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.

AITZ CHAIM COMMUNITY SUKKOT GATHERING SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10

The Aitz Chaim community will hold a Sukkot gathering on Saturday, October 10, 2020, at Gibson Park, east of the flower garden at Third Street North, at 1:00 P.M.  Come an hour earlier to help us build a Succah. We will gather observing all of the health and safety guidelines concerning the coronavirus: washing hands, using hand sanitizer, social distancing, wearing masks. Instead of an esrog, we will use a lemon. Instead of a lulav, we will use wheat stalks.

Aaron Weissman will bring a camp stove to heat apple cider. There may be individually wrapped food items there. It has been awhile since we have seen each other in person. We want to have a small celebration to commemorate the ingathering of the Jews under God’s protective shelter, and the ingathering of the fall harvest to sustain us through the winter and whatever other hardships the next year may bring.

Please join us in celebrating our connection to God and His protection and provision for us, our connection to the beauty and the bounty of the Earth which He has created for our sustenance and enjoyment, and the strong and loving connections we have with one another.
