Please contact Donna for more information or check out our calendar for class dates.

Beginning Hebrew (Book 1)

Our Beginning Hebrew students study from Aleph Isn’t Tough by Linda Motzkin. We have found this volume to be ideal for beginners with accessible format and structure. Each chapter contains basic elements of Hebrew study and includes enrichment material. Students are required to purchase this book.

 

Below you will find each chapter of the book and the corresponding workbook exercises in audio format so that you can hear the proper pronunciation as well as a supplement audio that describes the word pictures and other important information. Some students find it helpful to listen to the supplement first and then to the exercises.

Intermediate Hebrew (Book 2)

Our Intermediate Hebrew students study from Aleph Isn’t Enough by Linda Motzkin. This book continues to empower adults to learn Hebrew, focusing on the Hebrew that they use most frequently: that of the siddur, the Haggadah, and the Bible, featuring additional exercises on which to build solid translation skills. As students solidify their reading ability, they will also enhance their vocabulary, increase their familiarity with roots, and develop their translation skills. With chapters focused on the Hebrew of the Sh’ma, the Amidah, the Torah service, and the Haggadah, this book builds an understanding of the cornerstones of Hebrew grammar. Alternative translations of basic prayers from a wide selection of different prayer books are provided as well.

About the Instructor

Donna GeigerOur Father has given Donna a love for languages. In high school she took Latin I & II, German I & II, and Russian I & II (in a local college). In the college where God led her and where she met her husband, Richard, she took Greek I & II. Then later, having homeschooled her 5 children for 15 years, she took Spanish with several of them. When she became a chaplain at the local woman’s hospital, she decided to get serious with Spanish and audited a semester in college with her youngest daughter. At the hospital there were so many Mexican women who could not speak English, Donna decided to read through the Brit Chadashah (New Testament) in Spanish so that she could talk to them about the Messiah Who loved them. For the past 12 years she has been studying Hebrew formally and informally and is so thankful to our Father for the privilege of learning this beautiful language with all its richness!¬† What a joy to see in the original language the many plays on words that are completely missed when His Word is translated into English! Join us and catch the excitement as He reveals to you His riches through this amazing language!
