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. This course provides a strong grammatical basis for Biblical Hebrew and some of the vocabulary for modern Israeli Hebrew. It is a continuation of Fall 2018 Hebrew 1A. Students who took the latter course may register for this course at reduced tuition.

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 Zoom online conference services. Students may attend live in the classroom, live online or anytime via recording.
