Each teacher lives and breathes what he or she teaches, pro- viding the best possible model for the students. Staff mem- bers have extensive Hebrew language skills, and/or have attended teacher's seminar- ies. Through their education, they have learned the strate- gies to successfully share Judaism with children of all levels of knowledge and abil- ity. In addition to the Judaic studies that they teach, they understand the developmen- tal issues applicable to the age level of their students. This year Chabad of South Orlando has hi red another ac- credited teacher, Mrs. Davida Lessel, who is well known for her teaching expertise. The school director is Chani Koni- kov, who directs the "famous and awesome" Camp Gan Israel of Orlando. Chabad says that its teach- ers are as excited about teach- ing as the students are about learning. Through drama, song, art and stories, Judaism comes to life. Chabad's innovative methods make learning fun and memorable. Chabad stresses that the Hebrew language curriculum en- ables children to read from a Siddur (prayer book), so that no matter what synagogue a child affiliates with later in life, he or she will share the language of prayer with Jews around the world. Chabad believes that Bar and Bag Mitzvah is the most important event in the life of ayoungperson, and should be more than rote memorization leading up to an anxiety-rid- Shown here (lor) :Rabbi's Bar Mitzvah class, ELIRAN OHAYON, RYAN S CHECHTMAN, ALIX EKUS, EYTAN HADDAD, JULIAN COHEN, ERAN USHA and Rabbi YOSEF KONIKOV. den recital of the Torah.
