For ALL levels: Hebrew lee-crow e-tone sessions

This is ONE event for beginners AND advanced readers --- and everything in between. We will split into groups according to our abilities. TO THE NEW BEGINNERS: Gilad Torenberg, new Hebrew meetup member, native Hebrew speaker and very patient teacher, has been more than gracious in agreeing to lead the beginners' group of the lee-crow (reading) meetup. This is a huge opportunity for anyone who is interested in learning Hebrew. Even if you know nothing of Hebrew you can come and participate in the beginners' group at this event. Bring paper and something with which to write. This is ONE event for beginners AND advanced readers --- and everything in between. We will split into groups according to our abilities. There is a $2.00 fee for this event. You are welcome to bring food with you or you can buy a snack at the Starbucks that is on the premises. Midtown location: Look for a table with a Meetup Sign near the giant SpiderMan (i.e. Wallcrawler, Webhead) hanging from the ceiling. For custom directions via MTA (public transportation) go to:

Kaaron, Assistant Organizer ___________________________________________________________________________________ Midtown location: Look for a table near the giant SpiderMan (i.e. Wallcrawler, Webhead) with Meetup Sign. "Lee Crow E-Tone" means "Reading the Newspaper" which is what we will do with articles from Hebrew language newspapers. The previous such events featured good quality language practice. We read and discussed articles with and without nikud (the dots which indicate vowels often dropped in writing Hebrew). If the Hebrew written language is new to you, we will help you learn the "alef bet" i.e. alphabet -- there is a newly formed beginners group at this meetup. If you know the alef bet, please bring your own article at a level you find a little challenging, but if you can't find one, there will be plenty to go around. For example, the article can be from a easy Hebrew newspaper like Yanshuf or Sha'ar L'Matkhil, or from the Israeli dailies Yediot Achranot, Ma'ariv, or Haaretz. Please be able to give as best you can a synopsis of the piece as well as the meaning of any new vocabulary words from the article. Each article presentation will be followed by a discussion, in hebrew, in depth, but with the focus on language. In depth political discussions can be done at a different opportunity. Manhattan has very limited free parking in general, but on Sundays meters can be parked at. Public transportation: E,V (5 Ave.); N,R,W (5 Ave) 4,5,6 (59th St) among other trains stop nearby as well as the 5th Ave and Madison Ave buses also stop nearby or check hopstop.com for detailed and customized directions via public transportation. There is a Starbucks nearby or you can bring your own food with you if you like. This event will have a fee of $2 per person, to help subsidize this organizers expenses for the traditionally free once-a-month meeting at Humus Place which will continue of course.

    The instructions specifically requested us to meet near the Spiderman display. It took 20 minutes for someone to actually make it over there- the group had already begun.

    Good turnout. Very nice people. Two groups, one for beginners one for advanced. Covered a very interesting article, learned new words, made a new friend. Pretty damn good.
