Monday Night Adult Education Classes

(October 12, 2020 to April 26, 2021)


6:00-7:00 pm
Advanced Hebrew with Rabbi Rapport
Make the words of Torah your own. Learn to read and translate the Bible for yourself in a small circle of friends of varying ages, abilities, and background in Hebrew prayer and Bible. If you can read the words, we can open the door to Torah together. Our class progresses through a steadily growing vocabulary of the most common Hebrew words, so each story we read makes the next one easier to understand. Join us on the journey, make the words of Torah come alive.
