Yavneh’s Middle School Hebrew program offers leveled programming designed to fit the skills of each student. Students are divided into small groups according to their ability, enabling new students to fit comfortably into the program.

The students continue to develop their conversational fluency and their writing skills by using Israeli music, poems, stories, newspaper articles, and a variety of books. Students create projects using Hebrew in many creative ways. Daily immersion in spoken and written Hebrew is used in all levels. This helps students to experience the Hebrew language and gain confidence as they practice.

Yavneh maintains a commitment to “deep textuality” engaging students in the study of sacred texts in their original language - Hebrew. As literary archeologists, students engage in character analysis of biblical personalities, probe shifts in Hebrew, and debate the articulation of a motif.
