“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 Rachel 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.”

Through Hebrew reading and writing, Jewish history, holidays and more, students gain an appreciation of the joys, values, and traditions of Jewish heritage.

“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 assistant director, Chana Greene, “Our motto is ‘Learn It, Love It, Live It.’”

Registration is now open. Classes are held on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Chabad Jewish Center 90 Beaver Ave in Clinton.
