Ivrit program promotes love of Israel


An integral part of the Ivrit (Hebrew Language) Program at the Hebrew Academy is the appreciation and love for the the Land of Israel.

Our students composed letters for the IDF showing our support, love and appreciation for their sacrifice to defend and protect the Holy Land. We pray for your safety!

Lag B'Omer at Hebrew Academy

Through stories, songs, crafts, and games we learn about the significance of every holiday creating meaning, joy, and appreciation for who we are as a community - and Lag B'Omer is no different.

This year Lag B'Omer was celebrated with an amazing day of awesomeness that was arranged by our PA. Large moon bounces filled our back field and the smiles, laughter and fun filled the campus with delight.

To acknowledge the significance of the day the lower school was treated to archer. Thanks to Roei every child had an opportunity to safely shoot the bows and arrows and hit the targets!

Of course Lag B'Omer would not be complete without dancing and a bonfire. Nothing quite like the Hebrew Academy celebrations!

Wow! What a celebration! Huge shout out to our Upper School for taking us on a trip through Israel, for sharing your passions for the country and for teaching us so much.

From a delicious falafel lunch, making bath salts at the dead sea, fishing and boating in the Kineret, making Sand Art in Eilat, putting notes in the western wall, getting juice from a juice bar in Tel Aviv, learning about the holy city of Tzfat and milking a cow in the Kibbutz - we learned, enjoyed and got a taste of our homeland.
