ADULT HEBREW:Have you always wanted to learn Hebrew but never found the time? Did you once know how to read Hebrew, but the rings on the trees have accumulated since your bar/bat mitzvah and your skills are a bit shaky? Can you sort of follow along, but resort to the transliteration every time? Are your kids learning Hebrew and you wish you could help them? If you have nodded your head yes to any of these, you are not alone! Join us on a self-paced, independent study journey to learn to read Hebrew. Each participant works through the curriculum independently at her or his own speed. The focus is on prayer-book Hebrew. We meet once a month to support and encourage each other, share tricks, ask questions, and read aloud with each other.
HIDDEN IN FRANCE On Sunday, October 14, 2018, Congregation Tikkun v’Or was pleased to present “Hidden in France,” a program about ordinary people in a small village in Normandy, France, who resisted and saved 30 Jewish children from 1942-1945. Thanks to Jonathan Plotkin, we have a video recording of their presentation: https://youtu.be/0J2snGDiqlA
