Students will review Hebrew letters and vowels and will practice reading short prayers from the prayer book (siddur) and Torah.  In conversational Hebrew, students will master greetings and be able to talk about themselves. Topics

Our Israel studies will include basic geography of Israel, with a focus on the Golan Heights, and students will be introduced to what it is like to go to school in Israel.
