Learn to Read Hebrew

We offer a Hebrew course for adults, using the same Hebrew Through Prayer curriculum used by our younger students.  While the kids cover the material in four years, adults go through it in two years.  By the end, you will be able to not only read Hebrew, but you will know the meaning behind many of the prayers said during services, as well as basic vocabulary. 

The adult class takes place on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. typically between September and May. Tuition is $50 for members and $75 for non-members per semester.  

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Edie Evans at gatoredie@yahoo.com


Weekly Torah Study

Join the congregation in the weekly Torah Study on Saturday mornings! During this time, the congregation noshes on small treats and does an in-depth investigation of the Hebrew Bible.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  There is no charge for this study group.

Check the calendar weekly for updates.
