1. What topics do you teach?

Each class is designed to help you reach your educational goals for your children. Topics  includ Hebrew language, Jewish history, Tefillah (prayer), Torah study, Holidays, Jewish stories and songs, Mitzvot, and Community Values, among others, and we’re always open to new ideas, too!

 

2. If classes are small, how will my child make other Jewish friends?

We offer exciting programming throughout the year that brings children from all of our classes together. From holiday events like Rosh Hashana Master Chef, Matzah Bakery, and Purim Carnival to our Winter and Summer Camps, Synagogue Shabbat Programs, and our Library Story Hours, HSAYD provides many opportunities for our families to become a community.

 

3.  How often do classes meet?

Classes meet weekly in 6-week sessions with many students choosing to participate in 3 or 4 sessions per year. Classes are one hour each with a 30 minute add-on option available.


 

4.  Why Discovery Hebrew School At Your Door vs. Traditional Hebrew School?


 

Traditional Hebrew School

Discovery Hebrew School At Your Door

Standard Curriculum requires your child to fit the classroom mold

Classes are tailor-made to reach your family's learning goals! 

Rigid scheduling requires you to be available at times that would otherwise be spent with family

Our schedule is based on your schedule. You pick a time that works best for you and your family

Large classes means less individual attention

Small classes mean teachers can cater to each kid's strengths and interests and spend less time on class management and more time teaching!

 

 

5.  Sounds great! But we’re not that religious/our kids already go to Jewish day school/we’re new to this whole Hebrew School thing will it still work for us?

Regardless of your Jewish background, or level of Jewish education, Discovery Hebrew School At Your Door is a great choice! Because we tailor-design each class based on its participants, Discovery Hebrew School At Your Door can work for anyone. We’ve had students whose families are otherwise completely uninvolved, students who attend full time Jewish day school and everyone in between.

 

6. I know classes are offered at the “location of my choice”, but what does that actually mean?

Anywhere you fell comfortable, some suggestions include:

  • Your home, inside or out.

  • Under a shelter at a public park

  • A Public Library (when they open)

Please note, unless the class is taking place at one of our locations, another adult must be on premises. 

 

 7.  How do the group classes work? What if I don’t know another family to join with my child?

Typically, our group class rate requires a minimum of 2 families or 3 children. It’s great when children learn with friends as they can develop great friendships and learn from questions and comments posed by their peers. So whenever possible, we will do our best to help you pair your child up with at least one other child at their grade level.

 

8. With all the customization and privatized learning, is the program super expensive?

We do our best to make our program accessible to all Jewish families. That’s why no child is ever turned away from our programs for lack of funds. Our prices are beyond competitive and are all-inclusive. There are no membership fees, book fees or registration fees.

Group Lessons (3+ students)

$240 per student per 6-week session
