"Beyond the Hebrew Letters"

"And G‑d said 'let there be light' ... and there was light". The letters and words of the Hebrew alphabet - teaches the Torah - are the building blocks of the universe.
In this course we will unearth the mystical dimension of the Hebrew letters of the "Alef Bet". The letters' names, their phonetic sounds, their graphic design, and even their corresponding numerical values will shed light on the infinite wisdom embedded within these G‑dly letters.  

This course will review the overview of the original course, and continue to new letters in the alef bet, which were not yet discussed. Whether you're attending this course for the first time, or returning from the previous course, you will find this course intriguing, meaningful and educational.  

3 Tuesdays, March 11, 18, 25 – 7:00 – 8:30 pm at the Chabad House JCC – 4410 Douglas Blvd. Granite Bay.

Cost: $10 per class / $25 entire course.
