Hebrew language learning classes using the immersive Ulpan method are offered every weekday, online with the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan. Winter/spring classes begin Monday, February 28.
In this virtual program, learners — ranging from college students to spouses of Hebrew speakers to American Jews planning on visiting Israel — are taught Hebrew the way it is spoken every day. Small classes allow for individualized attention, and sessions at all proficiency levels are held in the morning and evening.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the JCC’s Ulpan classes have remained virtual, expanding their reach far beyond the Upper West Side, and have become accessible to eager students across the country. Classes are open to absolute beginners, who start with the Hebrew alphabet, to the most advanced students, who read and discuss articles from a variety of Hebrew newspapers. For those interested in in-person learning, the JCC is offering one in-person beginner class.
The unique faculty (made up almost entirely of native Hebrew speakers) and their commitment to teaching Hebrew as a modern spoken language make the JCC New York City’s premier location for learning modern conversational Hebrew. Many students take the JCC’s Ulpan classes for years.
New students at all levels above the Beginner Aleph course are required to take a placement test. To arrange for a test or for more information, contact Ulpan Director Anila Sole at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit this page to learn more.
