Emek for Non-Hebrew Speakers

AgesK-1st grade & Ulpan Program for Adults

Emek and Ulpan are a Hebrew and Israeli cultural program, offered in a fun, hands-on way for non Hebrew speakers to learn another language. Emek offers classes for children in kindergarten through 1st grade as well as Ulpan classes for adults.

Emek offers an annual after-school program for children in kindergarten through 1st grade who are interested in learning modern Hebrew.

At Emek, our goal is to provide a fun and engaging environment where students can learn and grow. Our experienced and dedicated teachers are passionate about the language and culture of Israel, and they will work with each student to help them reach their full potential.

Emek is also proud to offer Ulpan classes for adults with little to no knowledge of the Hebrew language. Ulpan classes are held in the morning and in the afternoon, to benefit all schedules.

Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of each individual learner, and our classes are small and personalized to ensure that each student gets the attention they need to succeed.

Learning Environment

At Emek, we are committed to making Hebrew education accessible and enjoyable for everyone. We believe that learning a new language is a valuable and rewarding experience, and we are proud to be a part of helping students achieve their goals.

A supportive and engaging learning environment is imperative to fostering meaningful learning. We offer small, homogeneous groups with personal attention to ensure that each student receives the support they need.

Our classrooms are equipped with everything needed to provide the most diverse and effective Hebrew education.

The limited number of students in each group allows for small group interaction that encourages dialogue and sharing in Hebrew. Emek’s small groups enable personal attention tailored to the needs of the children.

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.
