Classes are taught in the Kripke Jewish Federation Library by Mor Sheinbein, the official Hebrew Instructor for the Center for Jewish Life.

Classes offered include Hebrew 101 for Beginners and Hebrew 103 for Conversational.

Mor has been teaching Hebrew to students who have had some or no previous instruction in the language and to those who are looking to “brush up” and improve. Thanks to Mor’s energetic, upbeat and systematic teaching style, students report that they have achieved a knowledge of Hebrew that has either met or exceeded their expectations.

“It’s not easy, but it’s possible! I think Mor presents the material in the best way possible,” said one student.

Mor is once again devoting her time and energy to instruct those who wish to increase their facility with Hebrew through the two classes listed below:

Hebrew 101 – Beginners

Eight sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 5:30-6:45 p.m., beginning on May 13.

This class is designed for those who have very little or no familiarity with Hebrew. Recognizing words, learning how to pronounce them, learning how the language works and taking the first steps in verbal communications are all part of this course.

Hebrew 103 – Conversational

Six sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 7-8:15 p.m., beginning on May 13.

This class is especially designed for the traveler or someone who wishes to be able to reach the first level of Hebrew conversation skills. Using the immersion techniques that Mor has found to be so successful with elementary students, she bases this class on those same principles and techniques. Challenging and fun!
