Galilean Aramaic: Speaking The Language of Christ

March 28 2015 Workshop

Saturday, March 28, 2015 1-4pm in the Ross Room

Cost: $50, waivers available

Galilean Aramaic was the language of Jesus of Nazareth and a large body of early Rabbinic literature which was nearly lost to the march of time and well-intentioned negligence. Taught by Steve Caruso, this 3 hour workshop provides the history of the dialect, what remains of it both within and outside of the New Testament tradition, and introduces the student to the basics of reading, writing, and speaking through storytelling and conversation. This workshop will also serve as a means to gauge interest in holding weekly Aramaic language classes within the Diocese of New Jersey. Cost includes books and learning materials. No one will be turned away.

Registration will be $100 (waivers also available). It will meet one hour, twice a week for four weeks (8 sessions total) at Christ Church New Brunswick and will cover introductory conversational (spoken) material, reading, writing, memorization, and recitation. Each student will keep a S’far Da‘watha (“Book of Knowledge” or “Book of Opinions,” a journal of one’s work and inspirations) in which to keep their notes and musings.

If it is well received, this class will become the first step towards a certificate program that will award, to accomplished students who pass written and oral exams, the title Talmid Leshana (“Student of the Language”).
