Monday Night Adult Education Classes

(October 28, 2019 to April 27, 2020)


6:00-7:00 pm
Advanced Hebrew
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.

Text Study with Rabbi David: Praying from My Heart vs. Praying from the Prayer Book
How do we pray? Why do we pray? The tension between words we pray and direction of our hearts. Do we need to mean what we pray? What should be disposition of your heart when you pray? Is praying a mental and spiritual human activity? We will study rabbinical and modern texts trying to capture the amazing phenomenon of Jewish prayer!

In this class, we will learn to read from the prayer book and learn the meanings of the words in the prayer book. Students should have knowledge of the Alef Bet. Please email [email protected] for registration.
