    Learn Hebrew!

    The Hebrew Café offers free assistance with Hebrew learning. On our main forum (Jewish Forums), you can ask questions related to Hebrew without any need to sign up for a learning course. If you want to learn Hebrew more completely, you may start with the alphabet resources listed on our Resources page and then get invovled in a study group!

  • Learn about Judaism!

    We offer a forum dedicated to the discussion of Judaism and Jewish (and Israeli) culture/values. If you are Jewish or just want to discuss Judaism, feel free to sign up and ask questions. (We would appreciate it, though, if you read and agreed to the rules of the forum before posting. Thanks!)

  • Learn Greek or Aramaic!

    In addition to Hebrew, we offer assistance with both biblical Aramaic and Greek (both Attic and Κοινή). Those interested in studying Aramaic may do so on the Hebrew forum (the two languages are combined there). Those interested in studying Greek will use the same type of system, but on its own forum.

Opening new Greek course

We’ve decided to open up a new study of Greek: An Intensive Course by Hardy Hansen and Gerald M. Quinn. We’ll be doing some recruitment on various sites to get some interest stirred up. You’re welcome to join in if you have (or would like to purchase) the textbook. Contact Jason for more information.
Update: In the past 24 hours, our list of participants has grown to seven. I’ll be putting the last touches on the plans for our study, and then I plan to send a group mail to everyone that will have a link to the main page of the study with all the necessary information. I’m really looking forward to this!

Website Update

The site went through a major overhaul today. The goal of this overhaul was to make it more attractive by adding better interaction, updating and fixing broken links, and unifying parts of the site that had been neglected. Next on the slate is a new calendar for study groups and the addition of a Facebook group.

Aramaic on Hold; Greek Moving Forward

Our Aramaic study is on hold for the moment. The academic year has just drawn to a close, so we’re pausing to take a breath and then going back into it. We are currently on chapter 8 of Greenspahn’s textbook and will be picking it back up soon. The beginners Greek group is moving along steadily. We are doing one assignment per week and have just opened what we call assignment 3-6. There is one more assignment left in chapter 3 before we move on to chapter 4 of Taylor’s Greek to GCSE.
