Hands-On New Year Traditions Opens Hebrew School

Josh Sheinberg and Alex Friedman ready the Torah for the High Holidays by dressing in the traditional High Holiday white coverings.

On Sunday September 9th Chabad of NW Metro Denver in Westminster will open its Hebrew school just in time for the upcoming High Holidays with hands–on crafts for the Jewish New Year.

The Jewish New Year is a very special time to start Hebrew school as it immediately immerses the children into the rich Jewish culture of the Holidays” says Leah Brackman the school director.

At Chabad Hebrew school the holidays and traditions come alive with hands-on projects. For the Jewish New Year in addition to learning about the significance and meanings of the holidays, students will braid and bake their own challah bread, craft honey dishes and design Rosh Hashanah greeting cards.

Hebrew school meets every Sunday from 10-12:15 pm and caters to children from 3-13 years of age of all Jewish backgrounds and affiliations. No synagogue membership is required.

The upcoming school year will also feature a number of new additions that include:

  • Pre-school class for three year olds.
  • New curriculum in Jewish history and life-cycle events, Jewish places, holidays.
  • Friday night Shabbat family dinners

The school also follows the very popular Aleph Champ program that adopts the color system used in karate –“white belt” to “black belt” — to motivate Hebrew reading.

The Hebrew school is conveniently located just south of the Westminster/Broomfield border on 4505 112th Ave. between Sheridan and Federal Blvd.
