Chabad at the Beaches offers Read it in Hebrew course


Read it in Hebrew, a flashcard-based language course capable of teaching students how to read Hebrew in five weeks, is set to begin Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Chabad at the Beaches facility located on 521 A1A N.

The program was developed by the Jewish Learning Institute (JLI).

“Many people feel lost in synagogue, because they don’t know how to read Hebrew," Rabbi Levi Kaplan of JLI explained. "We have found that learning how to read Hebrew strengthens one’s feeling of connection to Judaism in a powerful way. Read it in Hebrew fills a tremendous need.”

The first two lessons of Read it in Hebrew will focus on the letters of the Hebrew alphabet while the last three will introduce vowels and teach students how to read words. The program will also utilize flashcards portraying the letters alongside catchy mnemonics to make the language easy to digest.

Attendees do not need a background in Jewish learning or an affiliation with a particular synagogue, temple, or house of worship to participate in the course, which is open to the public. Call (904) 770-0502 or visit for registration and other course-related information.

The Jewish Learning Institute is the adult education branch of Chabad-Lubavitch that offers programs in more than 350 U.S. cities and numerous foreign locations. The organization was founded in 1998.
