Hebrew Lessons for Yavneh Parents

Interested in bagels, OJ and a bit of Hebrew vocabulary while your children are in Yavneh? On March 1, 15 and 22 from 9:30-11:30am, we’ll pilot an informal and fun program to enhance your knowledge of Hebrew language. We will cover vocabulary that is relevant to the time of year and current events, learn some slang, and also where to find Israeli news and Hebrew reading material. No prior knowledge of Hebrew is necessary, although if you know some this will help improve your reading and comprehension. You won’t be asked to read out loud, or take a quiz! Each session will be independent of the others, so come to 1, 2 or all 3!
