Our Approach

Using an experiential and text-based approach, we focus on the importance of Jewish knowledge, community and joy as the foundation that will guide and inspire our students throughout their lives. We see our city as an extension of our classrooms, and learn in our parks, museums, stores, Shuls and more. 

We start with the ideals of Chabad as taught by the Rebbe: the drive to share the beauty and joy of Torah and Mitzvot with love, respect and acceptance of every family and every student. We meet our families where they are and are sensitive to the various levels of observance and beliefs in each family.

Core Values that drive the educational experience at Chabad Hebrew School:

  1. Torah as Hora’ah: Torah as a guide for life

  2. Becoming Partners in Creation: creating, caring for and protecting G‑d’s world

  3. Artzeinu Hakedosha - Eretz Yisrael is holy and ours

  4. Ahavat V’Achdut Yisrael - Sense of belonging to the people of Israel, and love of your fellow Jew

  5. Tzelem Elokim - Respecting the value of every individual

Alongside the core values,we want our students to develop a core Jewish literacy that will inform and enrich their relationship with the Jewish people, with Judaism and with the broader world.

Our Learners will:

  • learn to utilize prayer as a powerful means to connect to G‑d

  • appreciate the rhythm of the Jewish cycle of time: the holidays, Shabbat, Parshat hashavua, life cycle events

  • explore Jewish history, culture and geography, connecting it to their personal and family experiences

  • navigate and be comfortable in engaging in Jewish ritual and practice

  • acquire a working knowledge of Tanach, knowing its people, times and eternal messages

  • understand and appreciate the Jewish perspective on ethics and morality
