צוות בגד כפת הוכשר, לימד והתמקצע בלמידה אונליין. בשנת לימודים הנוכחית (2020-21) בגד כפת לימד במתכונת אונליין, מתכונת משולבת ופנים מול פנים. אופן ההכשרות והלמידה כללו עבודה פדגוגית עם טובי המומחים על תוכנית לימוד לכל שכבת גיל וכלי הוראה דיגיטליים. זאת לצד שילוב מרכיבים של מפגשים חברתיים ככל האפשר, חגיגת החגים והקשר עם ישראל.

בגד כפת מאמין ורואה חשיבות רבה בלימודים פנים מול פנים. הלימודים בשנה הנוכחית בבית הספר הועברו ברובם באופן פרונטלי בקמפוסים. אנו נעשה את מירב מאמצינו להמשיך בשנת הלימודים הבאה בלמידה פנים מול פנים בהתאם להנחיות המחוז.

BK student with shofarWelcome to Beged Kefet Hebrew School

Beged Kefet is a Hebrew language afterschool program for students in preschool through high school. It opened in September 2008 in response to the local community’s need and has been located at the OFJCC since September 2009. Beged Kefet is a community school that operates with the local community and encourages parent participation and feedback. We offer multiple-level high school classes.

Beged Kefet’s purpose is to teach the fundamentals and improve the knowledge of Hebrew throughout the four language skills—reading, writing, speaking and comprehension. In addition to teaching the language, we emphasize and incorporate learning about Jewish holidays and Israeli culture in our curriculum, as well as integrating family activities in the different grade levels. High school students who take these classes are eligible for credit towards the high school foreign language requirement. For more information check Beged Kefet’s website.

Beged Kefet’s staff have put a lot of thought and effort into planning an online curriculum that focuses on keeping students engaged in learning. Our team has been training in specialized online teaching tools. During the 2020–2021 school year, our teachers taught online, in-person and in hybrid format. In our training, we have been working with specialists, participating in webinars and adopting a new digital teaching methodology. In addition, we are planning to integrate programs to build connections with Israel as well as holiday celebration, within the Covid-19 guidelines.

Beged Kefet understands and believes in the importance of in-person learning. The 2020–2021 school year in Beged Kefet was completed in person on campus. We will do our absolute best to continue in-person learning, in accordance to county guidelines, for the 2021–2022 school year.
