DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. - Chabad of the Rivertowns is offering one year of free tuition for Hebrew School kindergarten in response to what it called the growing need to provide easy, affordable access to Jewish education.

This program is available starting with the September 2013 school year.

Chabad of the Rivertowns does not require any synagogue membership for enrollment in Hebrew School. Chabad Hebrew School hours are Sundays, 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

“There is no doubt that the earlier children are engaged and involved in Jewish education, the greater the impact and long term positive effects there are for the child," said Rabbi Benjy Silverman. "In many cases, families hesitate to begin formal Jewish education at younger ages due to financial challenges. We hope that this free Kindergarten program will encourage families to begin their children’s education early on."

The goal of Chabad Hebrew School is to convey a well rounded knowledge of Jewish tradition and values in a way that children find exciting and meaningful. Lessons are planned according to each student’s level and include games, art, songs and contests.

Chabad's policy means every Jewish child is welcome, regardless of affiliation, religious observance or prior knowledge. The diverse student body provides a setting where each child is comfortable and able to learn at a relaxed pace.
