CLINTON, NJ — Entering its 14th year, Chabad Hebrew School of Hunterdon County announces that registration is open to new students for the upcoming school year, which is set to begin on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Chabad Hebrew School invites potential new students and their families to visit the school, meet the staff and teachers, and enroll in a free one-month trial.

Chabad Hebrew School has grown to more than 60 children and enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trend-setter in creative Jewish education for children aged 3 to 13 years; Chabad’s Hebrew School features a dynamic, well trained staff and a student-to-teacher ratio that allows for individualized attention. The curriculum is cutting edge and the student body is from diverse backgrounds.

“Our students are from various backgrounds and affiliations and we have developed a teaching model that is able to adapt and cater to different levels of Jewish knowledge and experience,” says Hebrew School director Rachel Kornfeld. “Over the course of this past year, we have researched and trial-tested a variety of curriculums and instructional tools. We are excited to implement new and innovative programs and teaching methods, that will engage our students and enhance their experience, in the upcoming school year.”

Chabad Hebrew School of Hunterdon County is open to all and synagogue membership is not required.

Parents of Chabad Hebrew School students rave about their experience at Chabad. Jill McDonald, from Belvidere, mom to Ian and Ainsleigh, recently wrote, “I love Chabad Hebrew School because the teachers incorporate tons of hands-on activities that make learning about their heritage so much fun. I also feel that the teachers, rabbis and everyone at Chabad, are such positive role models and have a positive influence on my children.”

Laurie and Eric Berlinger, of Whitehouse, share the sentiments, saying, “We love Chabad Hebrew School because the teachers and the environment instill a sense of Jewish pride in the students. The students learn about the Jewish religion and traditions, which they can then share with their families.”

“As our Hebrew school continues to expand, we are committed to maintaining the warm, welcoming and personal feel as well as our teacher-student ratio intact. Chabad will therefore continue to hire even more qualified teachers as our student body grows,” said Kornfeld. “We interview all summer long. Even amongst teachers we have a reputation of excellence, warmth and professionalism. We have the opportunity to choose the most outstanding staff for our teaching opportunities.”

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. As Chaya Katz, third-grade Hebrew School teacher said, “Each lesson is created to engage all the senses so that the student feels an excitement and connection to the material being presented.” The program is thus carefully blended with games, incentives, crafts, dramatics, family celebrations and other exciting extracurricular activities.

“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 Rabbi Eli Kornfeld, “Our motto is Learn It, Love It, Live It.”

Registration for Chabad Hebrew School offers a first-month free trial and money back guarantee. Classes are held on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Chabad Jewish Center, 90 Beaver Ave. in Annandale, for children aged 3 to 13 years.

To schedule an appointment to visit Chabad Hebrew School, call 908-238 9002 or e-mail Rachel Kornfeld

To the editor,

Very often when I am out in the evening and heading home I will stop at the Flemington Wawa to get a cup of coffee. The first few times I stopped I was surprised to see the teenagers and young adults hanging out. After the first few times I figured out why.

Reiner's Conservative Hypocrisy

To the editor,

Regarding the recent TAPinto article that quoted Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner about a possible marijuana dispensary being located in his town, I crack up every time he opens his mouth and plants his pseudo-conservative foot in it.

According to the article, this staunch conservative Republican who blathers about the importance of personal freedoms every chance he ...

Reiner Doesn't Speak for Township Committee

To the editor:

In light of the recent letter to the editor from Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner regarding his personal opinion on arming school officials, we felt the need to share our views on his statement.

Mr. Reiner took this position as an individual citizen and not in his capacity as a member of the Township Committee. We wholeheartedly disagree with the notions of arming ...

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project. Initially the project was to find someone to ...
