Hebrew Education Celebration

Contributed by Sandra M. Z. Armstrong

On Saturday, February 17 Congregation Sof Ma’arav will be having our annual celebration for Biblical Hebrew classes that includes a delicious Oneg. Please come and celebrate with us!

All classes including the weekly children’s class will participate. Instruction in basic Hebrew and beyond forms a broad basis of who we are and what we accomplish as a community. In general, our classes go from beginner Hebrew, to advanced beginner (with a greater knowledge of the Saturday morning service), to story time and Hebrew letters with our children, to intermediate, advanced intermediate and advanced.

Our newest education adventure is a Torah Trope class formulated to encourage, explore, and enjoy knowledge of musical cantillation. Development of Torah reading skills within the framework of this class has been more fun than anyone could ever imagine. We would not usually equate cantillation skills with fun. With the right mix of people and the desired goal of achievement the rewards and laughter have formed a cohesive group of like-minded individuals.
