Introduction to Reading Liturgical Hebrew

Rabbi Steve Steinberg will be offering a course in reading the Hebrew of the siddur on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30. The course assumes no prior knowledge of the Hebrew alphabet, but is also intended for those who want to improve their basic liturgical skills. The foremost goal of the class is to be able to follow and join in the Hebrew of the erev shabbat service. The class will also look at the structure and history of basic Jewish liturgy and other aspects of Judaism that grow out of the study of Hebrew. The course usually ends with a study of the Passover Haggadah in the late Spring. If you are interested in this course, please leave your name at the CMI office. It is hoped to start the class October 20.
