Hebrew School without Walls

No more sitting in class! Our Hebrew School without Walls is an experiential model that engages families with children to “do Jewish” together. Along with monthly arts, text study, cooking, and more, it includes individualized Hebrew reading instruction and bar/bat mitzvah preparation, summer camp, and Israel experience.
