Scholar Classes

Madeleine Haas Russell Institute of Jewish Learning

Emanu-El Scholar Courses

Holy Letters, Holy Language: An Introduction to Hebrew for people who literally dont know the difference between an alef and a bet. Taught by Rabbi Lawrence Kushner

Tuesdays, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
July 12, 26; August 9, 23
Room 53, 5th Floor

No prior knowledge of anything whatsoever will be assumed!

This informal summer seminar will be for students to learn all twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet in order (there’s actually a song for it!) and the sounds for all those little dots that are the vowels.

We will also discuss some of the legends behind the letters, why they are more than merely signs for sounds, their mystical creative power, their religious significance, gematria (letters as numbers), and, of course, how to put them together into syllables to (slowly) make words and begin building a very basic Hebrew vocabulary.

(Our text is for self-learning, so if you have to miss a session, we can help you stay with the program.)

Texts: Reading Primer Teach Yourself to Read Hebrew, (revised ed.), Simon & Anderson, EKS Publishers, Albany, CA, 2002

Recommended Background Reading: The Book of Letters: A Mystical Hebrew Alef-Bait: Sefer Otiyot, Lawrence Kushner, Jewish Lights, 1975.

In the Beginning: A Short History of the Hebrew Language, Joel M. Hoffman, New York University Press, 2004.

How the Hebrew Language Grew, Edward Horowitz, Ktav, 1960.
