My Name is Reverend Father Shimshon Temmo, and I currently serve at St Mary's Parish in Egaelo and St George mission Church in Thessaloniki.
I have served as a Deacon across multiple Churches in Sydney, learning and reading the Aramaic language. I was ordained into the Priesthood and served as a Priest at St Hurmizd Cathedral, St. Marys Parish, St George’s and St. Peters and Paul’s Parish.
While performing and fulfilling my Priesthood duties in Sydney, I commenced Theological studies at Nisibis Theological College. After completing my service in Sydney, I travelled to Greece to serve the Assyrian community in St Marys Parish, Athens and Thessaloniki.
Me as a Teacher
While serving as a priest in Sydney, I taught the Aramaic language to students embarking on becoming fluent readers.
Upon moving to Greece, I began teaching face-to-face clergy, choir, and general parishioners the language to read during liturgical services fluently. Moreover, I also introduced the Aramaic language to the local Greek people, both academic and none academic.
My teaching expanded online, where I currently teach Aramaic to various students, both academic and none academic. Likewise, I can assist those interested in Aramaic Scripture, hymns, songs, praises or general history.
My lessons & teaching style
Beginning such an ancient language might seem like a rugged mountain to climb. However, it is pretty easy because, through my experiences, I have found the most accessible avenue to teach the Aramaic language to modern society.
Also, simplicity is crucial in learning such an ancient language. So, perfecting the essential elements of the Aramaic language is very important.
Equally significant, having fun while learning is another crucial aspect of understanding and enjoying Aramaic. Therefore, I aim to deliver an enthusiastic, energetic, positive and delightful vibe during our lessons.

Each class is full of rich insights valuable information. Even when reviewing concepts the Reverend augments the process of learning by providing a manageable array of examples or by adding short exercises to reinforce the learning process.
