This summer, we'll be gathering in groups to read and discuss the Gospels. While we expect to have a few groups, we'll start with Tuesday evenings, 7:30pm.
Feel free to bring a snack to share!

This fun, interactive course, based upon the ulpan and Total Physical Response (TPR) models in Israel, lays the foundation for continued study towards reading and understanding the Hebrew Bible.
