A free Hebrew class meets every Tuesday night at 6 p.m. in the community room at the R.C. Miller Memorial Library in Beaumont. New students can join at any time.
The class, which has 10 to 12 regular students, is taught by Lamar chemical engineering professor Rafi Tadmor and Arlene Pippin, former volunteer at the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem.
Beginners learn days of the week, numbers, colors and parts of the body and practice writing the Hebrew alphabet on their first day.
“It’s more like a study group,” Pippin said.
