Hebrew and About Hebrew: Adult Class (starts again this fall 2019)

Instructor: Rona Frank 

Rona was born and raised in Israel, she is well-educated in Jewish history, and an experienced teacher.

This course teaches reading, writing, basic grammar and vocabulary. We work on basic conversational skills from the very beginning.The course teaches the language while viewing it in its historical context and the extraordinary history of the Jewish people. Hebrew survived though sacred manuscripts passed from generation to generation and has become the official language of the state of Israel. Today it is a hybrid of new and ancient. It is rooted in history, yet it is constantly changing, mirroring the vibrant Israeli society and evolving Jewish culture worldwide. Please join us on this fun, intriguing and informative journey.

This class is scheduled for Sunday mornings for the convenience of religious school parents. This class will be a continuation of last year’s beginners group.
