600 I Street Northwest
Washington, DC, 20001
$200.00 - $220.00
This class meets from 7:00 – 8:45 pm on Tuesdays, June 11 – August 27 (no class on July 2).
In this introductory-level class, demystify the Hebrew alphabet as you learn the letters, vowels, and some words commonly found in Jewish life. Using the prayer book as context, this course introduces Hebrew literacy through focused study and participatory activities, games, and songs. Intended for those with little to no prior Hebrew reading ability. Students should plan to attend class regularly and spend 15-20 minutes daily on homework.
The class fee covers a materials kit including flashcards, handwriting guide, course packet, and online component, but students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks online (Aleph Isn’t Tough by Linda Motzkin, approx. $23).
