The Temple Emanuel Torah Center engages students in Pre-kindergarten through 7th grade and their families in Jewish life and learning. With so many different opportunities to join our community – inspiring learning courses and activities, meaningful family worship and holiday experiences, important social action programs, informal youth gatherings and more… there is something for everyone! The programs we offer help our families to build a lasting foundation for living a Jewish life.
2021-2022 Midweek Hebrew Program Information
The COVID-19 pandemic shook up a model of Hebrew education that had remained largely unchanged since 1838, when Rebecca Gratz created a course of supplemental Jewish education for students participating in America’s new system of public, secular education. Smaller class sizes allowed for more teacher interaction and thus faster progress while adding flexibility to meet family needs. Easier access to multiple Hebrew touch points — including prayer services, tutoring, and Sunday / midweek classes — aided retention. Online tools enriched our traditional teaching modalities in fun ways that we can continue in-person or online.
The objectives of our Hebrew program remain constant: familiarizing students with Hebrew, the ancient and modern language of Jewish life, while building comfort with and understanding of the prayers of Jewish tradition. It’s the way we meet these objectives that changed and evolved — and will continue to do so — as we emerge from the pandemic.
We recognize the challenges you face prioritizing Jewish education along with increasingly-busy work, life, and extra-curricular activity schedules. Students in Grades 3-6 participating in our midweek Hebrew program can choose from the following times:
Wednesday from 4:30pm-6:00pm at Temple
Wednesday from 5:30pm-7:00pm at Temple
Thursday from 7:00pm-8:00pm online

3x-Weekly Hebrew Touch Points
Multiple touch points throughout the week aid in acquisition and retention of the Hebrew language. In addition to Sunday mornings and a Mid-Week session, students will be invited to sign up for a 15 minute online check-in each week, working 1-1 on letter/vowel recognition, reading fluency, prayer practice, and more depending on their progress. This third touchpoint won’t add additional time or cost to our Hebrew program (the midweek session has been modified accordingly) but will allow for better mastery of the material.
