At Temple Sinai, we use a multi-tiered approach to teaching Hebrew based in the #Onward Hebrew philosophy. The four components of the program are Hebrew Through Movement, Jewish Life Vocabulary, T’filah, and Hebrew Decoding. Noar Hebrew addresses decoding and t’filah (prayer) with an additional session each week devoted to Hebrew learning in grades 4th–6th.

Expanding on the oral Hebrew language foundation built during their Shoreshim and Chaverim years, students in Orim add an hour of Hebrew each week. The goal of the Orim Hebrew program is to expose our students to the written component of the Hebrew language and actively engage students in their Hebrew studies. The experience begins with teaching our students basic Hebrew decoding. Orim students then apply their Hebrew literacy through prayers and melodies to achieve Jewish life skills.

To best fit this hour into a routine that suits your family, there are several options available Sunday–Thursday:

  • Hebrew Chavurah in your neighborhood
    • Students meet in a chavurah (small group) of 3-6 students weekly Sunday-Thursday for Hebrew instruction in homes, community centers or local schools. Students in the Hebrew Chavurah program will be placed into small groups based on grade, location, and Hebrew levels (if possible). 
  • Hebrew Chavurah (group of friends) at Temple Sinai
    • This is the same as the neighborhood Chavurah except that students meet after Noar Sunday at Temple Sinai.
  • Virtual Chavurah with Atlanta Hebrew Connection
    • For those interested in virtual Hebrew learning, we have partnered with the Atlanta Hebrew Connection to provide small group learning online throughout Atlanta. This program is run through the Jewish Federation of Atlanta and ShalomLearning.
  • Private Tutoring 
    • We offer the option of getting a 1-on-1 private tutor (from the approved tutor list) if neither the Hebrew Chavurah or Virtual Hebrew program works for you.  If you are considering this option, please contact the Noar office to ensure it will accomplish your goals for your child.

New this year! As students enter 6th grade and take advantage of all the opportunities middle school has to offer, our Zehut Hebrew program shifts to a one- on-one structure providing a more personalized and flexible approach. Students will meet with their tutor for approximately twenty, half-hour sessions throughout the year. This new structure allows us to respond to each student’s needs and schedules.
