Jewish tradition has always promoted a loving approach from one individual to another. Alef Hebrew School is dedicated to making the richness of our Jewish heritage accessible to the contemporary Jew, every Jew, no matter what their affiliation or level of religious observance.

 Our Hebrew School 

Alef Hebrew School creates an environment that brings Judaism to life, fosters creativity and supports your child's personal style of learning. We use a unique approach, which is hands-on and stimulates your child's intellect. Our curriculum has been designed to make a lasting, positive impact on the life of your child. 

Judiasm comes alive!

Through drama, song, art and stories we bring Judaism to life. Our innovative methods makes learning fun and memorable. We teach Jewish history alongside secular history, a method that encourages critical thinking. Through our mitzvah curriculum we emphasize each mitzvah's meaning for everyday life, in addition to the how-to of ritual observance.Our Hebrew language curriculum ensures that your child will be able to read from a "Siddur" (prayer book). More than that, your child will understand the meaning of many of the prayers. No matter what synagogue your child attends he or she will share the language of prayer with Jews around the world.

Our Staff 

Our Hebrew School teachers are carefully selected for their extensive knowledge of Judaism and their dedication to children. Each teacher lives and breathes what he or she teaches, providing the best possible model for our students. Staff members have Rabbinic ordination, extensive Hebrew language skills, and/or attended teachers' seminaries. Through their education they have learned the strategies to successfully share Judaism with children of all levels of knowledge and ability. In addition to the Judaic studies that they teach, they understand the developmental issues applicable to the age level of their students. In short, our teachers are as enthusiastic about teaching as our students are about learning!
