Adult Hebrew Class

Always wanted to read Hebrew? Cantor Friedman will take you through the alphabet so that reading prayers and Torah are no longer daunting. The class will be catered to beginners, but any level may join us to brush up on competency. Weekly meetings are important as it will be difficult to catch up if too many weeks are missed.

The book that will be used in class is Shalom Uvrachah the New Hebrew Primer by Pearl G Tarnor, ISBN-10: 087441654X. It is not required for students to purchase the book, but it will help with the learning process.
