Education

Marathon Jewish Center's Hebrew School is on a new adventure beginning in September, 2012. We are partnering with Lake Success Jewish Center to create a larger school where children will have more opportunities to meet other Jewish children, and where their families will be included in the education process.

 

Our Hebrew School begins at age 5 and our goal throughout the years is to inculcate the joys & responsibilities of being Jewish via texts & tech, Hebrew, Torah studies, the arts including stories, music, & creative arts activities, and, of course, real life celebrations of the holidays and special events. A Hebrew High School program is being created with a focus on social action which will be open to our post Bar/Bat Mitzvah students.

 

The children attend classes on Wednesdays from 4:15 - 6:15 and on Sunday mornings from 10:00 - 11:30. Our Sunday School actually meets on Wednesdays during these same hours.

 

Throughout the year, there will be a variety of family education programs which are part of our Hebrew School and an extension thereof: Shabbat activities including dinners, family services, and havdalah; Sunday experiences including learning how to be a Jewish family via holidays & Jewish experiences in the home, and social action; and celebrations - as many as a Jewish year holds!

 

We presently have children from a number of areas in Queens and Nassau counties - Douglaston, Bayside, Whitestone, Lake Success, & Great Neck. It would be our pleasure to welcome your children and your family into our synagogue and our Hebrew School.
