The Palm Beach Synagogue Hebrew School is a dynamic after-school program for Jewish education
It enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trendsetter in creative hands-on Jewish educational programming and Hebrew language instruction for children in Pre-K through Grade 7.
We are especially proud of our dynamic staff and the inclusiveness of our student body, with children from various private and public schools with varying backgrounds and affiliations. Our environment is one of openness and welcoming of families from all backgrounds. We acknowledge and are respectful of the diversity of our study body while emphasizing Jewish values of family, community, caring, joy, tradition and rituals.
What Parents Are Saying
The Palm Beach Synagogue Hebrew School is dedicated to providing a comprehensive Jewish education enabling our students to secure a deep understanding of our rich Jewish heritage, fluency in Hebrew reading, prayers and basic language skills. We strive to provide our students with a broad knowledge and understanding of Judaism which will empower them to be educated Jews who are proud of their Jewish identity and connect with G-d, His Torah and His people.
Through comprehensive Torah learning, holiday celebrations our students gain pride in the richness of their Jewish heritage, culture and history.
Keeping to our goals to illustrate Jewish life to the fullest – throughout the year we launch educational projects, initiatives and competitions – encouraging students to express their talents and creativity within a Jewish framework, while broadening our school horizons beyond the classroom.
Hebrew, particularly Hebrew reading, is the key to full and meaningful engagement in traditional Jewish experiences. Friday night Kiddush, Passover Seder and the High Holy Days all come alive at PBS Hebrew School. Through Hebrew, we not only give our students the skills and knowledge they need to be prepared for their B’nei Mitzvahs, but we lay the foundation for their ongoing involvement in Jewish life and community. Our goal is to provide new and exciting ways for our students to learn to read Hebrew.
Aleph through Taf ( Grades Gan K - K )
Children learn the names and sounds of the 22 letters of the Alef Bet in an entertaining and exciting way. As they learn the letters, students develop a basic Jewish vocabulary.
Aleph Champ Reading Program ( Grades 1 - 7 )
Our Hebrew reading program is a highly motivating and inspirational way of encouraging the students to progress rapidly through the different levels of reading Hebrew.
