INTRODUCTION TO HEBREW PRAYER, SONG AND MORE
Monday, May 20
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Meeting twice per month on the first and third Monday evenings
This BRAND NEW COURSE will utilize and build on the NJOP’s READ HEBREW AMERICA program and go way beyond! We will learn how to recite some of the holiday prayers, their meaning and historical value, augmented by song and conversational Hebrew to make this a REALLY FUN and INTERESTING educational experience for ALL involved!
This will be an advanced beginner (or early intermediate) course in the process of learning the Hebrew language. An ability to identify the Hebrew Aleph-bet and read basic Hebrew will be helpful. There will be approximately 6 to 8 classes starting April 1, 2019 (meeting on the first and third Monday evenings) and two more classes prior to the High Holy Days.
This class will focus on learning Hebrew prayers, songs and conversational Hebrew phrases. We will be improving prayer book reading skills for those commonly used in Shabbat celebrations. We will also learn what the prayers mean and their significance. Prior to the High Holy Days, we will review prayers specific to these holidays. We will have a singing component, led by our “Songsters” volunteer choir. We will also incorporate conversational Hebrew phrases and a feel for modern Israeli Hebrew and signage (useful for travels to the state of Israel).
This program will be open and complimentary to the Community and Congregation. Donations are welcome
