Why Focus on Hebrew?
The Hebrew language represents thousands of years of Jewish culture and identity; it is a critical tool to connect today’s young Jews with their heritage.
Beyond the individual connections we hope our students make with their Judaism, our shared Hebrew language is one of the essential ingredients that can help bind our Jewish communities together, strengthen our resolve as a people, and increase our unity as a nation.
When Hebrew is integrated into the overall curriculum of our Hebrew day schools, it reinforces and elevates the impact of all of the other Limudei Kodesh studies.
Moreover, an integrated Hebrew curriculum can help our students remain anchored to their Jewish values in the face of the challenges they will undoubtedly face when they pursue an education at the university level, and beyond.
