Why It Works

Our students are immersed in a Hebrew-speaking environment centered around Jewish values. On Mondays and Wednesdays students focus on Hebrew speaking and literacy through games, stories and song along with Jewish rituals, holidays and traditions. Additionally, students can attend an additional "Peulot" day on which Hebrew is learned through activities such as sports, music, building, cooking, arts, nature/outdoor skills and more!

How it Works

Makom Afterschool meets throughout the school year, 3:30-5:30pm. Families choose from two or three days per week. The flexible program fits into your childcare needs and learning goals.

All children attend Monday and Wednesday Core Days—our key Hebrew and Jewish education days. Optional days are Tuesday or Thursday (depending on location). These Peulot (activity) days explore different topics through games, arts, music, sports, outdoor/nature skills, building, cooking and more. It’s all fun, and it’s done in an immersive Hebrew environment.

The focus of learning for ALL days is Hebrew and Jewish knowledge. This is accomplished through Hebrew immersion and experiential learning. Jewish learning is pluralistic and inclusive. Our teachers are experienced native Hebrew speakers. Learning is interactive and fun. Each day includes multiple activities to keep students engaged.

Our schedule for the 2019/2020 year will be:

Mondays/Wednesdays: Hebrew Immersion & Pluralistic Jewish Learning

Thursdays: Peulot - Art, Music, Sports, Nature/Outdoor Skills, Cooking, Drama, etc. in Hebrew
