Philosophy & Goals

The Erdi Elwood Hebrew School has a stimulating and friendly environment, where children can embrace their Jewish roots and gain a true sense of Jewish pride.

Throughout the year the children will cover Hebrew reading and writing, Jewish festivals, our history, Israel, the Torah, Jewish pride and values and so much more. All lessons are run in a fun, interactive way including arts & crafts, plays, activities and workbooks. Classes are kept small to give each child the attention he or she may need.

Our goal is simple: By year’s end, along with the Aleph-Bet, Holiday learning and Hebrew literacy, your child will have developed a deep love and appreciation for their precious heritage, imbuing their every day with a sense of pride and purpose.

Our underlying approach is for the children to enjoy the time spent at Hebrew School so that they are left with positive feelings and fond memories of their Jewish education.

Our school welcomes every Jewish child, regardless of religious background or level of observance. It is for this reason that we do not require any membership or prior affiliation to be part of our Hebrew School family.

We endeavour that each of our students should…

  • Attain a strong sense of love of Judaism and pride in being Jewish.
  • Feel a sense of belonging in the Jewish community, to find their unique place in Jewish history, and to share in the destiny of the Jewish people.
  • Discover and explore the Torah, the incredible history of the Jewish people and see its relevance in modern times.
  • Gain an understanding of the practices and traditions of Judaism.
  • Know the morals and values taught by our Torah.
  • Have a hands-on experience and appreciation for all Jewish holidays.
  • Master Hebrew reading and writing skills.
  • Learn basic prayers so they will feel comfortable when attending Shule.
  • Identify with the Land of Israel and its people.
  • Feel comfortable expressing their opinions and questions.

Indeed, a child equipped with an education and a feeling for Judaism’s beautiful teachings, traditions, and historical lessons is a child better equipped to face the awesome moral challenges of today’s society.
