Hebrew School – Cheder
C.U.S offers a stimulating yet friendly environment where children embrace their Jewish roots and gain a true sense of Jewish pride, no matter their level of observance.
Children, ages four through thirteen, acquire a broad knowledge of Judaism through a motivating and challenging venue. Our students gain an appreciation for the joys, values and traditions of our heritage as it is vividly brought to life by the dedicated and enthusiastic teachers whose creativity and dynamism make every lesson a unique learning experience.
We teach Hebrew Reading, Jewish History, Jewish Values, Arts and Crafts, Israel and Holidays.
We provide a stimulating and enjoyable enviroment by using lessons that are multi-sensory and hands-on. The students truly experience what they are being taught.
At the C.U.S our goal is simple: We want our students to view Judaism in an intelligent, relevant, fun and upbeat light. By year’s end, along with the Aleph-Bais, Holiday learning and Hebrew literacy, your child will have developed a deep love and appreciation for their precious heritage, imbuing their every day with a sense of pride and purpose.
The Aleph Champ Program was developed in 2004 to provide new and exciting ways for students to learn to read Hebrew.
Aleph Champ adopted the color system used in karate–“white belt to “black belt”–to motivate Hebrew reading in Hebrew Schools.
The success of the program was immediate. Students took to the “Aleph Champ” idea with unprecedented enthusiasm.
Following its initial success, Hebrew Schools around the world began using Aleph Champ and today the program is used by over 450 schools worldwide as well as by many home-schoolers and adult educators.
Aleph Champ is constantly looking for new ways to reinforce Hebrew reading and continues to strive for an excellent reading program that will give Jewish children confidence in reading.
It is our goal to provide the next generation of Jewish children with the dignity to walk into a shul and open up a siddur, comfortable enough to read from the Hebrew text and join along as a proud member of the Jewish community.
