Description: This class is a continuation of the Fall 2021 Hebrew Through Torah class.  If you have some basic knowledge of Hebrew, join us as we continue our informal, organic approach to its grammar and vocabulary.  Using verses from the weekly Parshah and snippets of the siddur as study texts, we’ll explore how words that look and sound very different are actually related. Expect the instructor to interject fun and surprising facts about language in general and about Hebrew’s interconnections with Arabic, Yiddish, English, Spanish, and more.
