An Online Course with Dr. David Zev Moster

2:00–3:30 p.m. ET   

Develop your skills in translating passages of the Tanakh independently.  In eight live online sessions, we will read and workshop passages selected by the instructor and participants, using a variety of resources including Accordance Bible Software* and Dr. Moster’s Tanakh cards. We will approach grammar inductively, exploring linguistic phenomena as they come up in our study of the selected passages. Participants will be encouraged to complete an assignment for each class. By the end of the course, participants will be able to parse (in terms of person, number, and tense) every type of Hebrew Qal verb.  

Recordings will be available for those unable to attend a session. Space is limited. 

Prerequisite: Completion of Biblical Hebrew I. If you have not completed this course but believe you have the equivalent background, please schedule a conversation with the instructor prior to enrollment. To take this course, you should be able to translate any three biblical verses on your own and break down verses into their grammatical components. 

Cost: $415 (Limited financial assistance available)
