1/2 Hour Hebrew with Rabbi Baseman is an informal, relaxed class for beginners that helps us to understand the language of the scriptures Jesus knew.
It's fun to learn a new alphabet! It keeps the mind sharp and helps us put aside the worries of the day and, besides, you will be able to leave notes around your house to keep your loved ones guessing about what you're up to. Also, just think: if you can learn to read Hebrew, what ELSE might you be able to learn — like, maybe calculus!
THEN, enjoy about 45 minutes of Torah study, learning more about the scriptures Jesus knew. Discussion helps to bring light to ancient Bible mysteries. Take, for instance, the Book of Job, where you're likely to see yourself and discover that your story is not so new, after all. Trust me, we have deep, fascinating discussions and we learn a lot, and we relate to timeless human struggles and we laugh hard, too, just like in first grade.
A fair offering for the combined class is $12 per person or $20 per couple, but no one is turned away on account of funds.
