Exploring Jewish Living

Exploring Jewish Living(with Beth Huppin) A basic introduction to Judaism, including holidays, texts, and home traditions and a Hebrew class (below).  This is our required course for conversion students. 

Hebrew Classes

Hebrew 1: This course is a first introduction to the Hebrew language that lays the foundation for future Hebrew learning by combining the skills of sight-reading with the building blocks to recognize how Hebrew works as a language and as part of our lives. Come prepared to sing, play, pray, and ask questions. 

Beyond the Aleph Bet: Do you know the Hebrew aleph bet and want to deepen your understanding of Hebrew as you engage with prayers or Jewish texts? In this 12-week class you’ll have the opportunity to practice reading, grow your vocabulary, and gain familiarity with Hebrew grammar. 

Prayerbook Hebrew & You: This class will increase your familiarity with the Siddur (prayerbook), building vocabulary, grammar, and understanding of the structure and meaning of prayers based on learning Hebrew roots. We will use the Siddur itself as our main textbook, with student interest informing the prayers we study.

Yiddish Torah Study (in English):  Harvey Niebulski, Marianne Tatom and others will facilitate over Zoom a discussion of the weekly (triennial) Parsha based upon the once famous comprehensive masterpiece but now nearly forgotten Yiddish translation of the Tanakh by Yehoash (the pen name of Solomon Blumgarten, 1872-1927). All are welcome, regardless of language skills! For a review of this magnum opus translation by Yehoash versus Robert Alter’s recent acclaimed English translation, visit here. Check out this video of virtual group saying the blessing for studying Torah, in Hebrew and Yiddish. With questions or to join, contact Marianne Tatom.
