Hebrew 101 (for beginners) with Yaffa Tygiel
Tuesday evenings on zoom: 6:30 – 8:00 pm
In this class students will study to speak basic modern Hebrew by communicating with each other, reading texts, poems & songs and writing short paragraphs in Hebrew. We will be using the book “Hebrew from Scratch”.
The course also offers a first introduction to Jewish and Israeli culture as well as the Jewish traditions, using music, food and art.
Ms. Yaffa Tygiel, a very experienced native speaking teacher, will be teaching this class in Hebrew.
Contemporary Jewish Ethics: Examining Our World’s Issues from a Jewish Perspective
Come and explore all of the latest headline topics, such as going to war, reproductive rights, addiction, and even perjury, under a Jew lens. What do our sages have to say? What does Reform Responsa say? How do we navigate these challenging times while keeping our faith and tradition?
This course will be taught by Rabbi Jonathan Singer with special guests along the way.
Join Emanu-El clergy to learn about the breadth and wonder of Jewish tradition. This class is a pathway for the adult learner who wishes to discover or deepen Jewish knowledge, non-Jews who are marrying a Jewish partner, and those who are considering conversion to Judaism. Participants register for each trimester separately.
