Get started with aleph-bet! New for 2021, the URJ is excited to introduce Learn to Read Hebrew for Adults, a 10-session online course to teach participants to learn the shapes and sounds of the Hebrew alphabet, with a warm and supportive educator to guide you and a group of classmates for practicing together.
With a commitment to class attendance and review between class sessions, you can expect to recognize and understand the common Hebrew words and phrases that are often heard in Reform congregations and in Jewish prayer. Familiarity with Hebrew can be a key to feeling at home in the Jewish community.
Perfect for Introduction to Judaism alumni and other adults, this course assumes no prior Hebrew experience. This course has been developed specifically for online learning and is taught by experienced educators.
Live sessions meet weekly over video conferencing. Participants are given access to online course materials and a link to purchase workbook.
