Focus On Chabad Hebrew School

The Chabad-Lubavitch movement, a branch of Hasidic Judaism, saw its Genesis in Russia about 250 years ago. It is just as true, however, to call it a philosophy as a movement. At its core, the philosophy sits on its triad of principles; “Chabad” is actually an acronym for those principles: Chachmah, which means wisdom; binah, which means comprehension; and da’at, which means knowledge.

The Chabad Hebrew School and Chabad Early Learning Center are both operated under the auspices of Chabad of Northeast Queens, the organizational headquarters for the borough.

The Chabad Early Childhood Learning Center consists of a pre-nursery school, nursery school, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten program. The pre-nursery program begins at age 2. There is a half-day learning program for both 2 and 3 year olds and a full-day program for all ages. Additionally, parents can opt for 2, 3, or 5 days a week. Early drop off and late pick up options are also available.

The Chabad Hebrew School is designed for children ages 5-13 who are not receiving any Jewish training at all. The focus of the school’s curriculum is on the “beauty and warmth of Judaism and its Mitzvot (precepts).”

In addition to traditional studies, the Chabad Hebrew School offers Bar and Bat Mitzvah training.

Through Chabad-Lubavitch, students are exposed to a strong academic program as well as plenty of extracurricular activities to include games, sports, drama, songs, parties, and arts & crafts.
