Hebrew for Beginners!
And also a refresher for those who have some background
Beginning Hebrew, a 10-week course
Wednesday Oct 21 to Dec 23, 6 to 7 pm, on Zoom
For complete beginners and those who are refreshing their knowledge
This class is an invitation to those who would like to learn to recognize and pronounce Hebrew letters and vowel markings. These skills are the foundation of prayer book and Biblical Hebrew fluency.
We are offering this beginner’s course both as a stand-alone and as preparatory to a Biblical Hebrew class that we will offer in January 2021; it will be useful either way to anyone with a desire to learn.
We will meet on zoom every Wednesday evening, 6 to 7 pm, from mid-October to mid-December, for one hour. Each week will feature several letters and vowel markings. The last two lessons focus on special grammar and considerations. Every lesson contains exercises that we will begin in class and you will complete at home. If you miss a week, you can use the book and accompanying audio recordings to learn the material on your own. Please purchase your own materials, both book and audio download (links below).
Cost: First class free.
If you decide to continue: Har Shalom members $50 for the 10-week series.
Non-members: $150. By check or Paypal, http://www.har-shalom.org/make-a-donation/
