Whether you were born Jewish and never learned Hebrew (perhaps despite hours warming the chair at Hebrew School…) or you chose Judaism as an adult, tackling a new language IN A NEW ALPHABET is daunting. Yet mastery of even the alef-bet and some words of Hebrew is tremendously empowering and, the way our teachers teach, great fun! Over the years Lehrhaus had offered numerous Hebrew and Yiddish classes. Many of the teachers are lifers, and will be teaching for New Lehrhaus until someone pries the chalk from their hand!
Jehon Grist, who has spent hundreds of Sundays shifting from one level of Hebrew to the next as the hours tick by, will be doing it again starting Sunday, October 10, and Orna Morad, a native Hebrew speaker, who has taught hundreds of students, is teaching through Congregation Beth Am. Ken Blady, will launch you into Yiddish, his mameloshen (see how we slipped a little Yiddish in there), starting October 17.
Whatever your Hebrew level and goal, we can help. See the full list of classes here. (all fall classes are on zoom)
