Why we started hebrew to you

We dreamt that every Jewish child in Brooklyn has access to an engaging Jewish education that makes them proud of their heritage and breeds a sense of belonging in the Jewish community.

We wanted them to have an opportunity to experience and appreciate the Holidays, to explore Jewish history and values in a relatable way, to be comfortable in the language of their ancestors and familiar with the prayers sang in synagogues around the world.

We brainstormed how to make Jewish learning more relevant, personal and accessible in today's fast-paced world. Our experience and thinking led is to rethink the classic Hebrew School model and create a Jewish program that is accessible while still relevant, engaging, and fun. Thus, Hebrew to You was born.
