As Hebrew school teachers we strive to make our curriculum come alive. One of the best ways to do that is through games. Here are a few Hebrew school games to play with your students. I recommend using them as review games to use at the end of each class. Hopefully these games will make your students excited to attend Hebrew school and help them pay attention in class.

Here are a few things to note:
  • This blog gives instructions to how to play the games but leaves you the teacher with the responsibility to come up with appropriate questions and tasks for each game. This allows you to match any of these review games with any of your subjects.
  • In the past I have allowed students to take notes throughout the class in a "Machbaret" notebook and I have allowed them to use whatever they have written down as part of the game.
  • Small Prizes for the winning team helps encourage kids to participate in the games. However, most students are inspired by the feeling of competition.
  • Warning: Some of the more risky sounding games may need fine tuning.
Please feel free to e-mail me your games and feedback on these games at
