Our Curriculum:

Welcome to our curriculum at Chabad at Monterra! Our main goal is to ensure that every student graduates with a positive outlook on Judaism's traditions, Hebrew Reading, Israel and Mitzvoth, providing them with a strong foundation for their future.

In our Hebrew Reading course, we use a unique approach called Aleph Champ. Similar to karate, students earn different levels, allowing them to become proficient readers of Hebrew at their own pace. Our ultimate goal is for each student to read 60 Hebrew words per minute, empowering them to engage with the language independently.

We believe in hands-on learning with a connected mitzvah. When exploring historical events, we incorporate a mitzvah component, enabling our students to appreciate the idea that stories from the Torah hold valuable lessons for us today. Through consistent prayer practice, our students learn how to navigate through the prayers, developing a meaningful connection with their spirituality.

Holidays play a significant role in our curriculum. We ensure that our students understand and embrace the ins and outs of each holiday, fostering a deep understanding and appreciation for their significance.

Our approach is consistent and fun, providing students with a wonderful and proven educational experience like no other. We are committed to equipping our students with the knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm to embrace their Jewish heritage and contribute positively to the world around them.
