Announcements #073: New Hebrew Ulpan Online with WebYeshiva

New Hebrew Ulpan Online with WebYeshiva

We are the "People of the Book." Wouldn't you like to read and understand "the book" without being dependent on a translation?

WebYeshiva, the world's first online yeshiva and midrasha, headed by Rabbi Chaim Brovender, is excited to offer three new courses teaching Hebrew language given by Rabbi Shlomo Eitan, founder of "Ulpan Eitan." Learn to read the Tanach, Siddur and Mishna in the original Hebrew and experience the joy of understanding independently the beauty of the original text first-hand, without the crutch of translations.

Gone is the drudgery of memorization, the fear of getting bored, the confusion of learning grammar, and intimidation of vocabulary overload. Rabbi Eitan has developed a unique, user friendly approach that has proven successful with adults who want to develop their Hebrew skills, overcome their fear of the language, or feel at home in classical Jewish sources. Using the cutting edge video conferencing technology of WebYeshiva, this is a unique learning opportunity which promises real growth in the study of the Hebrew language for the experienced student or the novice.
