Turn your wish into reality with our lay-led Hebrew classes. Whether you’re a beginner or just need some brushing up, we have the class that’s right for you. Or come to both classes for extra reinforcement.

Level 1: We use URJ Press’ Aleph isn’t Tough to improve reading skills, and to teach word roots and their meaning. A basic knowledge of the Hebrew alphabet is recommended. If you need a refresher, a great do-it-yourself primer is A Taste of Hebrew, also published by URJ Press. Instructor TBA.

Level 2: Book 2 in the series, Aleph isn’t Enough, is used to continue to build vocabulary using familiar passages from the siddur, the Haggadah and the Tanach.
This class is led by Eric Castaneda, an Adat Chaverim congregant and high school French teacher in the Richardson ISD. Eric is a polyglot whose languages include French, German, Spanish and Hebrew.

Classes begin in October. Dates and times TBA.
