Meet the Hebrew Chat Group
Jack Fackerell studied Hebrew at the University of Washington and at Hebrew Union College. He lived in Jerusalem, Israel and a development town in the Negev desert, where he was a teacher. Hebrew is a passion and a source of great joy for him. NWLACC is lucky to have such a dedicated and talented leader and educator.

The Hebrew chat group began in April 2016 with 3 members. They now have 7 members plus the leader. 5 of these members have been to Israel, some lived there for years. Some of the members are Jewish, others are not. New members have been joining over time. Their goal is to have one meeting in Israel!

Participants have many diverse motivations encouraging them to attend the Hebrew Chat. For some, this is their only opportunity to practice Hebrew and keep the language alive. Others enjoy learning about Israeli culture through group members and the wonderful leader, Jack. The sessions encourage members to study more at home and continue to learn! Chat groups are social and fun, the location is convenient and the group itself is very welcoming!

The Hebrew Chat Group meets every Friday from 2:00-3:00. 

All are welcome to join, the connection with Israel is something we all share!
