Hebrew School

The AKSE Community Hebrew School was known for going Beyond the Basics, offering children age 5–12 a superior Jewish education taught by an experienced and caring staff from modern Jewish educational materials and fun, meaningful activities.

We strove to help each student master the skills needed to become knowledgeable, active, and comfortable participants of the Jewish community.

Study and experiences focused on

  • Jewish history, customs, Bible, and prayers
  • Biblical and modern-day Israel
  • Hebrew language
  • Holidays and mitzvot
  • Social interaction with other Jewish children

Instruction was tailored to meet each child’s specific needs, including those with learning differences.

Classes met Wednesdays 4:00-5:45 pm and on Sundays 9:00-11:30 am.

Junior Congregation met once a month on Shabbat mornings 10:30-11:45 am.

Our excellent education was available to all children, whether or not the family belonged to a synagogue.
