Jewish community life is as broad and rich as Judaism itself. Family and Festivals, study and worship, history and food—all of these connect us to our heritage and to one another.
However, because we are known as “the People of the Book”, familiarity with Hebrew and Jewish texts is essential. You will find that demonstrating the ability to stand together with your congregation during prayer and to read the ancient Hebrew for yourself is both personally exhilarating and inspiring to others. It is an affirmation of who we are as Jews, and of each Jew’s place with Moses at Mt. Sinai.
Also, because Hebrew is a living language, learning modern Hebrew can deepen one’s Jewish identity. It not only strengthens cultural ties with other Hebrew speakers throughout the world; it enables independent communication when traveling to Israel.
