Basic Judaism Class

This class teaches the fundamentals of Judaism and is good for those who want a refresher about Jewish basics. It is also required for those considering conversion.


All adult Hebrew classes are taught by Frayna Scrinopskie in the Norma Jean Leff Board Room on Sunday mornings during the school year.  The fee is $50 (plus the cost of any textbook) for the year of classes.   

9:30 – 10:30 am Beginning Hebrew students will first learn the alphabet and vowels and will progress to basic Hebrew prayers.  This class will start with an introduction to the language of Biblical Hebrew.  

10:30 – 11:30 am Intermediate Hebrew students will learn to read, with some fluency, and to understand the Hebrew prayers that comprise Shabbat and holiday services.  Some biblical texts may be read.  This class will only meet twice a month.
11:30 am – 12:30 pm Advanced Adult Hebrew  
This class is a continuation of the Advanced Hebrew class offered last year.  Students in this class should have a basic understanding of Hebrew grammar and vocabulary.  Biblical texts will be read.
