Hebrew Lessons

Introduction to Hebrew Class on Zoom, One Hour Evening Class (12) Sessions

Dates: Tuesdays, October 5 – December 21   on Zoom

Time: 7:00 – 8:00 pm

Would you like to be able to decode Hebrew, so that you can follow along in the prayer book? Have you always wondered how the Hebrew language works? It is never too late to start!

This class is intended for first time Hebrew students, and will begin at the very beginning by learning the letters and the sounds that they make. This class provides a friendly and supportive learning environment, and patience and sensitivity will be shown to adult learners with limited time for study. You’ll be reading Hebrew words in no time!

Fee: There is a $54 fee for members and $126 fee for non-members. However no one is turned away for lack of funds. Please email Susie at [email protected] to inquire about scholarships. The fee does not include the text book we will use.

This class requires a minimum of 8 students. If the class doesn’t happen, we’ll refund your registration. Class is taught by Michael Lederman.
