Uptown Hebrew is the afternoon Hebrew component for Touro Synagogue’s Religious Education program. Our aim is to promote and facilitate education in the Hebrew language, Jewish liturgy and literature, Torah, and the vocabulary of Jewish life.
The Hebrew language is a central thread linking world Jewry past, present, and future. Knowledge of the Hebrew language, with an emphasis on mechanical reading skills and vocabulary, is a prerequisite for Bar and Bat Mitzvah. Uptown Hebrew can provide an essential part of that preparation.
