Director Chani Jacobson

Hi there! I’m Chani Jacobson and I am excited to join the Chabad of Henderson team as Hebrew School Director. For the past 2 years, I have been teaching in a premium Montessori school in NYC. I have worked hard at creating curriculums, lesson planning, and being an overall educator. I work with students on developing skills for learning, reading, and social/emotional growth.  I will bring my ambition, structured thinking, positivity and dedication into the role of Hebrew School Director. I hope to create an environment of cognitive growth as well as social and emotional development. My goal is to provide a space for your children to connect with Jewish peers in a loving atmosphere, and to enrich your children’s lives with an understanding and love for Torah and Judaism.

Rabbi Kalman Shor

Hola! Rabbi Kalman here. I have been involved with Chabad of Henderson in many different capacities over almost 20 years. Mostly, though, I teach. I have taught adults, teens and kids of all ages. But my greatest enjoyment comes from teaching our Hebrew School kids.  I love interacting with the kids and probably learn more from them than they do from me. I plan to provide the older group of Hebrew School students with a love for reading Hebrew and getting more involved with Jewish Holidays, Customs and Practices. 

 

Rebbetzin Gittie Shor

Hi. My name is Morah Gittie. I love teaching Hebrew School and I love the children very much.  My goal is to tell the children how amazing and wonderful it is to be a Jewish child, through davening, song, hands-on activities (like baking, art and crafts, etc.) and trips. I want to do all this in a positive, loving and warm way. In turn, they will have great memories of their learning experience about their Jewish heritage.
