About us

An educational program taught in an interactive way that offers a hands-on, meaningful experience. The Aleph Art Room provides social and engaging classes that are the canvas for feelings, expression, and connection towards Judaism. JUDAISM through ART & MUSIC “Not your typical Hebrew School”

At Chabad our goal is simple: We want our students to view Judaism in an intelligent, relevant and upbeat light. By year's end, along with the Aleph-Bet, Holiday learning Jewish history and the Mitzvot, your child will have developed a deep love and appreciation for their precious heritage, imbuing their every day with a sense of pride and purpose. Our curriculum includes Jewish History, Culture, Hebrew Language, land of Israel and Prayer.

Our Staff

The Aleph Art Room prides itself in our staff. Our staff is made up of teachers who live Judaism on a daily basis. Staff members are imbued with a desire to impart their love and knowledge of Judaism to their students. Our teachers endeavor to create an engaging program that keeps the interest of the child.
