Instructor: Rahel Halabe

Acquire effective tools to help you understand and be inspired by the biblical text in its original Hebrew.
The JCC offers Biblical Hebrew courses based on Rahel Halabe’s Hinneh program. This program is semi academic, rigorous and practical, serious but friendly at the same time. Vocabulary and grammar are demonstrated through many short biblical passages, thus facilitating independent reading and interpretation of straightforward texts. Courses require a few hours of homework per week to allow good absorption of the material.
Please e-mail or call Rahel with your questions and for assessment of your level. 604 879 2677   rahelhalabe@gmail.com

Prerequisite: ability to comfortably read Hebrew with vowels (not necessarily with understanding).

Please note: The Hinneh textbook can be purchased in either its printed or E-Book edition
If you choose the printed edition, check with us if we have copies available for sale.
