Hebrew is central to the religious and national identity of Shulamith students. The goal of the Hebrew Department is to foster the development of conversational Hebrew and literacy skills, including the study of grammar, syntax, and sophisticated literature. All students are required to take four years of Hebrew language. Multiple tracks in each grade meet the diverse needs of all students. In addition to helping students gain fluency in Hebrew, we strive to instill within our students a love of the Hebrew language, love of the land of Israel and the State of Israel, and a sense of personal connection to Israeli culture.
