HEBREW CLASSES – spring session 2019

Want to learn Hebrew? You’re in the right place!
The Edlavitch DCJCC offers seven levels of conversational Hebrew, from learning the aleph bet to reading advanced literature. Our teachers are native Hebrew speakers with many years of teaching experience. They regularly tweak their classes to fit the needs and interests of their students.
