Group Description

Aramaic, also known as Syriac, was the primary language of the Near East for thousands of years. It was the language spoken by Jesus Christ and His disciples, and is also the liturgical language of several Near Eastern churches including: the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch, the Assyrian Church of the East, the Maronite Catholics, Syrian Catholics, and Chaldean Catholics.

This group will function as a study group for the Syrian Orthodox community, but all are invited to join in and learn or practice this rich traditional language. As this group is sponsored by members of the Syrian Orthodox Church, our focus will be on the study of the Classical Syriac language with an emphasis placed on the Western Syriac accent.

Those who speak Turoyo and Surith are also welcome to share in their dialect's nuances. If you'd like to join the group, please send an email to the moderator telling a litte bit about yourself (i.e., do you speak Syriac? which dialect? how you found out about the group, what church you belong to, etc.)
