1. Hebrew Language

Our Hebrew reading and writing curriculum - Aleph Champ - is the latest educational breakthrough. Modeled after Karate's motivational system of colour-coded levels and testing (from "white belt" to "black belt"), it provides excitement and inspiration, leading the student into a winning cycle of learning. This highly motivational system is time-tested and proven to be the fastest and most effective method of teaching Hebrew reading and writing to the North American child. Please read more about our Aleph Champ curriculum here.

2. Torah, Jewish values, Jewish History & Israel

Children will be introduced to the characters and stories of the Torah. An overview of Jewish history starting with Creation to the giving of the Torah to Judaism today will be taught through interactive stories and art projects. The students will gain an appreciation for our heritage and culture that has been preserved throughout millenia. They will study the Torah Portions, providing them with practical lessons that apply to our daily lives. They will also attain an affection for the uniqueness of Israel, our homeland.

4. Shabbat & Holidays

Providing a deeper understanding of Shabbat, we will explore its traditions and customs, and the reasons behind them. Hands-on lessons for each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we begin with learning about the High Holidays and continue throughout the entire school year. By the end of the year, the students will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of each holiday and its meaning.

5. Arts & Crafts

Art projects are incorporated into our curriculum to add to the excitement of the upcoming holidays and mitzvot. Our projects will have Jewish holiday and mitzvot themes and will add a taste of Jewish life at home.

6. Extra Curricular

Yeladim Junior Jewish Academy offers a variety of exciting extra curricular activities such as exciting monthly trips, Friday night Shabbat dinners, holiday programs, family fun day,s and contests. These events allow our students to experience Judaism in its entirety. A point system based on in-class and out-of-class participation will allow students to reach different award levels.
