Hebrew for Adults

Whether you want to learn to speak Hebrew or be able to read the prayers (without transliteration!), we are here to help.


Conversational Hebrew

Learning to speak a new language as an adult can be daunting. We offer an innovative method that emphasizes conversation over decoding, and you’ll find yourself speaking Hebrew at the very first class. You don’t need to read Hebrew, or even know the aleph-bet.

For Winter 2021, Conversational Hebrew classes will meet on Zoom at the following times:

  • Mondays, starting January 25, 10:00 am (Beginner/Intermediate)
  • Mondays, starting January 25, 11:30 am (Advanced)
  • Tuesdays, starting January 19, 10:00 am (Beginner)
  • Wednesday, starting January 20, 5:45 pm (Intermediate)
  • Thursdays, starting January 21, 10:00 am (Advanced)

“Gerdy Trachtman provides the ideal opportunity to become conversant in Hebrew in a matter of months. She fast-tracks our learning by providing phonetic transliterations of all vocabulary that we learn, so that we can focus our time on speaking the language rather than wrestling with an unfamiliar alphabet…I can’t wait to take the class again!”

Hebrew Reading

If you would like to be able to read our prayers in Hebrew instead of relying on the transliteration or keep up with what your kids (or grandkids) are learning in Religious School, this course is for you.
