See "Aleph Champ" section below.

The children are introduced to the characters and stories of the Bible. They are given an overview of Jewish history starting with creation to the giving of the Torah to modern day Israel.

Hands-on lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashanah and the High Holidays through the holiday of Shavuot.  The students will have a deeper understanding of each holiday, traditions and customs.  Chabad of Kendall Hebrew School will also host holiday celebrations for our students and their families.

(Grades 2-7) using various texts, the students will read and discuss stories and case scenarios that have practical application to our every day life.  They will understand that our religion is based on G‑d given set of values and morals.

Why do women light Shabbat candles? Why is Shabbat such a special day in this week? Why do we have Mezuzah on our doors? We will teach basic Mitzvot to grade K-1 and provide insightful meaning of more complex Mitzvot to grades 2-7.

Art projects are incorporated into our curriculum to add excitement to the upcoming holidays and mitzvoth.  Our projects will have Jewish holiday and Mitzvot themes and will add a taste of Jewish life at home.  The younger students will be doing art more often than the older grades.

Chabad of Kendall Hebrew School will offer a variety of extra curricular activities such as special guests, Friday night dinners, field trips and contests.  These events will allow our students to experience Judaism in it’s entirety.

~ Aleph Champion ~

Our Aleph Champ Reading Program has met with tremendous success over the years. This program is a great way to help motivate our students to advance and improve their fluency in Hebrew Reading. It also allows children to progress and advance at their own pace. Aleph Champ, uses the karate theme of different color belts for different levels which enables our students to see how they advance from level to level.    

Every student starts at the beginning level of white and as they progress and they are tested periodically, they can advance to the next level.

There are designated testing dates on which students are evaluated in order to determine their progress. There will be several award ceremonies throughout the year to give recognition to our students for the levels which they have attained. Parents will be invited to participate in these ceremonies. Our goal is for our students to enjoy learning and to enjoy practicing Hebrew reading as well as to progress in a fast pace. 

Each class has one period every Sunday in the Aleph Champ Reading Room. The students are divided into small groups based on their level. In groups, they engage in Reading, Writing and a Hands-on activity related to Hebrew reading by visiting each center.

Aleph Champ Track 2 requires the students to master various prayers. Each level is made up of a particular prayer. Students have to learn the meaning of the words, and the background to that particular prayer.
