Aleph Champ  Hebrew Reading Curriculum

Based on the martial arts motivational philosophy of color coded levels and testing, the Aleph Champion Program provides motivation for Chabad Hebrew School students around the world. 

The Hebrew alphabet as well as the vowels and word formations are divided into 10 colored levels. The students start out as ‘White Aleph Champs,’ working their way up the colors of the rainbow to be a ‘Black Aleph’ like their teachers.
