The Jewish Learning Exchange Cares

The Jewish Learning Exchange is located at 512 N. La Brea.

I remember taking a beginner’s Hebrew class there. It was taught by the boss — Rabbi Avrohom Czapnik. He was exceedingly patient and good humored despite the many stupid interruptions he endured from some of the dimmer bulbs in the class.

When I missed a session, I found two CDs and a packet of notes in my mail box, providing everything I’d missed.
