"One of a kind Hebrew language curricular texts which are truly remarkable."

~ Dr. Doran Katz, Professor at The Hebrew School at Middlebury College

The curriculum consists of 19 workbooks in six different themes: Family, the Seasons, Home, Animals, Hobbies, and Games.

Each theme is divided into three different workbooks that allow continuum learning. For example, under the subject of 'My Family', in the first booklet students can learn about the immediate family. In the second booklet, they will focus on different families' characteristics, the Hebrew calendar and its connection to the subject of family. In the third booklet, they will learn about the extended family and the relationship between different members.

You are welcome to select the themes and workbooks you would like to teach and your students would enjoy!

You can combine different workbooks from other themes, i.e.: ‘My Family 1' and ‘Israel in the Four Seasons 2’.
