In this new and complicated landscape, the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery is going virtual, bringing you an exhibition straight from the gallery walls: Photo Club Vancouver’s exhibit Serenity.

Featuring the work of 19 photographers, Serenity is truly a timely exhibit. Each image presents a take on the concept of joy and calm. They find peace in the simple; they visualize the experience of wondering where peace can be found; they struggle to find peace in places that have always been peaceful, but now, at this moment, are something else.

Serenity is a journey - an escape, a memory, and hope for the future. Enjoy it here.

Biblical Hebrew

Instructor: Rahel Halabe

Acquire effective tools to help you understand and be inspired by the biblical text in its original Hebrew.

The JCC offers Biblical Hebrew courses based on Rahel Halabe’s Hinneh textbook. The Hinneh program is semi academic, rigorous and practical, serious but friendly at the same time. Vocabulary and grammar are demonstrated through short, original biblical passages, facilitating independent reading in the actual text. Courses require a few hours of homework per week to allow good absorption of the material.

Please e-mail or call Rahel with your questions and for assessment of your level. 604 879 2677
