Chabad of the East Valley is offering a “Hebrew Reading Crash Course” to give Jews better skills in the Hebrew language before the start of High Holidays at nightfall on Sept. 12.

Rabbi Mendy Deitsch said the course is designed to teach those with no knowledge to read Hebrew in five lessons. It’s an “effort to inspire unaffiliated Jews to become more involved in Jewish life during the upcoming new Jewish year and to provide all Jews with a more meaningful High Holiday experience,” he said. Classes begin 7:30 p.m. Aug. 18 at the Chabad Center, 3875 W. Ray Road, Suite 6, Chandler.

Deitsch said an estimated 4 million American Jews are not affiliated with any congregation, and often their only connection comes during Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. The goal, he said, is to “open the door to a full year of Jewish growth and commitment.” For more information or to register, call (480) 855-4333 or visit
