What: Kivun is a Jewish after-school program developed exclusively for students who attend Harlem Hebrew Language Academy Charter School. At Kivun, our goal is to provide our students with the knowledge they need as Jews today, as well as inspire them to imbue their Jewish practice with Kavanah, with meaning and intent. We use an experiential and text-based approach, and use our neighborhood as an extension of our classroom. Currently, we have classes K-3.

Hebrew Helpers:

Kehillah Family Learning 
Who: Families of Harlem Hebrew Language Academy, both adults, students and siblings
When: We meet once per month on Shabbat afternoon (typically from 3:00-5:00 PM). Additional community-wide holiday events are held on Friday evenings or Shabbat afternoons once a trimester.

Where: We meet in family homes for the small group learning events (typically on the Upper West Side and in Harlem). Larger community events are typically held in spaces throughout Manhattan, and often in Harlem.
What: Kehillah is an small group learning experience that takes place on Shabbat afternoons in the homes of Harlem Hebrew Language Academy families throughout the school year. It is designed to engage both HHLA students and their parents and siblings in an exploration of Jewish values, texts and rituals through both parallel and group learning. The interactive lessons are led by creative, engaging guides, and are designed to help children and adults alike reflect upon how Judaism informs both our daily lives and our experiences in the larger world. The learning flows into social/play time and a shared pot-luck meal, nurturing friendships and fostering community. All events are Shabbat-friendly and vegetarian/kosher. In addition, we also hold community-wide events each trimester, focusing on specific holidays and community values. These events are fun, engaging and content-rich, providing creative activities as well as opportunities to connect with other HHLA families and the communities in which we live. We would love for you to be a part of it!

Hebrew Helpers Bar/Bat Mitzvah Preparation & Small Group Jewish Learning
Who: We are open to students and families of every Jewish background, inter-faith, etc. We create personalized learning for each student or family and can help students at HLA Brooklyn or Harlem Hebrew to continue their Jewish learning building on their language skills from school.
When: As often as you would like.

Where: In your home. 
What: Hebrew Helpers has worked with families from all the Jewish movements, unaffiliated families and interfaith families, to provide traditional services or creative alternatives. Our aim is to provide young people with the tools to navigate their own Jewish identity through understanding Jewish history, culture, ritual and prayer. This ancient rite of passage can be a modern milestone when families and children assess their spiritual place in the community. Our dream is that no family that is looking for a deeper connection and comprehension of Judaism falls through the cracks. Our mentors work one-on-one with students, often supplemented by group and family sessions. Mentors come from varying backgrounds, from educators to camp counselors to writers and actors. All mentors have formal training in Jewish education and the crucial skill of Torah & Haftarah chanting. Hebrew Helpers will connect you with the best guide for your family.

The Jewish Education Project’s Hebrew Charter Jewish Enrichment Network is supported by a generous grant from The Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life.
