Old Hebrew Prayer Book

Adult Hebrew Course

Do you want to learn to read Hebrew? Would you like to be able to sound out the words in the prayer book?

 

This program has been designed to ease your way into Hebrew by rooting your work in words you may already know from the context of Jewish life.

 

Debi Rowe leads a weekly session from L’Shon Ha-Kodesh – A Beginning Hebrew Book for Adults to guide anyone who wants to learn Hebrew. The textbook includes an Introduction and ten individual lessons.

 

May our journey be rich and rewarding! 

 

This course will be held in-person only, keep an eye out for when registration is open.
