Hebrew Education Vision Statement

The Torah is a tree of life to those who take hold of it, and those who support it are praiseworthy. Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace”  Mishlei 3:17-18

The Baruch HaShem Hebrew Department recognizes the Hebrew language as a unique expression of our Jewish heritage, and as a vital link connecting national Israel with the Diaspora.  It is the goal, therefore, of the Hebrew Department to equip the Baruch HaShem kehila that they may be able to: fully participate in corporate worship of the G-d of Israel; learn how to study the Tanach in its original language and Hebraic thought; and pass to the next generation the rich heritage of the Hebrew language. We also recognize the need to help educate the greater Messianic Community in Biblical Hebrew that they may better understand the teachings of our Jewish Messiah in their Hebraic context; therefore our Hebrew School is open to that community as well. As a Messianic congregation, our worship is expressed through Hebrew liturgy in prayer and song. Often chanting the Hebrew liturgy with Kavanah (wholehearted devotion) and worshipful singing we are able to enter into the depths of worship. Therefore, it is important that congregants understand the origin and significance of the liturgy being used in the Baruch HaShem services, and be able to participate with Hebrew literacy and comprehension. This objective will be met through the Alef Bet, where the rudiments of the language are taught; and Prayers & Blessings, where the history and literacy of various Siddur prayers are taught. It is also a major objective of the Baruch HaShem Hebrew Department to equip the children of Baruch HaShem to fulfill the mitzvah of making aliyah to the Torah. A course of study including Alef Bet, the Shalom Ivrit series, and Cantillation Tutoring has been established to help impart to our children a love for Torah and the Hebrew language. The knowledge of Biblical Hebrew will enhance the Bible study of Yeshua’s talmidim (disciples) and facilitate accuracy in translation and Hebraic thinking. This objective is met through the Biblical Hebrew courses.
