Our Philosophy


To create a school that is a contemporary learning center successfully catering to Jewish families from all walks of life. Our school welcomes every Jew, regardless of religious background or level of observance. It is for this reason that our school does not require any membership or prior affiliations as a condition for enrollment.

Chabad's Hebrew School is being created with one goal in mind - to offer all Jewish children, even those with little or no background - an education and memories that will inspire them for a lifetime.

To make Hebrew School the beginning of Jewish learning, not the end.

To provide education that will instill pride, a sense of history, love for the land of Israel and a genuine understanding of what Judaism is all about.

Our Goals



• Attain a strong sense of love of Judaism and pride in being Jewish.

• Discover & explore the Torah (Bible), the incredible history of the Jewish people & see its relevance in today's day & age.

• Gain an understanding of the practices & traditions of Judaism.

• Know the morals, values & ethical behavior mandated by the Torah.

• Hands-on experience & appreciation for all Jewish holidays.

• Master Hebrew skills of reading & writing.

• Understand basic Hebrew words.

• Learn basic prayers so that the students will feel comfortable when attending services.

• Identify with the land of Israel & its inhabitants.

• Allow students to express their opinions and questions about G‑d, Torah & religion.
