Hebrew Class for Advanced Beginners

A class in Hebrew for advanced beginners will start this month, taught by Hazzan Steve. We will study Biblical and prayerbook Hebrew (rather than modern conversational Hebrew). This class is for those who already have learned the Hebrew aleph-bet (the consonants) and vowel signs (nikkudot), and can sound out words. We will take those skills to the next level, learning a vocabulary of common words of Torah and the siddur, and the shoreshim (roots) on which the words are based, and acquiring a beginning understanding of phrases and sentence structure. The class schedule will be agreed upon by the participants and Hazzan Steve. We hope to find a day and time when we can meet together in three dimensions. Zoom participation also may be an option. There will be a textbook to purchase, and also a class fee for participants who are not CBI members. If you are interested in the class and have not spoken with Hazzan Steve about this already, please contact Hazzan Steve in the next week.
