Adult Hebrew Classes

We are "rebooting" our adult Hebrew program this summer and fall!

If you are a potential student, Rabbi Faro really needs your input on this. We want to do, at a minimum, three regular classes:

1. A beginner-level class, focusing on reading pointed Hebrew (with vowels) more accurately and quickly. This is open to all; no Hebrew school background required.

2. An intermediate-level class with a focus on grammar and vocabulary. Texts will mostly be Biblical and Rabbinic Hebrew.

3. An advanced class focusing mainly on Modern Hebrew as it is spoken in Israel, with some short unpointed texts (no vowels) from newspapers and books to read for discussion.

And in addition to these, Rabbi Ferro would also like us to offer some "clinics" on leading services as a SheliaŠł• Tzibbur, learning new liturgical melodies, learning to chant Torah, and learning to chant Haftarah.

Once we have figured out who would be in what cohort we can start planning what we want to do at various times throughout the week: a weekday afternoon, a weekday evening, a Sunday morning, a Sunday afternoon, or a Sunday evening.
