Brush up on your Hebrew in Zoom classes


Do you like to speak Hebrew? Do you have relatives in Israel? Are you planning to visit Israel once the pandemic subsides? Or are you simply interested in improving your Hebrew skills? 

This fall, Temple Emanu-El and the Alliance’s Dwares Jewish Community Center, both in Providence, will for a second year offer four levels of Hebrew-conversation courses. Classes will be conducted via Zoom on Monday evenings, 7 to 8:15, from Oct. 18 through Dec. 14, excepting Nov. 15.  The cost is $100 for the eight sessions, and some scholarships are available. Links to the Zoom will be forwarded after registration.

Teachers for the sessions include Janice Kaidan Rosenfield, who teaches at the Providence Hebrew Day School; Toby Liebowitz, who has taught in the public school system as well as teaching Hebrew to children and adults for many years; Oz Zohar Kubal, who has taught in Israeli schools; and Amit Moshe Oren, the new shaliach/Israeli emissary to Rhode Island.

Hebrew is interconnected with Jewish heritage and Jewish community, linking Jews around the world to a shared culture and to generations before and to come.
