Imagine a Hebrew School where kids don't want to miss a day. They come in with a smile and leave humming a Hebrew song. Walking through the halls, you can hear the sounds of lively discussion, of singing, laughter and prayer.

Welcome to Chabad of the Central Cascades Hebrew School, an exciting and innovative educational program in Issaquah. Our school enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trend setter in creative Jewish education for children in Kindergarten through Grade 6, and for making every Jewish child feel welcome, regardless of knowledge or affiliation. Chabad Hebrew School is where Judaism comes alive and children are encouraged to ask and explore. Our experienced staff, hands-on curriculum, and holiday workshops are sure to make this year both educational and enjoyable for our students.

Our curriculum is designed to instill our students with a basic yet thorough understanding of our traditions and values, a strong sense of Jewish pride and a love of Jewish life. Our exclusive ALEPH-CHAMP reading program has been uniquely successful in motivating the students toward Hebrew fluency. We firmly believe that the holistic approach we employ is the most effective way to educate children and ensure an enduring connection with our Heritage.

We look forward to working together with you to educate and inspire your children.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me any time at 425-985-8996 or email nsfarkash@gmail.com.

The Hebrew School was founded in 2004 by a Grant from Seth and Sandy Basker in Loving Memory of their parents Yitzchok Reuven and Evelyn Basker OBM
