Dear Parents,

At the Dr. Cy Gruberg Hebrew School, we are always looking for fresh ways to engage students and make Jewish education exciting and meaningful. This year, we have worked hard to assemble a comprehensive and engaging curriculum that will motivate your child to blossom. Using educational tools, such as theater, crafts, and STEM, this experience is bound to capture the attention of each student. We encourage children to take a leadership role and contribute to the classroom setting using their unique creative abilities.

We are excited to share with you some important information for the upcoming year, 2022-2023/5783!

This year we will be focusing on Bereishit-Story of my life curriculum. We are also continuing CKids Club, as a project of the Dr. Cy Gruberg Hebrew School. We encourage all of our Hebrew School students & their families to attend. We welcome all friends of our Hebrew School children to join.

We are continuing with the Aleph Champ reading program. This innovative method draws on the martial arts motivational philosophy of color coded levels and testing. With professional and beautifully designed materials, the children work their way up the colors to be a “Black Aleph Champ!”

This year we are continuing the extra-curricular program called JewQ for all those children in grades 3-7. The JewQ is the international Torah Championship where children learn and get tested on basic concepts in Judaism. Master the material along with children from Chabad Hebrew schools around the world! More details to follow.

Hebrew School will begin this year, G‑d willing, on Wednesday, September 14, 2022. All Jewish children are invited. Hebrew School will be every Wednesday, from 4:15-6:00 pm., at the Peter Schwalbe Center for Jewish Life Campus at 254 Lucas Ave. There is an option this year to drop off your child/ren at 4:00 pm to have extra reading practice time from 4:00-4:15 pm.

On May 31, 2023, We will have our 'End of the Year Ceremony.’

At the Dr. Cy Gruberg Hebrew School of Ulster County, families of all backgrounds and affiliations are made to feel welcome. Please invite your friends to visit our Hebrew School to learn more about our unique programs and curriculum.

Thank you all for entrusting your children's Jewish education in our hands! Our goal is to instill in each child a strong positive Jewish identity. We are looking forward to an enriching and enjoyable year.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and sweet New Year!
