"Alef-Bet: Beginning Hebrew for Adults" focus of interfaith adult education classes in February
“Alef-Bet: Beginning Hebrew for Adults'' will be presented by Temple Beth Shalom of the West Valley member Mariane Anderson from 10-11 a.m. Mondays, Feb. 5, 12, 19 and 26 at the Temple, 12202 N. 101st Ave. in Sun City.
Learn how to read letters and vowels in Hebrew, and how sounds are put together in words.This is a basic course for those who would like to read prayer books in Hebrew. It will require some practice at home and perseverance after the course ends. The familiarity with Hebrew that you will acquire will make you feel more connected to the Friday night prayer service and Judaism as a whole.
Anderson, who is a Temple Beth Shalom religious school teacher, was motivated to learn siddur Hebrew herself so she could teach beginning Hebrew to her daughter and other fourth graders so they would be prepared to become B’nai Mitzvah.
Cost is $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Call the Temple office to register and pay for the course from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Registration deadline is noon Feb. 1.
