Hebrew School begins

Sunday, October 9, 2022 • 14 Tishrei 5783

 

Hello Parents/Grandparents,

I am so excited to announce that Hebrew School is about to kick into gear. Our first day of class will be October 9th.

The calendar is mostly set for the year but is subject to change as synagogue and Greater Jewish Wilmington events are scheduled throughout the year. We have a number of Youth and service events scheduled, which is sure to make for a fun and well-rounded experience.

Please register for school by September 11th so that appropriate class pods can be assigned. For Hebrew High School students 8th grade and up, please let me know your preference for meeting times so we can schedule our meetings and service trips for the year. 

This year, tuition for school for synagogue members will be $300 for the 1st child, $150 for the 2nd child and no charge for any additional students. However, no student will be turned away from learning if there is a need, thanks to the new Sisterhood Janice Kingoff Jewish Education Fund. Please be in touch with me directly if you need a scholarship. 

Tuition for non-members will be $500/child. Please let us know if you are interested in becoming members as we would love to welcome you to the family.

Hebrew School tution helps pay for our teaching staff, materials, off-set cost to special events, and Bnai Mitzvah tutoring tools. If you are in the position to donate more on top of tuition, it would only enhance the program. We are very grateful for your donations.

Please see color coded calendar to get a scope of the year. Sundays are our “normal” Hebrew School Days, meeting from 10-11:30 am. Youth and Special Family events are open to the entire Jewish community regardless of synagogue affiliation. In addition, as part of Hebrew School, I will offer all students individual or group Hebrew lessons for 30 minutes during the week whenever it fits into their schedule on ZOOM or in person. 

I hope you will attend the upcoming family events this High Holiday Season (for more information about High Holiday tickets, events, and High Holiday Family services, go the to High Holiday 2022 banner on the website or call the office):

  • What a great time the kids - and the adults(!) had on May 16th. Another school year finished!!
  • Which one was the most fun?? Making ice cream? Cooking blintzes?  Papercrafting flowers? Putting on a play?
  • It was the adults who had the most fun! Watching their kids and grandkids enjoying these projects and being actors in a play about the giving of the Torah.  The grownups also got to spend time with Amy Ripps, our lead teacher, discussing Shavuot and the Book of Ruth.
  • Thank you to Amy for such a fantastic program and to teachers Sasha Freedland and Grace Gleason for joining us to mark the beginning of summer!  See you next year!!
