Introduction to Prayer Book Hebrew
Start your journey toward understanding Hebrew.
Meeting online via Zoom
Goal of the Course: If you want to participate fluently in Jewish services and follow along in the prayer book with understanding, this class is for you. Over the course of the two semesters, you will have constant "Aha!" moments as the words on the page and in your ears begin to have meaning.
Before you begin: Learn the Hebrew alphabet and the basics of reading with vowels. You don't have to read fluently, just know the letters and vowels. If you need help with that, please register for How to Read Hebrew, offered each year, beginning in June.
Instructor: Laura Lee Blechner has taught Hebrew at Mekom Torah for close to 10 years. She is a talented, patient, and kind educator with a devoted following of inspired students.
How this is like a college course: There will be homework. Consistent attendance is expected. Commitment is paramount!
How this is different from a college course: It’s fun and welcoming, with no grades, just encouragement and pay-off for hard work.
Textbook: Aleph Isn't Enough, by Linda Motzkin
Tuition: The tuition for this class is flexible, like all Mekom Torah classes. You may simply tell us what works in your budget. Really. No questions asked. For those who can afford it, we ask $180 per semester for each 12 week semester.
Pay online, or by mail: Tuition Payments.
