Tuesday Hebrew School
Hebrew School is a weekday program for students in grades 3-7 that meets on Tuesday afternoon from 4:30-6:00 p.m. Hebrew School is held at Rockdale Temple, 8501 Ridge Road.
The goal of our Hebrew program is for our students to become knowledgeable in the structure and meaning of the Shabbat and holiday liturgy. We are educating our children for life-long learning and participation in congregational life, not for one specific lifecycle event. We use a combination of classroom instruction and web-based access to supplement each student’s learning, as well as providing parents with transliterations of the prayers and blessings. Please visit the following links to see some of the resources and the supplements that our teachers use:

Students learn in a group setting with others who are at a similar level. Approximately six months prior to a student’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah, an individual tutor will be assigned to each student to assist with learning his/her Torah and Haftarah portion.
