Congregation Bet Haverim of Davis, the only Jewish synagogue in Yolo County, announces three adult education classes beginning this month.

Introduction to Judaism: This class provides a broad perspective on the rich teachings and traditions of the Jewish heritage. The spiritual essence of Judaism, its history, texts and celebrations is the focus of the class, as well as those ideas and customs that make Judaism unique.

This class is perfect for anyone, Jewish or not, who is interested in deepening his or her appreciation of Judaism.

Rabbi Wolfe and Congregant Steve Cohen will lead the class, which meets twice monthly, from 10:30 a.m. to noon Sundays (beginning this Sunday) and from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Oct. 23. The class meets approximately 15 times between now and May ion the Congregation Bet Haverim library, 1715 Anderson Road. A fee will be charged.

Prayer Book Hebrew: This class explores the prayers in the Siddur or prayer book, and together the class will learn to translate the exact words of the Friday night prayers from English to Hebrew and discuss some roots and compositions of those words. Knowledge of the Hebrew Alef Bet is desirable. If time permits, the class will work on the Saturday morning service.

Galia Franco will teach this class, which meets for 10 consecutive Mondays from 7 to 8 p.m. beginning this week in the South Classroom at CBH. A fee will be charged.

Learn Torah/Haftorah Trope: Have you ever wondered why the Torah (Jewish Bible) and Haftorah (Prophets) are chanted rather than simply read? In this class, students will begin to unlock the mysteries of Torah and Haftorah texts by learning to chant the ancient melodies of the Haftorah and Torah with Ernie Biberstein.

An organizational meeting is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday; there will be approximately five additional classes. The class meets in the South Classroom at CBH. A fee will be charged.

For more information or to register for any of the classes, call the Congregation Bet Haverim office at 530-758-0842.
