Here’s some common questions about Chabad Hebrew School Longmeadow.

What topics do you teach?

Each class is designed to help you reach your educational goals for your children. Topics include Hebrew language, Jewish history, Tefillah (prayer), Parsha (weekly Torah portion), Holidays, Jewish stories and songs, Mitzvot, and Community Values. We’re always open to new ideas, too!

If classes are small, how will my child make other Jewish friends?

We offer exciting programming throughout the year that brings children from all of our classes together. These include holiday events like Shofar Factory, Menorah Building, and Matzah Bakery. While these may be held virtually this year, your child will get to feel that they are part of a larger group.

How often do classes meet?

You have the option to sign up for 6-week sessions at a time or for the full year (30 weeks). Classes are one hour each with a 30 minute add-on option available.

Sounds great! But we’re [not that religious/we’re new to this whole Hebrew School thing], will it still work for us?

Regardless of your Jewish background or level of Jewish education, Hebrew School by You is a great choice! Because we tailor-design each class based on its participants, Hebrew School by You can work for anyone, from students with no Jewish background to Jewish day school graduates, and everyone in between.

What do you mean when you say “the location of your choice?”

While certain COVID restrictions are in place classes will be offered via Zoom/ in person at CHS Longmeadow (LYA)/ at an outdoor location of your choice (weather permitting).

These guidelines will be revisited as we transition to colder weather and as restrictions are lifted.

How do the group classes work? What if I don’t know another family to join with my child?

Our group class rate requires a minimum of 2 families or 3 children. It’s great when children learn with friends as they can develop great friendships and learn from questions and comments posed by their peers. So whenever possible, we will do our best to help you pair your child up with at least one other child at their grade level.

In some cases, private tutoring will better help your child achieve their goals, so we are offering that too.

With all the customization and privatized learning, is the program super expensive?

We do our best to make our program accessible to all Jewish families. That’s why no child is ever turned away from our programs for lack of funds. Our prices are beyond competitive and are all-inclusive. There are no membership fees, book fees, or registration fees.
