Cohen Family Religious School

Enroll your child in the Alef-Tav Experience!

Lifelong Jewish identity starts here!

Representing the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the Alef-Tav Experience symbolizes the all-inclusive approach to Jewish education for children ages 3 through 15 that emphasizes the cultural, social, spiritual, and historical aspects of our Jewish identity.

 

Not your Bubbe’s or Zayde’s Hebrew School: The Alef-Tav Experience is rooted in the belief that our school’s curriculum must be highly interactive, engaging, relevant, and fun to maintain the interest and attention of today’s increasingly distracted and overwhelmed youth. 

 

How your child will learn: The Alef-Tav Experience is just that, a highly involving and active encounter between students and teachers where students learn by doing - often through group projects. Through this highly novel and effective approach, your child’s teacher serves as the guide on the side and not the sage on the stage.

 

Experiential and project-based learning is enriched by the multi-sensory fusion of art, music, drama, reading, writing, and kinesthetic activities.

 

At every stage of learning, students are encouraged to think deeply, reflect, and express themselves. Throughout the course of their Religious School years, children learn Jewish values, traditions, mitzvot, and other rituals that help shape a lasting Jewish identity for life. Each unit of instruction also includes a strong home and family connection.

 

Enroll your child today! Take the first step to ensure a fun and rewarding Jewish education your child will enjoy receiving.
