Ann Arbor
_
athering around tables at Ann
Arbor's Espresso Royale, the
group meets twice weekly for
coffee and conversation. Topics run
the gamut from college classes to pop
culture. The catch? It's all in Hebrew!
Shulchan Ivrit or "Hebrew
Conversation Table" is a program
run in conjunction with University
of Michigan's Hebrew program and
U-M Hillel.
Participants order their drinks, then
push tables together. Sometimes they
split up by skill level, and other times
everyone stays together. The various
language skills sometimes result in
confusion, but nothing a couple of
hand gestures or the occasional word
in English can't clarify.

without commitment and means that
the size of the group varies every week.
On average, between 10 and 20 par-
ticipants show up.
Since September, Miriam Levine of
Huntington Woods, a U-M junior,
has been running Shulchan Ivrit. A
trip to Israel last summer reminded
the Hillel Day School of Metropolitan
Detroit alum how much she enjoyed
speaking Hebrew.
"I missed the opportunity to use
Hebrew, particularly after this sum-
mer," she said.
When she began working with
Shulchan. Ivrit, the group was meeting
at Hillel. She and Shachar Pinsker, a
Hebrew language professor at U-M,
decided meeting at a coffee shop
would encourage more people to
attend, and U-M Hillel agreed to pay
for coffee.
Students and non-students, with a
variety of language skill levels, partici-
pate, and U-M Hebrew language profes-

Professor Shachar Pinsker
and student Nathan
Stiennon, 19, of West
Bloomfield have a discus-
sion in Hebrew.
