Biblical Hebrew Reading and Understanding; Phila, PA, M.A. Education, All religions welcome

Methodology

Learn to read and understand the Hebrew Bible.
We will work together to explore this Holy text in its original language!

Biblical Hebrew is a great love of mine! I assist the Rabbi in leading the Jewish Hebrew prayer service, and in singing the verses of the Hebrew Bible. I have a Master's Degree in Education, and I'm certified in both Math and Special Education. All religions, ages, abilities welcome!

Background

I've been teaching Hebrew for over three decades- 33 years. Hundreds of students have become proficient in reading and understanding the Hebrew Bible, in my care. They go on to participate fully in Jewish services, read the Hebrew Bible with greater understanding, and bring back vital knowledge to their non-Jewish communities.
