Hebrew – Ivrit – is more than just the printed language of our sacred Jewish texts. It's not just for shul anymore, and it's not just for Jews either!

Understanding modern Hebrew can really improve your Torah study skills.  Another great reason to study spoken Hebrew is travel to Israel. One Conversational Hebrew student said,  

“Familiarity with the spoken language gives me a feeling of authenticity.”

“When I went to Jerusalem, I felt great ordering my own meals in restaurants, falafel stands, and the shuk (open-air marketplace).  I went to the supermarket, the pharmacy, and asked for what I needed.  I negotiated with taxi drivers and gave directions, and arrived at my destination at a fair price.  I took the bus, paid, and got off at the right bus stop.  I didn’t feel like I was just a tourist anymore."

We will be using the book Hebrew in 10 Minutes a Day, by Kristine Kershul, for our common knowledge base. When purchased new, the book includes Flash Cards, Sticky Labels, Menu Guide, and helpful digital download software. The book is also available for under five dollars on eBay. We’ll make use of Zoom “breakout rooms” for conversational practice with each other.  In addition to assignments from the book, homework may include watching Disney movies in Hebrew, like “Finding Nemo,” “Frozen.”  Take advantage of free on-line lessons on YouTube as well.

L’hitra’ot – see you soon!

Event Fee:  No cost for members or friends of B'nai Havurah. Participants are responsible for purchasing their own book.
