Global Stories - Hebrew

Saturday, May 4, 2024 - 10:30am to 11:00am

First Saturday Readalouds offered in different languages by Lake Oswego community members. This month Tommer Wizansky shares in Hebrew. Each month spotlights a different world language, familiar songs, and a simple craft.

From Tommer: My name is Tommer and I grew up in Israel, a country in the middle-east, on the Mediterranean sea.  Israel is a diverse and multicultural country with Jewish, Muslim, Christian and other communities living side by side. Israel is home to both new immigrants as well as communities that are hundreds of years old and we speak a wide array of languages including Hebrew, Arabic, English, Russian, Ladino (a Spanish dialect used by certain Jewish communities), Yiddish and more. I moved to the US 20 years ago for graduate school and have been living in Lake Oswego for the past three. I work as a software engineer and love hiking, camping and all things outdoors.  

(If your native language is not English, and you are interested in reading a story aloud to children at the library, please speak to one of our Youth Services Librarians for more information.)
