About Ann Spak Thal Hebrew School
Ann Spak Thal Hebrew School welcomes students of diverse backgrounds and approaches to Judaism. We guide students through a comprehensive study of what it means to be a Jew in the 21st century. From biblical analysis to B’nai Mitzvah preparation, spiritual reflection to engagement with prayer and song, ethical debates to Israeli dancing, historic holidays to current events through a Jewish lens, trips and special guests to Jewish culinary exploration in our kitchen – we offer a Jewish journey like no other!
Our students come together from various backgrounds to pursue a Jewish journey on which they learn about history and modern milestones, roots and traditions, language and literature, and ethics and values. Our dynamic teachers encourage students to express themselves in different ways and to ask questions and seek answers through a variety of tools.
Our Hebrew School is seeking teachers who enjoy working with children ranging in age from Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Our teachers are dynamic Jewish educators that are excited about helping to inspire and excite a new generation of Jewish learners.
