Beginning with Sunday morning 2nd grade classes in pre-reading skills, Hebrew instruction continues with Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning sessions for students in 3rd through 6th graders. Wednesday’s classes meet 4:15 – 6:15 in the classrooms of Hebrew Academy. The area’s Conservative synagogues created This United Hebrew School to provide language instruction in a way that brings the children all together. Students learn to read Hebrew, to understand key words, concepts, rituals and meanings, and to chant prayers. As followup to the Wednesday classes, a UHS teacher reviews with the students for an hour of Hebrew on Sundays in each shul for each grade.
