Alef Bet & Beyond

Join Rabbi SAM for this 5 week course and come learn to decode the alef-bet! In this five week course, we will learn the letters through games, lore, and chevruta (study buddy) practice, using visual and aural mnemonics.

Whether this is your first encounter with these 22 holy gateways or eighteenth, we will build a foundation for reading sacred Hebrew texts such as Torah, Talmud, and liturgy. This class will prepare you to join a 700 Benches talmud class or other workshops that involve learning Hebrew or Aramaic texts in their original languages.
