Reading Hebrew is an informal, weekly course teaching students how to read Hebrew. It is aimed at beginners and those who have rusty skills and are interested in developing more skills. The focus is reading, not language comprehension; language comprehension will play a role in the advanced class next semester. There will be beginning and intermediate levels offered at the same time. The beginners level will only be offered in the fall, with intermediate and advanced levels offered in Spring 2017. Participants are requested to attend all class meetings. Registration is not required. The course is free of charge, and open to the entire community. It cannot be taken for college credit. There will be a small charge for the text used in each class.
The sessions are weekly 75-minute classes, taught by native Hebrew speakers Shula Holtz, who has been teaching the class since its inception, and Nitsa Auerbach, a native of Tel Aviv and graduate of Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
