The Hebrew Language
Hebrew is an ancient language with a rich cultural history. Commonly associated with Judaism, the language has strong ties to both the religion and the Jewish way of life. In fact, Jews are often referred to as “Hebrews,” though this term is much more common when referring to ancient Jews as opposed to modern ones. Much of the language’s rich history can be found in the many ancient Jewish texts in which Hebrew is used, such as the Torah, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and many other historic texts. The word Hebrew (Ivrit) stems from the word meaning “to cross over” (la-ha-vor), which originated from the Semitic people crossing the Euphrates River.

*For Middle Eastern languages, including Hebrew, Arabic, Farsi, Pashto, Urdu, Hindi, etc., and also German, to properly pronounce the kh or ch is essential, for example, Chanukah (a Jewish holiday) or Khaled (a Muslim name) or Nacht (“night” in German). The best way to describe kh or ch is to say “ka” or “ha” while at the same time putting your tongue at the back of your throat and blowing air. It’s pronounced similarly to the sound that you make while clearing your throat of phlegm.

“A trip to Israel is in my near future! Thanks to this book, in less than 20 minutes a day, I have the basic vocabulary skills needed to communicate with the locals there. This book is perfect for any American that wants to learn Hebrew. Easy to follow, and very well written.” – Paul
“This book is well organized, quick, and easy. At least, as easy as embracing a new language CAN be. I am learning Hebrew using a variety of sources (Rosetta Stone, flash cards, online tutorials, TV, and my native-Israeli partner), and bought this book as another arrow in my multi-faceted quiver. I will say I’ve been impressed. Most of this was not new to me, but I believe the way it’s presented is extremely useful. It doesn’t necessarily seem logical at first glance, and I probably would have been frustrated had I not seen such a variety of approaches in teaching/learning a new language. Having gone through so many learning methods, I do believe this is a reasonable and logical approach. ” – T. Scot
