Hebrew School

Kindergarten through Grade 7

"And you shall teach them diligently unto your children..." (Deuteronomy 6:7)

Our Hebrew school provides a rich curriculum, designed to foster a positive Jewish identity, an understanding of Jewish values, and a connection with our heritage. Our school strives to develop life-long learners. Prayers and study of text are woven into our curriculum, along with Jewish history, culture and Hebrew language to foster a strong connection with our Jewish heritage. The GRJC Hebrew School faculty is experienced and dedicated to making our students' experiences meaningful and fun.

The classroom experience is enriched with art, cooking, technology and special programs and Shabbat experiences. These include a Hebrew name celebration in Bet (2nd grade), a family Havdalah program in Gimel, Jews Around the World in Vav (6th grade), and Mishpacha Minyan (a family-friendly Shabbat service) in Gimel – Vav (3rd - 6th grades). In addition, students lead part of a Shabbat service in Gimel – Zayin (3rd – 7th grades).


Parents are our partners in educating our children. We invite parents to be actively involved in their children's religious education through attendance at special programs, Shabbat services, and family workshops held during the school year.

As the next step in pursuing life-long Jewish learning, our graduates are encouraged to attend the Bergen County High School for Jewish Studies, located at Temple Israel and JCC in Ridgewood, NJ.
