Hebrew Reading Crash Course

NJOP’s innovative introductory Hebrew program teaches participants to learn to read Hebrew in only five 1-1/2 hour weekly sessions.

NJOP’s most popular program, has already taught more than 250,000 North American Jews to read Hebrew. Designed for Jews with little or no background in Hebrew, the free Hebrew Reading Crash Course concentrates on teaching the Hebrew alphabet, and reading skills.

77% of participants in this course go on to the Level II Hebrew course, or the Crash Course in Basic Judaism. (NJOP has also published Russian, Hungarian and Spanish editions of the Reishith Binah primer to meet the needs of Jewish communities around the world.)

The HRCC materials are easy to teach. NJOP provides every teacher with a teacher’s handbook that guides them, step-by-step, through the Hebrew Reading Crash Course (includes wall chart and flash cards).

Each student receives a FREE copy of NJOP’s Reishith Binah Hebrew primer.
