Level A1 – Hebrew: Beginning Prayerbook/Biblical (Winter 2021)

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. It provides a strong grammatical basis for Biblical Hebrew and some of the vocabulary for modern Israeli Hebrew.

Required text: Prayerbook Hebrew the Easy Way is available for sale at Afikomen Judaica in Berkeley and other outlets.

Please purchase the book before the first class session.
