Chabad Hebrew School of the Arts
Parents & Student Handbook



Imagine a Hebrew School where kids don’t want to miss a day! They come in with a smile and leave humming the tune to a Hebrew song. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism… and then imagine the pride of their parents!

Our goal is to provide Jewish children with an education that instills Jewish pride, conveys a meaningful and relevant understanding of Jewish life and Jewish history, and teaches Hebrew Language reading and writing.
We strive to provide a basis in which to enable our children to grow into warm and informed adults who will positively shape our communities in years to come.
In this booklet you will find all the necessary details for the upcoming year of Hebrew School .

Welcome to Chabad Hebrew School of the Arts

We are pleased that you have chosen Chabad Hebrew School of the Arts for your child’s education.  We will do everything in our power to make sure that your family’s Hebrew School experience will be enjoyable and inspiring, as well as provide warm memories for a lifetime. 

Our school is blessed with a staff of professional and dedicated individuals.  Each staff member spends hours planning lessons and designing creative methods to infuse fun and excitement into the program.  They are deeply concerned about the progress of each individual student and are always glad to spend time discussing your child’s progress with you. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us, should any concern or issue arise.


School Hours
Class begins promptly every Sunday at 9:30am.  Please be sure that your child arrives on time. Hebrew School ends at 11:30 am.
If you will be more than 10 minutes late for pick-up, please notify us at 862-324-5077

Tuition fees will be billed and should be paid on time.  Prompt attention to tuition fees is necessary as we depend on these funds for operation.


The first step in the right direction is for parents and children to recognize that attendance is the key to a successful Hebrew School. It’s important to show our children that Judaic studies are valued and are an integral part of their week. Parents should try to schedule all appointments, enrichment programs and extra-curricular activities around Hebrew School.  If you know in advance that your child will be missing a Sunday, please let us know the Thursday before.

Snow Days & Cancellations
In the event that Hebrew School should be canceled whether due to snow or unforeseen circumstances, you will receive an email by 8:00 am Sunday morning notifying you about the cancellation.  .

Students are provided with snacks during Hebrew School.  If your child is allergic to any food or beverages, please make sure that it is written down on his or her medical form. 

Tzedakah & Mitzvah Notes
Parents are requested to send in a coin or two each week so their child can give Tzedakah during class. This applies to all students in grades K-7.  Parents of children in grades K-2 are asked to please send a “Mitzvah Note” to Hebrew School each week.  A Mitzvah Note is a small note from the parents relating something positive their child has done throughout the course of the week.


iPhones or electronic games should not be brought to Hebrew School, as they can distract from learning.  If your child has a phone, please speak with your child about leaving it at home during Hebrew School.


Bagels & Coffee
Periodically at pick-up parents are welcome to enjoy fresh bagels and coffee, compliments of Hebrew School. This is a great opportunity to get to know other members of the community.


Holiday Programs
Throughout the course of the year, we will celebrate the Jewish holidays in Hebrew School. Parents are
encouraged to attend and participate in all Hebrew School holiday celebrations. 

Should you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out.
