We have new classes!

Hebrew calligraphy and Hebrew for caligraphers. Led by Ewa Gordon.

Classes will contain:
a) a short lecture about Hebrew calligraphy and Jewish iconography
b) practice of calligraphy
c) Fundamentals of Biblical Hebrew, which will help to copy texts with understanding

While meetings are thought of as a series for beginners, each class is separate, so one can attend an individual class or attend the whole series.

Duration: 90 minutes (30 minutes of lecture and 60 minutes of practice) *EDIT: 90 minutes of practice or 60?)

The first class will take place on Thursday, November 6th at 7pm at the JCC. The following questions will be discussed: "Sofer as a profession". Who is sofer STaM? What tools and materials does he use? What are the basic rules of the sofer's work? Which letters are kosher and which are not? Can women be sofers?

We will also learn the Hebrew alphabet and basic shapes necessary for drawing letters.

Admission: 10 PLN per class, free for JCC members.
