Imagine a Hebrew school where kids don’t want to miss a day. They come in with a smile and leave looking forward to coming back. Walking through the halls, you can hear the sounds of lively discussion, singing, laughter, and heritage. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism.   Chabad Hebrew School enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trend setter in creative Jewish education for children aged 3 to 13 years, and this year, we are introducing Hebrew High, an exciting new program for post–Bar/Bat Mitzvah students. Chabad’s education programs feature a dynamic staff and interested students. Our student body is made up of children from various backgrounds and affiliations. 
   Through Hebrew reading and writing, Jewish history, holidays, and more, students gain an appreciation of the joys, values, and traditions of their Jewish heritage as it is vividly brought to life by the dedicated and enthusiastic teachers whose imagination and vision make every lesson a unique learning experience. The program is thus carefully blended with games, incentives, crafts, dramatics, family celebrations, and other exciting extra curricular activities. 
Chabad is currently offering a free 1-month trial for new students, and students who register before August 10 receive a free copy of Dr. Wendy Mogel’s New York Times bestselling parenting book, “The Blessing of a Skinned Knee.”  Registration for Chabad Hebrew School is now open for the upcoming year of 2012-2013. Hebrew school begins Sunday, September 9, at the Chabad Jewish Center, 90 Beaver Avenue, in Clinton. Ask about our first-month free trial and money back guarantee. Synagogue membership is not required. Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM for children aged 3 to 13 years and for those in Hebrew High.   To schedule an appointment to visit Chabad Hebrew School, please call (908) 238 9002 or e-mail Rachel Kornfeld at Rachel@JewishHunterdon.com.   For further information, log on to www.JewishHunterdon.com/HebrewSchool.  

Business Review

The school has grown to 6 classes and more than 60 students. Synagogue membership is not required.  Parents of Chabad Hebrew School students rave about their experience at Chabad. Dana and Craig Goodman from Clinton, for example, recently wrote, “Our son has truly embraced his Jewish heritage with open arms at the Chabad of Hunterdon County Hebrew School. They make it fun and easy to embrace. We are truly blessed to be a part of this special place.”   Anna and Eugene Benenson from Califon shared the Goodmans’ sentiments: “Our children have been students at Chabad Hebrew School for 5 years. They look forward to Sunday mornings, when they can return to Hebrew school for fun projects, yummy snacks, and laughs with their friends. The youngest don’t realize how much learning they do while having fun, and the oldest look forward to asking questions of their very knowledgeable teachers and appreciate how approachable the rabbi is. Our youngest child can’t wait to join his siblings at Hebrew school this year.”

 “The goal of our school is to create a welcoming and dynamic environment where students are imbued with a warmth and curiosity for Judaism, all through our interactive, hands-on, and innovative lessons,” explains curriculum contributor Sara Rabin. “Our motto is ‘Learn It, Love It, Live It.’”
