The Chabad Hebrew School (in Old Thornhill) is an innovative afternoon school formed with one goal: to provide a venue where the Jewish child can cultivate a broad knowledge of Judaism in a stimulating and challenging environment. We aim to bring the joys, values and traditions of our heritage vividly to life.
Our teachers are dynamic, experienced and in-touch with the culture of our youth today. They communicate in ways children can relate to and appreciate. By using the latest textbooks and a creative approach to the curriculum and teaching methods, they encourage our students to explore their Jewish identity in a meaningful and relevant way.
This program will stimulate your child's thirst for knowledge. Our fully developed curriculum is enhanced by varied programming that includes Jewish music, field trips, holiday arts and crafts workshops, and current events. Serious text study is mixed with classroom discussions on a myriad of subjects. Occasional guest speakers will give our students a more integrative, exciting and personalized experience as they study particular subjects.
The Hebrew School program has been remarkably effective in catering to families from all walks of Jewish fife. Indeed, everyone can feel comfortable with our style and approach - because Chabad is non-judgemental and welcomes every Jew, regardless of religious background or level of observance.
