Instructor Anne Hartheimer leads free Hebrew classes in the month of January. This is a continuation of our popular Hebrew Crash Course beginner's level class. We'll be continuing to work on reading and grammar that helps you understand the prayerbook and eventually to be able to read from Torah and Tanach (the Bible).
