SUBJECTS COVERED:

Students master the Hebrew alphabet and the sounds each letter makes, learn to blend vowels and consonants, discuss twenty-five Hebrew heritage words, and begin to write Hebrew letters and vowels. (Shalom Aleph-Bet)
  • Mitzvot: Through this course, students learn to incorporate mitzvot in their lives. These commandments are explained in terms children can easily grasp, using engaging questions, thoughtful activities, and memorable stories. (Let’s Discover Mitzvot)
  • Israel: Second grade students develop a love for and an appreciation of the Land of Israel. Students are introduced to Israel’s cities, her people, and her customs. Lessons are reinforced by hands-on activities, crafts, videos, and cooking. This course is a perfect parallel to the commencement of their formal studies of Hebrew. (The Great Israel Scavenger Hunt)
