JLearnHub is working to create a broad base of learning materials to support self-paced learning environments in Hebrew schools and Jewish day schools.
We currently offer two fully coordinated Hebrew curricula, and more are in the works!

Hebrew Step-By-Step: Hebrew Decoding
Self-Paced | Accessible Design | Online Reinforcement | ShalomLearning LMS**
One of the most versatile tools we can provide our students to help them foster a connection to Judaism is the ability to decode (read) Hebrew words.
8 packets available as printable PDFs and SlideDecks for screen sharing/projecting
Formatted on the principles of Accessible Design – colors, layout, fonts, and more boost decoding success for learners with a wide range of abilities
Note: Though designed in full color, all HSBS materials are thoroughly accessible when printed in grayscale or for learners with various forms of colorblindness.
Exposes learners to multiple fonts and the translation of every real Hebrew word; fake practice-words are grey and phased out as quickly as possible.
Highlights a “Silly Hebrew Trick” mnemonic device that relates to both the sound and shape of each letter
Read Aloud & Speed Read pages with JiTap soundboards in the JiTap app, www.JLearnHub.com, and the ShalomLearning LMS*
Soundalike Matching, Lookalike Letter Hunt, Sound Count, Reverse-It and other activities/puzzles
LMS* Add-On: Individual student progress tracking, lesson soundboards & games, written & audio recording assignment uploads, achievement badges, & more!
Beit Midrash Prayer Guides: T'fillah Literacy
Self-Paced | Online Reinforcement | Modular + Customizable
Accessible Design | ShalomLearning LMS*
We often tell our students that if they learn the Hebrew prayers, they can walk into any synagogue in the world and feel at home. JLearnHub's Beit Midrash curriculum offers students the opportunity to gain the level of synagogue t'fillah literacy to make that possible.
Modular & packet-based: build a T’fillah curriculum to meet your community’s goals
Available as PDFs, editable Word Documents, & SlideDecks for screen-sharing or projecting
Balanced emphasis on both meaning-making and recitation skills
Formatted on the principles of Accessible Design – colors, layout, fonts, and more boost T’fillah literacy success for learners with a wide range of abilities
Note: Though designed in full color, all BMPG materials except the color-coded translation appendix are thoroughly accessible when printed in grayscale or for learners with various forms of colorblindness.
Typical packet contents: (1) Cover Page; (2) Ready, Set, Prep! meaning-making questions,
(3) “Cold” Read, (4) Translation, (5) Break It Down! (meaning-making questions), (6) Recitation Practice, (7) Get Creative! artistic activity (illustration, photography, poetry, etc.) (8) Appendices (Offline Resource Sheet, Color-Coded Translation)
Students “create” their own translations of every prayer using a word bank, then answer meaning-making questions based on their translation
JiTap soundboards & Prayer Karaoke videos are available in their respective apps, on www.JLearnHub.com, and the ShalomLearning LMS*
LMS* Add-On: Individual student progress tracking, prayer soundboards & review games, written & audio recording assignment uploads, achievement badges, & more!
* Both JLearnHub Hebrew curricula are also available through our partner, ShalomLearning, with a full online Learning Management System (LMS) that offers individual student progress tracking, assignment & recording uploads, and more, as well as ShalomLearning's full-time support staff for both technical and pedagogical concerns.
