Regarding the poem: it obviously is not a problem of getting the meaning of each word...

Well, you got to start somewhere. But perhaps you're right, this might not be the right event for a rank beginner.
I also answered this question previously and I suggested that whoever wants to attend later could try the monthy meeeting at the NY Health Bar which happens at 7 p.m.
I think I did ask if the two were being held concurrently, and I didn't see any answer / or missed it. Sorry.
Check the Hebrew Language Meetup calendar. ALL meetups are posted there.
^^^ This was in response to Judorange's inquiry regarding meetings being held. . .
Precisely. The latest "regular" meeting by Bighorse was back in November, and then it morphed into this new setup. I don't see any suggested "regular" meeting. Hence my question.
I don't know what is up with BigHorse. He might be out of the country for a few weeks, he tends to travel a lot, so keep your eyes peeled, he might well resume his once-a-month-Tuesday-night meetup event in February.
sorry - i fell on the ice, and I don't think I'm going anywhere
Ughhh. I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it wasn't too serious an injury and that you will be feeling better soon. I was looking forward to meeting you, and I am still looking forward to meeting you but sometime in the future. Feel better soon.
too bad its too early
I'm a recent user of meetup and I didn't know about that taking the initiative thing. All I ever saw, were regular meetings by bighorse, and very recently someone complained about the space (understandably so), and everything changed : place, time, leader... At some point I thought I was on another meetup page altogether ! Now I understand the mechanism better, thank you.
Re: time of meet up that some people are objecting to:I have nothing to do with determining the time of the meet up but some people welcome the earlier time. I think that there are just as many people who welcome the earlier time as those who oppose it. As they say, you can't please all of the people all of the time. If you cannot get there that early why not just come when you can. I don't think anyone will be penalized for coming late.

The poem looks nice... Bringing pieces of texts to translate / talk about is a nice idea too. But this poem is of an extremely high level of hebrew. I doubt this will benefit the beginners... :/

Why is the meetup so early, and why doesn't anybody ever reply to that question?
The meeting is that early because whomever posted it, and I believe it was Val, found that time to be not "So early" but just right for her schedule. That's the thing, whomever is the one who takes responsibility for creating and posting an event gets to pick the location, the time they themselves prefer -- it's the reward for taking the initiative. Personally, I LOVE the time. I refuse to try to kill 1.5 hours between the end of work and the start of an event anymore. Why no ever answered before, I couldn't say. This is the first time I've personally seen this question posted, but I haven't been coming here regularly.
I would like to perhaps discuss a poem by Rachel-Balaila-See this link in case you would like to print it out and translate it before the meetup. http://benyehuda.org/rachel/Rac087.html

Just putting it out there that I work in The Village till 5:30, so I probably won't arrive before 6:00 or perhaps 6:15, but unless I say otherwise, I am planning to be there.

Shalom. Is this meetup meant for a particular level of Hebrew conversation? Thanks

Hi Elki: I am not the organizer of this event, but BigHorses' general rule is ALL ARE WELCOME no matter what level one's Hebrew is. THAT SAID, I am delighted to see that you speak fairly fluently. It gets impossible to hold any kind of conversation if the overwhelming majority of attendees are beginners. I will be delighted to meet you.
I am glad to see there are a few people who can carry a real conversation signed up to attend! I can't wait to meet you.
EVERYONE is welcome, even if you just want to learn Hebrew but can't put together a sentence yet, however, sometimes, for those who are more fluent, it is VERY nice to find a few people with whom one can just sit down and talk in Hebrew about whatever topic happens to come up and not struggle over the conversation too much. I like the balance, beginners AND advanced speakers, not just beginners . . . :)
