The Brandeis Hebrew Charter School Institute trains Hebrew Language Coordinators to oversee and develop the Hebrew instructional program at their school and especially to help Hebrew teachers strengthen their instructional practice, develop curriculum, and assess student learning. 

Highlights of the Institute’s training program:

The Brandeis Hebrew Charter School Institute is generously supported by the Hebrew Charter School Center, which has been instrumental in creating a number of Hebrew Charter Schools in the U.S., and continues to support the development of new ones. These public charter schools offer a special focus on learning Hebrew language and culture to students with diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Hebrew charter schools are currently educating children in Brooklyn, NY and in East Brunswick, NJ. New Hebrew language charter schools will be opening in September 2013 in Harlem, NY, Washington, D.C., San Diego and Los Angeles, CA.
