"The Hebrew language will go from the synagogue to the house of study, and from the house of study to the school, and from the school it will come into the home and... become a living language."

- Eliezar Ben-Yehuda

Course Description: 

Through interactive learning, participants will significantly improve their language skills in order to read, understand, speak and discuss simple texts related to daily life. This course is suitable for students with very little Hebrew knowledge. (Reading with ‘nekudot” and the use of a minimal vocabulary). Hebrew is the key to connect with the vibrant modern life in Israel – the young “start-up nation”- as well as with our rich cultural past, prayers and traditions. Come, join us! L’hitraot!

New students will be connected with the instructor for an evaluation through a one-on-one telephone conversation to make sure the level is a good fit for a meaningful experience.. Please email: to set up your meeting with the instructor.
