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.
