It's time to turn Hebrew learning on its head!

Let’s Learn Hebrew Side-by-Side offers new answers to when we teach Hebrew and how.

A revolution is afoot in the teaching of Hebrew in part‐time Jewish educational settings. Why? As one Jewish educator has noted, “the cat is out of the bag…. too many sixth graders at the end of their ‘Hebrew School’ studies are still struggling to decode Hebrew.” The goals and curriculum that have been in place for decades across North America are not serving our students as well as they did when children attended three days a week. This decades-old-model also doesn’t honor the sound-to-print progression by which children learn to read in their native tongue. Thus Hebrew decoding becomes much harder a process than it needs to be.
