  • This event has passed.

This class meets Tuesdays, June 20 – August 29 at 7:30 pm. Each session is 90 minutes long. *No class on Tuesday, July 4.

Demystify the Hebrew alphabet as you learn the letters and vowels and how to combine them to “crack the code.” This course introduces reading Hebrew in an enjoyable yet focused atmosphere. Emphasis is placed on reading from the prayer book and words from Jewish cultural life. This course, taught by certified language instructor Keren Yairi, is for those with little to no prior Hebrew reading ability.

Due to the cumulative nature of literacy learning, students should plan to attend class regularly and spend 20 minutes daily on home practice.

Keren Yairi is a certified language instructor; in addition to Hebrew, she teaches English as a Second/Other Language, literacy, and language arts in the DC schools.  She is also an international development consultant for education and literacy projects.
