RIJC - Hebrew School for September - starting Sept 14th, 2023

Dear Parents,


We are planning on re-starting the Hebrew school on Roosevelt Island in September.  We have a couple of potential teachers identified and are very excited to have students join.

Please let us know if your family is interested. You can download the registration form at this link.


Hebrew school will meet on Thursdays at the Rivercross Community room. 

We are hoping to have the first class (younger) from 4:30 - 5:30 pm and the older group (older 9+) from 5:30 -6:30 pm.  (Or something similar - maybe 4-5 and 5-6 - depending on afterschool schedules).

The typical Hebrew school class will include a healthy snack, learning about upcoming holidays (especially in September/ October), songs, Bible stories - the Parsha of the week (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, Joseph and his brothers, etc), Israel, Aleph Bet (learn to write their names in Hebrew, etc), for the older kids, some basic prayers to make them feel comfortable in Jewish settings (prayer over wine, challah, candles).

14 one-hour classes, 4pm on Thursdays (see attached schedule)
