A comprehensive program called Lehavin U’Lehaskil (To Understand and Discern) has been developed to help students gain a mastery of the Hebrew Tanach text. It focuses on providing teachers a systematic approach to teach our students how to learn Tanach independently in the original Hebrew text. It empowers children by teaching them the skills needed to become confident, independent learners of Tanach, through decoding and translating words, phrases and verses from the Biblical text. This curriculum provides standards and assessments, and a clear, organized, systematic approach to teach the children skills, high frequency words and sharashim (verb roots). Workbooks, Teacher Editions, digital versions, and various manipulatives are used to slowly teach – step by step – all the skills needed so that all children – on any level – can achieve mastery of the language of Tanach.

One kit, for instance, considers how Jews were represented onscreen in the early days of cinema, while another explores the cheder, the first educational experience for young boys in the shtetls of Eastern Europe. Others look at specific works of literature, from Isaac Bashevis Singer’s famed story “Gimpel the Fool” to Sholem Aleichem’s beloved Tevye the Dairyman character (the basis for Fiddler on the Roof). More kits will be added in the coming months.
