Our Curriculum

 

HEBREW

Our students learn to read, write, and speak Hebrew fluently. They gain confidence and familiarity with the Siddur-Hebrew Prayer Book. At Juda we use the world-renowned, critically acclaimed Aleph Champ program to ensure that your child will read fluently by the end of his/her Juda experience. In every lesson, Hebrew vocabulary related to the subject material is introduced and students are encouraged to use the Hebrew terminology to build on their Hebrew oratory skills. Additional Lessons in conversational Hebrew are held with Hebrew speaking Teachers.
