Hebrew Program (Grade 4-7)

The new Hebrew curriculum is designed to create a foundational understanding of the Hebrew language. Under the guidance of HaMoreh Dani, students will learn Hebrew vocabulary and grammar, they will strengthen their oral and written communication skills from year to year. Students will learn about Jewish and Israeli culture through several cross-curricular activities such as: music, games, celebrations, arts & crafts, and several hands on activities. The new Hebrew curriculum is aligned with the Ontario Language Curriculum and was created to support all students and reading abilities. Meeting students where they are at in their Hebrew understanding will enrich their connection and love for the language. A few words from Dani “I aim to form a fundamental understanding of the Hebrew language that will follow students throughout their life, especially for such milestones as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah and Birthright.”
