A Personal Note From Chuck Lieberman
The THC Hebrew School in its present incarnation is my own creation. I am the Hebrew teacher.  I love the Hebrew language; I have learned much while teaching, and I know considerably more than my students. I might add that I find teaching Hebrew  very satisfying.  All of this began when I taught my own son his Bar Mitzvah. Then Marina Chase asked if I could do her Bat Mitzvah and it continued from there. 

We learn the Hebrew Alphabet first of all. I teach the common blessings. I teach the stories of the Torah, the morality and ethics of Judaism, the history of the Jews, Bible stories, translation and grammar of Hebrew, and finally I tutor students individually for bar and bat mizvot.  Adults are always welcome. I also encourage parents to stay for the lessons as adults tend to elevate the pedagogical atmosphere.

Not every child has a religious inclination. But every child deserves a shot, a taste of the marvelous Jewish world that is out there and that I seek to convey to the best of my abilities.
Baruch Hashem
