Learn to Read Hebrew: The Passover Haggadah


April 4, 2023


07:00 PM - 09:00 PM EDT


Are you looking forward to Passover? Is this the year that you will sing mah nishtanahdayenu, and the order of the seder by reading them (and more) in Hebrew? No more transliteration; no more only reading the translation. In this 3-session online class, learn with veteran educator Debbie Betesh as we practice reading Hebrew through the blessings and prayers of the haggadah, listen to the melodies (links will be built into the lessons), and even sing along!

This class is designed for anyone with a familiarity with Hebrew letters and vowels and a comfort with the basics of decoding. There is no expectation of fluency, and all reading levels are welcome! We will review all of the basics of Hebrew decoding and build skills through these texts.

Class meets online on Tuesdays, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time, March 21 - April 4, 2023. All are welcome. Register to participate in all 3 sessions.

As a Jewish educator for 30+ years, Debbie takes lifelong Jewish learning very seriously and loves working with motivated adult learners who set aside time in their busy weeks to add Hebrew decoding/reading to their broad knowledge base. When not teaching, Debbie loves to take long walks, read, and keep up with the comings and goings of her 6 adult children and 9 (and counting) grandchildren.
