Grades K - 7 and Beyond
Through mentoring and inspired learning our students excel as they become Bar/Bat Mitzvah. We meet the needs of all our student through individual and personalized attention.
By using art and music we spark an awareness and explore Jewish Culture. Through music and motion, the ruach (enthusiasm) soars to new heights as the students enjoy expressing their Jewish identity The classroom studies come alive as we sing the words we have learned and put a lively dance step to a familiar song. Singing in a new language is unequaled and dancing is exciting. Hebrew, Yiddish and Ladino folk songs are offered to each grade level as we explore the many worlds of Jewish religion. Judaism is a joyous experience @ the DHJC.
The Joy and Magic of Jewish Learning
It is our belief that a religious education is a cooperative venture between the Rabbi, the teachers, the educators and the parents. We must all walk "Yad B'Yad", (hand in hand) to meet the exciting challenge of providing our children with a meaningful Jewish educational experience filled with amazing adventures into Jewish learning and living. At The Dix Hills Jewish Center Hebrew School, Jewish education begins with Kindergarten class, continues through Bar and Bat Mitzvah and on through Hebrew High School. Our dynamic program strives to encompass all relevant Jewish topics. It provides a basis for lifetime Jewish learning, knowledge and participation.
