The IJC's Hebrew School's mission is to strengthen our children's Jewish identity and create knowledgeable Jewish citizens. We do this by providing a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in which we nourish our children's sense of Jewish culture and values.
When We Meet
There are 18 sessions throughout the school year typically on Saturday mornings from 10 - 12.30 at the IJC premises. The first session of Hebrew School for 2019-20 will be held on September 7, 2019.
Our Diverse Community
The IJC is a progressive and open community that welcomes children and their families from a range of Jewish culture and beliefs. We serve a diverse community from around the world, which includes children of inter-faith couples. While the primary language of instruction is English, the majority of our students and teachers are multilingual. All children, regardless of English ability and prior instruction in Jewish studies are welcome.
What We Teach
In groups based on age and knowledge, our program consists of instruction in Hebrew, religious holidays and traditions, prayer, and the modern Jewish experience. There is an emphasis on creative expression through crafts and song, especially for the younger students. Older students are prepared for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
