Learn how to read from the Torah:
This course is aimed to those who wish to learn how to read from the Torah or how to keep up with the Torah reading according to Ashkenazi tradition. Together we will practice and the goal is to keep up with the Torah reading in synagogue, and for those who wish, to be able to read from the weekly Torah portion. This would then be coordinated with your local synagogue’s rabbi.
We welcome both new and returning participants. To participate you need to be familiar with the Hebrew alphabet, but you do not need to be able to read fluently.
