Mission StatementMission Statement: The mission of Chabad Melville Hebrew School is to provide and promote the highest quality after-school Judaic education to a diverse community of Jewish children.

Our aim is to nurture and build the foundation of your child(ren)'s Jewish identity through our interdisciplinary educational approach. The focus of our dedicated teachers is to inspire a two fold love. A love for learning and a love for Judaism while fostering a feeling of familiarity within their heritage for each individual child.

A well-balanced Hebrew School education will develop in our students a commitment to using Torah values as a guide to the decisions of life, community, and life-long learning and teaching.

About our Hebrew School: If you have children that should be attending Hebrew School, or if you know someone who does, please give us a call at (631) 385-2424 A Hebrew School Your Children Will Actually Love.

The Chabad Hebrew School is an innovative one day a week school with one goal: to provide Jewish children with a broad knowledge of Judaism in a stimulating, creative, and challenging environment.

Located in the heart of Melville, the Hebrew School welcomes families from all walks of life. Every member of the School staff wants your child to feel comfortable with our style and approach regardless of religious background or level of observance.

Marvel at your children’s enthusiasm as they actually look forward to this fun-filled Hebrew school. Here, they will absorb the richness of their heritage and Jewish values while they learn Hebrew reading, and writing, Jewish history, arts and crafts, Jewish theater, songs, and hands-on enrichment. Children from all religious backgrounds are welcome.

We Make it Real! We Make it Fun! The success of a Hebrew school depends on two things: The genuine Hebrew and Judaic learning that takes place and the enthusiasm of the children who attend. The Hebrew School at Chabad of Huntington measures up on both counts. Parents continually comment that they could never imagine that their child would actually look forward to attending Hebrew school. As one parent told us: "I'm amazed that my children actually love Hebrew School. One day when they had to miss a class, they were so disappointed. — I think that speaks for itself."

What accounts for this success? Our Hebrew school delivers. Regardless of their religious background or level of observance, our students acquire a broad-based knowledge of Judaism in an appealing, action-packed, environment. Our teachers don't just give out the facts, they relate to the children individually and take a genuine interest in their personal success. Ultimately, students learn and have a blast. What more could you want from a Hebrew school?

In addition to student enthusiasm, our curriculum provides another strong reason for our success. Not only do we promote Jewish values, our program offers in-depth teaching of the Hebrew Language (reading, writing and vocabulary), Torah studies, Jewish History, arts & crafts projects, and hands-on holiday enrichment (skits, songs, model Seders, Sukkah-making, menorah designing etc.).
