Hebrew Institute of Riverdale
is a proud member of the
JYEP / HEBREW SCHOOL
Big Sibling Program
Experiencing One on One Learning
Every child beginning in the fourth or fifth grade is paired with a 'big sister' or 'big brother.' These are people in the community who give of their time and love to meet and learn with the JYEP students. It is here where Hebrew language and Bar or Bat Mitzvah instruction takes place. Throughout the year, these 'siblings' form a close bond that often lasts for many years. Our Big Sibling Program meets weekly on
Sunday mornings from 9:30am-10:30am.
It is required for students in grades 4-7.
