Join us as we study one biblical story over eight weeks, in the process learning Hebrew Vocabulary, Grammar, Tricks, Techniques, Wordplay, Meaning, and Midrash, all in the footsteps of the Rabbis. [This will be a specifically Jewish reading of the text.]
J. Caleb Payne* will lead us in this study of Elementary Biblical Hebrew ‘Grammar’ (with Rabbi Joe facilitating). The general text chosen is Genesis 6:9-11:26 – Noah, or The Flood, a foundational text in Judaism. We will cover roots, grammatical constructs, meanings imparted, word formation, and Midrashic interpretation.
* Information on Mr. Payne’s credentials will be offered at the first session.
We will meet on Sundays; 5/1, 5/8, 5/15, 6/19, 6/26, 7/10, 7/17, and 7/24, at 4-5:30 pm. The location is Temple House of Israel, 15 N. Market Street. Please enter through the glass door facing the parking lot and Beverly Street.
The series of classes is FREE (donations accepted), and open to anyone who is able to recognize the Hebrew Alphabet. The number of spaces is limited, so please RSVP to Rabbi Joe at RabbiJoeB@Hotmail.com or 925-272-8563. The text materials will be distributed before the first class session by email – please be sure to contact Rabbi Joe. Bring a copy of the Bible – preferably with Hebrew, English, & Commentary, if available.
