    The Beged Kefet Vision

    Beged Kefet* is a community school where students are taught the Hebrew language. Classes are immersed in Israeli culture and incorporate lessons about Jewish holidays. Beged Kefet was created by the community and encourages their involvement and participation. The atmosphere is welcoming and supportive. 

    The Beged Kefet community aspires to lead and excel in teaching the Hebrew language and instilling Jewish-Israeli-American values. The curriculum is based upon the richness and variety of the Jewish/Israeli culture, while deepening one's connection with Israel. The school administration and teaching staff view teaching as a mission and are committed to new ideas, creativity and professionalism.

    *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.
