Parent Involvement Program (PIP)
This program provides an opportunity for parents to become more familiar with Shabbat prayers and rituals. Parents will learn the basics of synagogue service participation with synagogue members Eileen Schneider and Rob Chananie. Dates will be announced for this program, which will take place on Saturday mornings during Shabbat services and Sunday mornings while your children are in school.
Outline of the Hebrew School Curriculum
Pre-K/Kindergarten through 2nd grade
Our Pre-K/Kindergarten through 2nd grade meet once a week. The children learn about the holidays, the synagogue, prayer and Jewish values. They enjoy music, art and dance while developing a repertoire of Jewish songs, dance, and prayers.
3rd through 7th grades
Our 3rd through 7th grades meet twice a week, on Sunday mornings and Tuesday afternoons, for a total of 5 hours a week. Children develop their Hebrew reading skills, their prayer fluency, and their understanding of the words of the prayers. The 5 year curriculum includes a detailed understanding of the Jewish Holidays, the weekly Torah readings, Jewish history-including a unit on the Holocaust, and values, Mitzvot, and Jewish current events locally and around the world. They study the history of the State of Israel, and become familiar with Israel today.
Our outstanding devoted faculty, creative curriculum, and exciting programming allow our students to achieve great things during their time at the Community Hebrew School of Bergen County at both our Paramus and Fair Lawn locations (split throughout the school year)
