Biblical Hebrew

Instructors: Rahel Halabe and Ryan Blackwelder

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 textbook. The Hinneh program is semi academic, rigorous and practical, serious but friendly at the same time. Vocabulary and grammar are demonstrated through short, original biblical passages, facilitating independent reading in the actual text. Courses require a few hours of homework per week to allow good absorption of the material.
