Hebrew School

 

Baruchim habaim!

We welcome you and your children to the Marlboro Jewish Center Hebrew School. We are delighted that you have given us the opportunity to partner with you in the venture of Veshinantam Levanecha, teaching (Torah) diligently to your children.  With great enthusiasm and humility, we enter this brit, this covenant of bringing Jewish learning more fully into your lives and the lives of your children. We are firmly committed to the creation of a warm, respectful and safe environment in which we can learn and grow together as a community.  We all must see ourselves as responsible to ensure that Marlboro Jewish Center is a place that gives life to the values that we learn in Torah, Kavod (respect), Rachamim (compassion) and Chesed (kindness).

Our program begins with children of the Kindergarten and extends all the way through High Hebrew High, grade 12. We pride ourselves on a creative, experienced staff whose love of Judaism is shown in every class throughout the year. We have a hands-on curriculum that reflects current teaching styles and classroom management skills.

I can be reached at (732)536-2303 or via email at mjchs@mjcnj.com.

B’shalom,

Rabbi Ron Koas, Education Director / Associate Rabbi

HEBREW SCHOOL UPDATE 2017 - 2018

Dear Families,
This year has flown by! We were incredibly fortunate to have had so many great programs and events this year. Thank you so much for being a part of this truly special community. Here are a few highlights from the year:
Our family programs on school vacation days were hugely successful. Before Sukkot, we had a program for Grades K/1 and 2. We made crafts and learned about the holiday, and we were very thankful to the Sisterhood for providing the food. In December, we celebrated Hanukkah with our annual community candle lighting. When the program ended, we enjoyed chocolate gelt and latkes provided by the MJC Sisterhood and Men’s Club. In the spring, the “Matzah Man” came to teach the 3rd graders how to make Matzah for Passover.
All grades this year had two family Shabbat service dinners at the Synagogue. It’s so wonderful when the school fills the sanctuary with students and their families, who kvell over their children participating in the service. Shabbat services reinforce what our students learn in school, and it was inspiring to have such a high level of participation this year.
Our older students had a busy year as well. Highlights include when our 6th graders and their parents participated in our annual “Build-a-Pair” program World-Wide-Wrap, led by the Men’s Club. A special thank you goes to Cantor Krieger and Moreh Justin for leading the morning service. Students also had their annual Mock Wedding, officiated by Rabbi Koas and Cantor Teplitz. Morah Lori Schprechman put together the beautiful event, which of course ended with wedding cake!
For our 7th graders, in addition to learning Torah and Holocaust studies, the highlight of the year was Tikkun Olam. They spent ten hours performing acts of chesed at a charity or organization of their choosing. Their long hours paid off when they shared their projects and experiences in a special ceremony in the sanctuary, in front of family and friends.
 
 

 

 

At Hebrew High this year, the 8th and 9th graders held deep, meaningful conversations about Torah, Kashrut, ethics, and their relationships with G-d. Morah Cheryl & Moreh Justin facilitated these talks. Moreh Justin also introduced the 9th graders to their future roles as Madrichim in the Hebrew School. Further, Morah Cheryl and Morah Liz led discussions with out students regarding Social Justice and the parts we all play in supporting unified community. With these many ideas in mind, students participated in Social Action projects, such as the Elijah’s Promise program and a trip to Shop Rite to learn about shopping in poverty. The Confirmation students were taught by Rabbi Pont; they ended their year with a Shabbat/Confirmation Service.
This year, we also started to give Hebrew homework, which has proven successful for our students’ reading ability. Thank you, parents and families, for supporting this idea, and for helping us to make our program better.
As usual our second Zimriyah with Cantor Michelle Teplitz was a big success, and many parents enjoyed their children’s preforming.
Finally, this year we had a school-wide tzedakah collection. Jules Cohn sent all students home with JNF Blue boxes to collect tzedakah. In May, we collected all the cans; we raised $828 for the Jewish National Fund! “Kol hakavod” to all of our families!!
These are only some of the many events that took place. It was a great year! I am looking forward to hearing your input and continuing to build a better school together.
B’shalom,
Rabbi Ron Koas
