Chabad Hebrew School is not a typical school. We understand that children learn through hand on activities and interactive discussions, and we strive to create an environment which is fun and exciting! Kids don’t want to miss a day!
One of the common myths associated with Chabad is that it is a place that is only for religious Jews. Although the synagogue is traditional, and our staff is observant, almost NONE of our Hebrew School families are orthodox. Our students are from very diverse Jewish backgrounds and most attend public school or non-Jewish private schools. Many of our families identify as Conservative, Reform or unaffiliated, but choose to send their children to Chabad Hebrew School because of the excellent quality of education we offer. The range of observance is varied, some families attend synagogue or do Shabbat at home, some observe the holidays, some parents read Hebrew, many do not. When teaching about observance and Mitzvot, our teachers are careful to present in a way that includes all children. Our curriculum teaches personal Judaism, without labels or divisions.
Annual Tradition is $660 per student plus a $40 security fee per family. We also offer siblings discount.
Our school welcomes every Jew, regardless of religious background or level of observance. It is for this reason that our school does not require any membership or prior affiliations as a condition for enrollment.
Rather than have a set membership fee, Chabad of Cary relies on free-will donations from the community. We encourage our Hebrew School families to take part in one of our of our giving programs. Our continued growth is made possible by the support we receive from friends like you.
No families are turned away due to lack of funds. Please contact us to discuss.
Chabad Hebrew School uses the highly motivational Aleph Champ program to teach Hebrew reading. With the Aleph Champ program, reading has never been this fun!! Beginner students begin by being introduced to the letters of the Aleph Bet. They will spend a great deal of time on letter recognition through exercises and games to ensure that their foundation in Hebrew reading is solid. After they master the Aleph Bet, they will begin learning the Nikudot (Vowels), focusing on recognizing the names, appearance and sounds of the Nikudot.
One of the many advantages of this program is how it allows each child to progress at his or her pace.
As children master Hebrew Reading, they will advance to our advanced classes that focus on fluency and Hebrew Compression with Morah Samra Nissan
