1st SHABBAT OF THE MONTH, 9:00 - 10:30 AM

Join us on the first Shabbat of the month for a meditative service that brings you back to the original intent of the Shabbat Liturgy. The Kabbalists saw the Siddur (prayerbook) as a map of the higher universes. Get your spiritual GPS working when you tune in this monthly meditation. Followed by the holiest whitefish and lox Kiddush.

Meditation can serve as a opening to your davening or as a great start to your day.  Breath, visualize, imagine, contemplate and connect using ancient wisdom and modern knowledge.

Our Monthly meditative service meets throughout the year.

Join us for our THIRD year!

Biblical Hebrew Grammar -
Go to the Source!

Dear Friend, All translations are interpretations. Would you like to get a more accurate understanding of Tanach from the original Hebrew, rather than the English translation? 

Well, the truth of the matter is, you cannot hope to understand the Hebrew, even if you know what each word means, unless you know the grammar of the language. Imagine trying to understand English sentences by knowing only the meaning of words, without any sense of the grammar.

To address this problem, we wish to again offer a 18-week college-level course on Biblical Hebrew grammar, meeting once a week (Began September 4th) from 7:30 PM to 9 PM on Thursday evenings. The course will be taught by Gavriel Wasserman, an experienced Hebrew language scholar.

The only prerequisite for the course is the ability to read Hebrew with vowels and, hopefully, a smattering of vocabulary knowledge. During the course, your vocabulary will increase by 50 words per week, so that your vocabulary at the end will be moderate in size. The course is intended for both those who attended last year as well as new participants.

The fee for the course is $250, payable in advance

In addition, each student (wouldn't it be nice to be a student again?) will have to purchase a textbook, and would be advised to purchase a dictionary. Also, the student should expect to study 2 - 3 hours during the week, to do the exercises and memorize the vocabulary words.
