Learning Environment

Emek teamโ€™s goal is to enable learning in a pleasant, encouraging and challenging atmosphere. We emphasize learning in small homogeneous groups as possible with suitable teacher-students ratio.

The limited number of students in each group allows to have a group interaction that encourages dialogue and sharing in Hebrew, meaningful learning and social gathering. On the other hand,  Emekโ€™s small groups enable personal attention tailored to the needs of the children.

The dividing to learning groups is based on the Hebrew level, in the fields of speech, understanding, reading and writing, together with age and personal suitability. Each new student in Emek will be invited brief introductory session by which we will determine his placement in a group.

In Emek we benefit from the JCCโ€™s classes and facilities. Our classrooms are accessorized with the best equipment required to teach Hebrew in the most diverse and proper way.

Emek teachers have many years of experience in teaching the relevant age group, in Israel and within the Israeli community in the United States.

Please note: According to the program’s policy, photography and videos of the students is done on an ongoing basis for future advertising and marketing purposes. If you do not want your child’s photos to be used, please contact Emek’s administrative director by email prior to the beginning of the school year.
