At JEP Kid’s Club Hebrew School we strive to make every child feel welcome regardless of knowledge or affiliation. Here we combine all the facilities of modern technology with age old Jewish values and ethics, in a framework of a warm, friendly environment.
Our program’s most underlying approach is for the children to enjoy the time spent at Hebrew School so that they are left with positive feelings and fond memories of their Jewish Education. Our program is thus carefully blended with songs, games, incentives, crafts, dramatics, family celebrations and other exciting co- curricular activities.
Our curriculum is intended to both provide our students with exposure to Jewish knowledge and Hebrew Skills, as well as to foster within them a sense of belonging and closeness to G-d and the Jewish People.
~ To attain a strong sense of Love and Pride in being Jewish.
~ Discover and explore the Torah, the incredible history of the Jewish people and see its relevance in today’s day and age.
~ Gain an understanding of the practices and traditions of Judaism.
~ Know the morals, values and ethical behavior taught by the Torah.
~ Hands-on experience and appreciation for all holidays ¨ Master the skills of Hebrew reading.

We hope to engage your child’s sense of identity by capturing his/her imagination and attention. So, we put a lot of effort into providing our students with substantive lessons and a positive atmosphere.
The lessons are multi-sensory and hands-on, ensuring that the students truly experience what they are being taught. The lessons are structured with discussion-starters, to create a lively, interactive classroom experience. The information truly becomes the student’s own.

Club Kef gathers the students for dramatic story-telling, a group game, a surprise raffle, or to celebrate an upcoming holiday or special day. At this time, we will also have the monthly Aleph Champ Award Ceremony, award prizes, sing Yom Huledet (Happy Birthday) to those celebrating their Hebrew Birthday that month and much more!
Hebrew & The Aleph Champ Program Our Hebrew reading curriculum is the latest educational breakthrough in Hebrew reading. Modeled after the Karate motivational system of colored coded levels, it provides excitement and inspiration, leading the students into a winning cycle of learning. Aleph champ program ensures that your child will read fluently at the end of his/her Hebrew School Experience.
Beginning with letter recognition for our youngest children, the program leads them through phonetic decoding, reading comprehension and writing. Individually appropriate workbooks and creative exercises will be completed throughout the year. Our goal is that every child be comfortable with basic Hebrew reading and become fluent in reciting the basic prayers in the Prayer book
Holidays Each class examines the holiday from a totally different perspective making each years learning a new and exciting holiday adventure. 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 gain a deeper understanding of each holiday, traditions and customs.
JEP Kid’s Club will also host holiday celebrations for our students and their families.
Jewish Values and Ethics Using a variety of different dramatic methods, students explore and discuss themes according to the values and morals of Judaism.
Mitzvot: Why do we do what we do? Why do women light Shabbat candles? Why do we have a mezuzah on our doors? This class will teach basic mitzvoth to the junior class and provide insightful meaning of more complex mitzvoth to the senior class.
