We offer Hebrew classes for almost every stage of Hebrew language experience and comfort level. Hebrew classes can be taken to prepare for an Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah, to deepen one’s prayer or study of text, or just to improve one’s conversational Hebrew ability.

First Thursday of every month,
7:30pm to 9:30pm

Once a month we share tea and sweets and talk about just about anything.

b'Ivrit. Join Rabbi Sam and Judith Broude with several other SLOW
SPEAKING congregants. Learn a word or two. Have KEF! Your level of competence is
not important. Please call Lynne Belmont for more information (415) 828-3737.
