A Sneak Peak at Our Curriculum 

We're impressed with our curriculum, now it's your turn! The lessons are multi-sensory, & hands-on, ensuring that the students truly experience what they are being taught.  Chabad Hebrew School of Delco is an affiliate of the Chabad International Hebrew Education Network, who stand at the forefront of Jewish education worldwide, providing our children with the highest level of Jewish education possible, in a Hebrew School setting.

Areas of Academic Emphasis Include:  
  
Jewish History 
An overview of Jewish history starting with creation, to the giving of the Torah, to modern day Israel will be taught through interactive stories and art projects.   
   
Bible Stories  
Study of various Torah portions & stories to pique the children’s interest   
  
Israel 
Our students understand that Israel is not just another country but our own homeland; a land that is truly the “Promised Land”, both spiritually and physically.  
  
Jewish Culture 
The students gain an appreciation of our heritage and culture that has been preserved throughout the ages through various cultural crafts, literature, and songs, presented throughout the year.  
  
Jewish Song & Dance 
Through Song and dance, our students are taught to develop an enjoyment and understanding of a variety of both traditional and Israeli songs. Each song is taught through rhythm, movement and educational activities.   
  
Aleph Champ PortalHebrew Language 
The children will learn various vocabulary words, and common language words in the Hebrew language, through circle & play time, hanging posters, contests, songs, and dances.  
  
Hebrew Alphabet 
The children will learn and befriend all the letters of the alphabet through a hands-on Alef Champ Program.  Have you ever heard, "but Hebrew reading is boring?"  Move over and make room for a new, state of the art reading program modeled after the Martial Arts System.  Phonemic awareness will be integrated into these lessons, so each child can match letters, with their sounds.   
  
Chesed - Social Action 
Through projects focused on sharing and giving, the students will form a special relationship with other Jewish children around the world, experiencing first hand, how they can make a difference in another child’s life.   
  
Holiday ProgramsHolidays & Shabbat 
Hands-on lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we begin with learning about the High Holidays and continue throughout the year.  By the end of the year, the students will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of each holiday, its traditions and customs, and on Shabbat, and its special meaning to the Jewish people. 

  
Jewish Values & Ethics
Beginning with the origins of the Mitzvot, students will explore, read, and discuss practical applications of good deeds, and ways of bringing it into the life of a little child. Children will understand that our religion is based on a G‑d given set of values and morals, and will gain an appreciation for their meaning.
