JOLT Hebrew 2014-15 School Year

Several levels of modern Hebrew are offered. Full descriptions are on the “course description” page. Hebrew is a year-long course (28 weeks)  instead of one semester, and requires students to attend a weekly live webinar in addition to other work. Students are also required to have a computer headset, davkawriter (a Hebrew word processing program), and to purchase the textbook. 

Dates for 2014-15: Each class webinar schedule will be posted in August.  Classes run according to the JCHS calendar, beginning no earlier than September 14 and running through the end of May. 

10th, 11th and 12th graders can apply to take any of these courses for concurrent enrollment college credit.  An additional tuition of $295, plus completion of a separate application is required. 

Each course meets for 1 hour in a live webinar each week, and requires follow up work between sessions.
