Mechina/1st & 2nd Grade

Shalom, Yeladim!  Hello, Boys and Girls!  Get ready for fun!  Get ready for learning!  Get ready to find out all about being Jewish! I am a professional educator, experienced Hebrew School teacher, and joyful Jewish grandmother, and I am excited to be your Morah (teacher) for this engaging early childhood Jewish experience.

Mechina means readiness.  It is my intention to prepare your First and Second Graders to embrace their Jewish birthright and be ready – and excited – to learn more as they grow … And we will do that with great joy and fun.  Each session will include an introduction to the Alef-Bet so your children will be familiar with the Hebrew alphabet, simple Hebrew vocabulary words, age-appropriate activities to celebrate Jewish culture and holidays, and an entertaining and informative video or book.
