Hiring a fluent Hebrew speaker to speak Hebrew to my child

I am hoping to hire someone who I can employ to come hang out with my 2 year old son and speak Hebrew with him. It will primarily be when we are in our home so it will not be babysitting, just exposing him to Hebrew -- reading books, singing songs, chatting.

We are only looking for 1-2 hours a week so it's a job ideally for a student who will be on campus and could easily come over to our home for such a short period of time (we live on 8th St. and University.)

I would have posted this to classifieds but that's disabled. I hope there's another way you can distribute it.

Please let me know if you have any questions. My email is sarahkcowan@nyu.edu

Thanks,
Sarah

Idan Rafael Haviv Concert

Idan Rafael Haviv is a multidisciplinary artist, self-taught, openly dealing with different artistic genres in parallel, such as painting, visual arts, poetry, photography and more. In recent years Idan became one of the busiest artists in Israel, working on a third album and with two albums that reached gold status and merited praises and a successful tour that swept a large audience.

Idan’s Acoustic show, accompanied by original video content he shot and edited, conveys a sense of genuine intimacy with the audience. The video adds another depth to the songs. During the performance Idan plays favorite songs from both albums that were played constantly in Israeli radio stations, including “Mechaka-Waiting”, “Achshav o leolam-Now or never”, “Ein po makom-There is no place here,” “Kol paam ketsat – A bit every time” “Or adom-Red Light”, “Kmo kol yom- Like every day” and also songs he touched such as “Ima, aba vekol hashar – Mom, Dad and all the rest”, “Ad shetachzor – Until you return”, “Balayla – At night”.

Idan was born in Rehovot Israel, but spent most of his adolescent years in Reut Israel. Idan joined the Israeli Navy Comando fleet in 1998, and was discharged in 2004 with the rank of captain; with his release Idan began his artistic career independently. In 2011 Idan issued the debut album “A little bit each time” and in 2013 his second album “Lose interest in Time”, both albums were musically produced by Gilad Shmueli.

Idan collaborated with The Idan Raichel Project’s songs, “Mom, Dad and all the rest” and “At night” which won song of the year 2013. Idan also wrote the song “Until you return” for Yuval Dayan.

During 2014 Idan had his first art exhibition of his work at a gallery in Jaffa curetted by Guy Morag Tzflobitz. In early 2015 Idan photographed, directed and edited the first music video for the song “Who touched you” which he wrote at the beginning of his musical career, thus came into another creative field of photography and video editing.

Today, Idan continues to create and perform simultaneously working on another album.
