What are YOU interested in learning?
NEW!! Adult B'nai Mitzvah Class
Perhaps you never had the opportunity to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah when you were 13 years old. Or perhaps you did, but the experience was not especially meaningful for you, and you would like to remedy that. Or maybe you just want to learn what didn’t ‘stick’ as a child. Whatever your personal reason, we want to take this journey with you.
Prerequisite: Beginning Hebrew Reading Class or a basic knowledge of Hebrew.
Please email us for more information at email@example.com
Beginner Hebrew - Ivrit
This course teaches you how to read Hebrew and exposes you to modern spoken Hebrew as well as Siddur (prayer book) Hebrew.
More Hebrew - Ivrit
This course is for those who already read basic Hebrew, and want ‘more’, both siddur (prayer book) and Torah Hebrew, as well as modern and conversational Hebrew.
Torah and/or Haftarah Trope
This is an opportunity to learn trope, the cantillation marks that inform how each word is chanted. You will be able to use this skill to chant short passages of Torah for a Shabbat or holiday service, or for a family simcha.
MakomNY offers a variety of programs geared toward intergenerational learning and experiences. We take trips together, cook together and learn about holidays, history, Israel and more together. If you are interested in Family programs, please email us HERE.
Please email us if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org; minimum of six students needed for the class.
All Classes will meet in the Jerusalem Room at the Bethpage Worship Center, 600 Broadway in Bethpage.
Classes are taught by Sherry Gutes and/or Rabbi Bravo. Other events by request of MakomNY participants.
