Publisher's Description

One of the most amazing things about Hebrew is that, in less than a century, it has gone from an ancient language of prayer and ritual spoken by a few holy men to a modern language of sunbathing, dining, going to the movies, and countless other everyday activities, spoken by millions. Modern Hebrew is a beautiful language, but for a native English speaker it can be tough wrapping your tongue around exotic expressions like “Ha’im Ayn Oogiyot?” (“What, no cookies?”). As with any language, the quickest way to master Hebrew basics is to immerse yourself in its sounds and rhythms. The next best thing to six months in Haifa, Hebrew For Dummies lets you do just that!

Whether you want to communicate with your Israeli cousins, understand Jewish prayers and sacred literature, impress your Jewish in-laws, or you’re planning a trip to Israel, this book/audio package can help. In no time, you’ll:

  • Master Hebrew sounds and rhythms
  • Understand basic grammar and usage
  • Get a handle on the Hebrew alphabet
  • Make small-talk, and most everyday transactions
  • Discover the basics of Hebrew blessings and prayer
  • Gain insights into Hebrew culture and traditions

Each chapter of Hebrew For Dummies is organized around a specific set of activities—such as eating, traveling, shopping, and asking directions—and gives you the lowdown on all the Hebrew you’ll need to get by. Topics covered include:

  • Eating, going shopping, having fun, sports, hobbies, talking on the phone, communicating around the office, and other everyday activities
  • Hebrew for travelers, including transportation, hotels, money changing, asking directions, and handling emergencies
  • Sacred Hebrew, including reading the Bible and prayer books, blessing formulas, sacred rites and services, and more

The enclosed audio CD let’s you pick up Hebrew the easy way—through actual conversations. It features:

  • Dialogues by native Hebrew speakers
  • Answers to the Fun & Games activities in the book

The fun, easy way to master basic Hebrew, this book will quickly get you on track with the language skills you need to speak and read Hebrew like a native.

    There are many good books and programs available for learning Hebrew. All of them have some merit, but Hebrew For Dummies presents a great overview and will be used as the primary text in conjunction with other materials I have. The book would be more useful if it also presented the words and phrases in Hebrew characters to clarify spelling and pronunciation. A CD is provided as well. It would be helpful if it contained a searchable glossary in English and Hebrew text. I refrained from buying this text because of it's title - I was impressed with the presentation. Beside that got a great price.
