Hebrew 

Hebrew learning happens in many different ways at Sukkat Shalom. We offer student only classes and one on one tutoring with our Hebrew tutoring option. If you are moving toward having your child (who will be entering 5th grade in the fall) become a B'nai Mitzvah at Congregation Sukkat Shalom they need to be enrolled in one of our Hebrew offerings and Family School. Hebrew is open to all our 5th, 6th and 7th grade students.

Tutoring Option

Master Teacher: Ronit Levy

  • Tutoring is an excellent opportunity to work one-on-one with our Master Teacher or Hebrew tutors. This enables students to work at their own pace and schedule. If you are unsure of your child’s schedule for the school year and think that he or she may have other activities that will conflict with Hebrew classes, you should consider the tutoring option

* Please Note

All options cover the same material and use the same book.
