Beginning Prayerbook/Biblical Hebrew 1A-B
This class introduces students to all the basic elements of Prayerbook Hebrew: the alphabet, vowels, vocabulary, sight-reading skills, and basic grammar. You'll learn some of the key prayerbook melodies and discuss the meaning of the prayers. In-class instruction will include group practice with CD-ROM software (projected on a screen) that speeds the learning process. This course also provides a strong grammatical basis and some of the vocabulary for modern Israeli Hebrew. This course is also the continuation of Fall 2015 Hebrew 1A.
Required text: Prayerbook Hebrew the Easy Way, available at Afikomen Judaica. Afikomen is a community partner and plays a substantial role in contributing to the vibrant, diverse and engaged Bay Area Jewish community. We encourage you to purchase your course materials from them.
This course will be available to registered students at no extra charge via Adobe Connect online distance learning. Students may attend live in the classroom, live online or anytime via recording.
