Modern Hebrew 101 for Adults | New schedule
10:00 am Mondays (June 21, 28, July 12) | From the comfort of your living room join Tziona Zalkow, Or Hadash member and master Hebrew teacher, to bring Hebrew to life! If you are familiar with Hebrew from synagogue but have never really ventured into conversational Hebrew, this is the class for you. We will learn practical vocabulary, explore the basics of grammar, and practice speaking and hearing this beautiful living language. This series is free!
Questions? Email Tziona (tbzalkow@gmail.com) or Dr. Amy (amy@or-hadash.org).
 

One Prayer Deep Dive: A Siddur Book Club
8:00 am Tuesday, June 22 (follows Minyan)
If you’ve ever sat in services and wished that you could better understand just one prayer at a time before moving onto the next one, this class is for you! Led by Rabbi Lauren, we’ll gather on Zoom to journey prayer-by-prayer through the morning service, looking at just one prayer a week (and occasionally, over multiple weeks). No Hebrew knowledge or prayer expertise required... just bring your questions, curiosity, and a siddur/prayerbook if you have one (we’ll also be sharing text on screen for those who don’t have a siddur at home).
