Learn Hebrew

B'nai Chaim offers several adult Hebrew classes:

Beginner and One Level Up from Aleph Bet -- Taught by Sandy at the Temple on Sundays from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM and/or Wednesday. The books used are the "Aleph Isn't Tough" series (1-5) by Linda Motzkin. It is available on Amazon. The class usually follows the Religious School schedule, but different arrangements are occasionally made, so please stay in touch with Sandy.

Please note: A $36 contribution to Religious School is requested as tuition, and students need to buy their own books.

Haven't you always wanted to learn a bit more Hebrew?

10 Minutes of Torah

Who among us is so busy that he or she cannot spend 10 minutes a day in the study of a Jewish text? Just 10 minutes? Such a commitment would enable us to meet our Jewish obligation to make Jewish study a fixed occurrence. We make time to answer our cell phones a dozen times a day and to check our email five times an hour...

... surely we can find 10 minutes to contemplate sacred words that nourish the soul.
