.

So far, we have three children enrolled in the class. The cost for the eight sessions is $240. Payment for the course is due on the first day of school.

We do have room for one or two more kids. Please pass this info along to any families with 6- or 7-year-old kids who are Hebrew-reading ready, and who might be interested. Thanks!
