Chabad at the Beaches to offer another year of Hebrew school


Chabad at the Beaches will offer another year of Hebrew school starting Sept. 10 in Ponte Vedra to promote Jewish awareness and education.

The Beaches Hebrew school provides an academic environment for children to learn about Judaism. Students gain knowledge in Hebrew reading, writing, Jewish history and more.

Director of Chabad at the Beaches Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky says the school’s goal is for children to "have a great time," to "love Judaism" and "connect to their heritage." He also believes the program offers a first taste of Jewish learning in a creative, joyful, hands-on and interesting way.

“Our school’s underlying approach is for the children to enjoy the time spent at Hebrew school so that they are left with positive experiences and a greater appreciation for Jewish education,” added Leah Kurinsky, director of the Beaches Hebrew School. “Our students love coming, and we love seeing the sparkle in their eyes as they rush in the door Sunday morning. There is nothing that gives us greater joy than making Judaism so joyful and exciting for the children. They are often so busy having fun they don’t notice how much they are learning.”

The school utilizes a method of Hebrew reading called Aleph Champ and personalized attention for individual students to increase their rate of success.

Registration for Chabad Hebrew School is now open for the upcoming year of 2017 – 18.

The Hebrew School, housed at Chabad Center for Jewish Life at 521 A1A N. in Ponte Vedra, will open Sept. 10. Classes are held on Sunday morning and are offered for children aged 5-13. To visit the Chabad Hebrew School, schedule an appointment by calling (904) 543 9301 or e-mailing
