Please join members of the Am Yisrael community as we learn to read Hebrew. We will meet weekly for this fun, easy, stress-free class. This class is geared to both those who never learned to read Hebrew, and those who would like to brush up on their skills from the beginning. Classes meet on Sundays (hybrid – in person and zoom simultaneously) and again on Tuesdays (zoom only, same material as Sunday).
These classes are offered free of charge for members of Am Yisrael Congregation. The Beginning Hebrew class is also open to non-member family and friends of Am Yisrael members. All materials will be provided (Hebrew students will be required to print out a 68-page pdf document as our textbook).
