The purpose of this class is to help people become more comfortable in services and at times of prayer, and to encourage participation without judgment. It acknowledges that many adults, for different reasons, feel excluded because they cannot read Hebrew well enough to chant or sing prayers in the sanctuary or at home—unless they have learned them by rote. Many adults believe that it is too late or too difficult to learn to read Hebrew. That is not so. In this class you will gain confidence in speaking Hebrew words aloud, and although comprehension is not specifically a goal, you will acquire a greater understanding of what you are saying. It is an opportunity for those with limited or no childhood Jewish education to study prayer book Hebrew with a structure, development and motivational approach specifically developed for the mature learner by a rabbi who devoted his life’s work to adult education.
