Advanced Hebrew Class:
Class Description: The advanced class will be using the Ulpan Or text book. The book contains different life situations which will be discussed by the teacher and students. The Ulpan Or text book also contains various exercises practicing vocabulary and reading comprehension. In addition, we will read the short stories of Aharon Meged and meet, not only Israeli characters from the fifties, but also the social and political scene of that time. Hebrew conversations are the central part of the lesson. We will discuss current events in Israel as well as Jewish social and political themes when relevant. We will also read articles about the Jewish holidays, as well as "shmooze" in Hebrew about our daily life.
