A weekly or bi-monthly casual gathering, non facilitated, just friends who speak some Hebrew gathering for lunch or a coffee. The Café v’Ivrit experience is for those who have some Hebrew skills, but are not necessarily fluent, who want to socialize in Hebrew. Their conversations are in Hebrew, but at their own pace. Great for newcomers to make new connections. Some Israelis have found a home in Café v’Ivrit too enjoying the social with this group of adults many of whom have lived in Israel, or have friends and family living in Israel.
