Beginning Hebrew: First Hebrew Primer 3rd Edition EKS Publishers

Our Price: $32.95

This is the Grammar we use in the Hebrew Classes offered at TorahResource.
The First Hebrew Primer is a simple, straightforward guide to Biblical Hebrew. Thirty lessons provide enough information and practice to enable you, with the aid of a Hebrew-English dictionary, to understand most biblical texts. The goal of the Primer is to teach students to read and understand Biblical Hebrew as quickly as possible; therefore, the lessons emphasize recognition and translation - not memorization. The thirty lessons incorporate: * Verb, grammar, and spelling charts * Vocabulary lists * Oral reviews * Exercises * Stories * Biblical quotes * Book of Ruth

This revised third edition introduces several new terms and clarifies grammatical points, but will look the same to long-time Primer readers. The key change we have made is the inclusion of new explanatory endnotes. Many readers have expressed a desire to deepen their knowledge of Biblical Hebrew, but have unanimously endorsed the clear, uncomplicated tone of the Primer. We have responded by adding these optional supplementary notes. Students may read the notes to enrich their understanding of Hebrew grammar or concentrate solely on the main text. Either way, the Primer provides a sound foundation for more advanced studies in the Hebrew Bible.

Hebrew Primer January 6, 2016
Reviewer: Joan Ashmore from Comox, BC Canada  
I've skimmed through and am excited to start working through it. It looks great, very thorough.  I was just looking for a leg up before enrolling in the actual course.

great hebrew intro December 8, 2015
Reviewer: Daniel Clayton from Bonney Lake, WA United States  
Very good intro to Hebrew for those who don't even know the aleph-bet. I have only worked thru a few chapters but I already can begin to understand a few things in hebrew. I feel like I am about to make a breakthru in my understanding.

First Hebrew Primer – 3rd Edition – EKS Publishers November 2, 2015
Reviewer: Joseph Sanchez, Ph.D from Sweet Home, OR United States  
This is an awesome course. After 4 weeks of hard study, I am already using my Hebrew skills in studying the Tanakh and Siddur for service and prayer.

I took Greek in Seminary many years ago but this course is easy to understand and complete.

I am 60 years olds and you are never too old to learn and study G-d's word.

Remember what Paul says in 2 Timothy 2:15 Make every effort to present yourself before G-d as tried and true, as an unashamed worker cutting a straight path with the word of truth.

Thanks Tim and Torah Resource for making this Hebrew course simple and easy to understand.

If you want to learn Hebrew, you need all three products to do this course correctly.

Have fun and learn..... If you really apply yourself and study , you will be using the Hebrew before you know it....
