Hebrew language learning is an expression of our Core Value of Ahavat Yisra-el/Love Of Israel as our students build connection to the People and Land of Israel through our communal language. Our curriculum emphasizes development of communicative language skills with the goal to become naturally and authentically conversant in Hebrew. Students are engaged from early on in using the Hebrew language in modalities that enable them to read, write and converse in Hebrew according to their grade level proficiency. Students are often engaged in dramatizing narratives, interviewing Hebrew speakers, playing games, and reading Israeli stories and other materials. Israeli music and culture are integrated into the learning and provide a strong foundation for creating a strong bond with Israel and the Hebrew language.
