Shalom! Teaching Hebrew in Kraków…

In this episode of The Debrief, we have a quick Hebrew lesson and meet with teacher Sapir Librowski-Sher.

It’s great to be back in the studio after some unexpected time off after I came down with Covid at the end of 2022. I’m now back on my feet and we are kicking off our fourth season here at The Debrief with a slight change of style, you might have noticed our funky new jingle!

Host John Beauchamp joins Sapir Librowski-Sher, a Hebrew teacher at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Originally from Tel Aviv, we hear of how she came to Poland and what it’s like for her to get in touch with her Polish-Jewish roots.
