Hebrew 1, This course is designed for beginning students and will focus on learning to read basic Hebrew. We will explore the entire alphabet in print and script, and focus on learning skills to read more fluently for Shabbat Services. This is open to beginners and students who want to improve their reading skills by reviewing the alphabet.
Hebrew 2, This class will build on the reading skills developed in Hebrew 1. The course will focus on the Hebrew that is used most frequently, that of the siddur, the Haggadah, and the Tanach. While continuing to work toward reading proficiency, this course also focuses on translations skills and the learning of key vocabulary and roots. Basic reading skills is the requirement for this class.
