Hebrew Connect

OUR UNIQUE ONLINE HEBREW PROGRAM FOR 4th THROUGH 6th GRADERS

The Goal

To equip our kids with the Hebrew skills they need to be able to walk into any synagogue in the world and participate in the service. After completing Hebrew Connect, each child should be able to fluently read a siddur (prayer book) and understand what key prayers mean.

HOW IT WORKS

Hebrew Connect isn’t a passive video training – it’s an interactive classroom that allows kids to participate fully, ask questions and share ideas with the teacher and other students, all in real time.

One night per week, students sign on from their home computer and interact with the teacher and other students. Learning is truly interactive. The teacher and kids see each other, converse live and see various learning materials provided by the teacher during the class, via a virtual “whiteboard.”

A STRONG COMMUNITY

Surprisingly, this environment builds a unique and deep community. Through this virtual classroom, kids see a fellow student’s home, see the posters on their bedroom wall, meet their dog who sits in their lap or wave to their sister who walks through the frame. All of these interactions help students get to know one another more personally, not just as another student in a classroom.

Using this exciting virtual classroom technology, fourth through sixth graders and their parents experience greater scheduling flexibility and convenience, access from anywhere and a higher teacher/student ratio.
