Imagine a Hebrew school where kids don't want to miss a day! Our students come to school with a smile and leave humming a Hebrew song! Our challenge at Chabad is to find ways to open the minds and souls of our students, so that they will want to learn. Thus, at Chabad Hebrew School we have developed a curricululm that moves from a focus on teaching, to a focus on learning. A new and creative learning environment replaces the traditional Hebrew School setting. The atmosphere has to be upbeat, fun, and inspiring, so that our students like being with us.

We believe that our staff has to be living role models for our students. In addition to the Rabbis and Rebbetzins, our staff consists of young men and women whose youthful enthusiam, knowledge and creative energy bring spirit, warmth, and a wealth of education to our school.

We believe that children learn from doing, and that frontal teaching does not work in an after-school setting. Our students learn through engaging their artistic abiliites or by an actual hands on lesson. For example, we teach the High Holidays with fantastic Honey Making and Create your Own Shofar workshops! The children learn about Shabbat by coming down to the Rabbi's house and making their own Challah and Matzah Ball soup at Thursday night Cook-a-thons! Art, Music, Drama and Song, enrich the students lessons and help them learn in a fun and exciting manner.

Our Hebrew Language curriculum assures that your child will eventually be reading from a Siddur - prayer book, and understanding the meaning of many prayers. Our teachers emphasize conversational Hebrew, and the students are further exposed to the language through music and drama, and by studying directly from biblical text.

While we encourage Synagogue attendance, we do not require our students to be members in a Synagogue. Our student body is comprised of children ages 5-13, from various backgrounds and affiliations, and all of our families are invited to attend services at Chabad of Laguna.
