Hebrew School

Kindergarten through Grade 7

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

An integral part of the Glen Rock Jewish Center, our Hebrew School encourages our students to discover their Jewish identity as they explore a rich curriculum designed to nurture an appreciation and understanding of Jewish heritage, ritual and culture.

Our school offers a comprehensive program with classes for kindergarten through grade seven.  Our youngest students attend Sunday School for two hours twice a month.  Students in first and second grade attend Sunday School for two hours weekly.  Students in grades three through seven meet in class twice a week and also attend synagogue services.  Students who have completed our program are encouraged to attend the Bergen County High School for Jewish Studies, located at Temple Israel and JCC in Ridgewood, NJ.

The GRJC Hebrew School faculty is experienced and dedicated to making our students' experiences satisfying and meaningful. 

Prayers and study of text are woven into our curriculum, along with Jewish history, culture and Hebrew language to foster a strong connection with their Jewish heritage.

In keeping with our major goal of preparing our young people to become active members of the Congregation, each class has several hands-on programs throughout the school year.  These include Shabbatonim (participation in Friday night or Saturday services) and life-cycle events.  Parents are invited to become actively involved in their children's religious education through classroom visits, attendance at special programs, and parent and family workshops held during the school year.


The Glen Rock Jewish Center Hebrew School strives to make our students life-long Jewish learners.  Our goals are:

  • to instill in our students an understanding of what it means to be a member of the Jewish community, and to promote a sense of pride in their Jewish heritage
  • to enable each student to participate in services, text study and rituals at home and in the synagogue, and to feel welcome as a participant in the synagogue
  • to graduate students who possess the knowledge, skills and desire to be responsible, active members of the Conservative Jewish tradition in the synagogue and at home
  • to integrate Jewish values and traditions into the student’s way of life
  • to stimulate the desire for life-long Jewish learning.
