    Registration for the 2020–2021 school year is now open for the general public.

    Please note! We added a new and convenient payment option. You can reserve your spot in class by paying a deposit only (tuition payment will take place in mid-July).

    The first week of school is the week of August 31, 2020. Classes taking place on Mondays, will start on August 17, 2020 with two make-up classes. Lessons will be held either in classrooms, in virtual classes or in a combination of online and in-person lessons, based on the latest updates from CDC and the local school districts. 

    Beged Kefet* is a Hebrew language afterschool program for students in kindergarten through high school. It opened in September 2008 in response to the local community's need and has been located at the OFJCC since September 2009. Beged Kefet is a community school that operates with the local community and encourages parent participation and feedback. We offer multiple-level high school classes.

    Beged Kefet's purpose is to teach the fundamentals and improve the knowledge of Hebrew throughout the four language skills—reading, writing, speaking and comprehension. In addition to teaching the language, we emphasize and incorporate learning about Jewish holidays and Israeli culture in our curriculum, as well as integrating family activities in the different grade levels. High school students who take these classes are eligible for credit towards the high school foreign language requirement and prepare for the SAT II in Hebrew.

    Please contact us by email at [email protected] or [email protected] with any questions or concerns that you might have.



    *The name "Beged Kefet" comes from the six Hebrew letters that are emphasized (or in Hebrew, get a dagesh) when they appear at the beginning of a Hebrew word or syllable.
