Learn to Read Hebrew
Starting September 29 through December 15, 2014
Weekly class on Mondays 7:30 – 9:00 PM
Teacher: Ms. Joy Fallek
Do you wish you could learn to read Hebrew so that you can read from the Prayer Book along with the congregation, and perhaps progress to learning the Hebrew language? This is a class for people with no background in reading Hebrew. We will use two books that offer a programmed learning approach that has been very effective in helping adults gain Jewish literacy.
Please let us know in advance if you plan to attend by emailing Joy Fallek. For more information you can also contact the Kane Street Synagogue office at KSS Office.
