Many helpful learning exercises are provided, including, picture matching quizzes, fill-in-the blank quizzes, and Hebrew Bible verse and Concordance assignments. Depending on the age and determination of the student(s), the mastering of the material may be accomplished in a forty week school year or less. A good share of the studying is based on inspiring verses from the Tanach (Old Testament) which is very motivating to those who love God's Word and desire to know it better. The hope is that your appetite will be whetted to continue searching the Bible's original Hebrew for more "hidden treasures." From the Foreword by Rabbi Steven J. Weiler of Tampa, FL Recently, God has brought many Jewish people to receive Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah, and He has brought many Christians to once again search for their foundational understanding of Scripture - through Jewish eyes as they realize that Jesus and His disciples were Jewish. One of the miracles that God performed in the late 19th century was the revival of the Hebrew language. This revival has generated a new and great interest in learning Hebrew. Hebrew is not just for Israelis, nor is it only for Bar & Bat Mitzvah students. Hebrew is for all of us who want to know better how to "handle accurately the Word of Truth." Hebrew: Beginning Your Journey, by Mary A. Merritt, is a great way for young and old to start the journey of learning Hebrew. It makes great sense. The pictures are informative and visually inspiring. Tying the Hebrew to the Scriptures is motivating and extremely helpful in "hiding the Word in our hearts." The logical progression in this book makes the learning of Hebrew attainable. You have what you need to step-by-step get to the next level: lesson plans, assignments, quizzes, writing practice - the list goes on and on. This is a journey worth taking. May God bless you and your family as you experience the joys of learning Hebrew.

    Nearly a year ago I took a semester of Hebrew. It was not easy, I spent a lot of time writing the alphabet, listening to and studying vocabulary, and writing Hebrew. Regardless of which text used, I would never suggest that learning Hebrew is easy. But I have discovered this excellent Hebrew primer that I believe can be useful in learning Hebrew without the aid of a teacher. This particular book would be great for families or homeschool learning.

    When I first opened the book I was pleasantly surprised. Reading Hebrew is different than reading English, rather than reading right to left, the Hebrew reader reads from left to right. What the English reader would consider the back cover, the Hebrew reader recognizes as the front cover. This may not be extremely important in the learning process. In fact, my college textbook reads like an English book. But I think that the author of this book demonstrates cleverness and fun by publishing this book in the Hebrew format.

    The purpose behind the making of this book is, very simple, to learn to read in the Hebrew Language. It is hoped that as the student begins to understand Hebrew, he/she will have the appetite whetted to continue searching the Old testaments original Hebrew, as for, hidden treasure, long after he/she has masters the things therein. (p. 1)

    At the beginning of the book you can find the table of contents and purpose of the book. There are forty lesson plans and each plan is detailed for the purpose of clarity. Learning Hebrew is difficult to learn, but the author provides instructions on how to use the book. I believe that the author and editor have done their best to simplify a difficult subject.

    The book is a primer, therefore two pages are dedicated to each letter in the alphabet. One page includes an excellent illustration with a verse at the top or bottom. Within the verse, one word is written in Hebrew and translated into English. This helps the reader to recognize the word in the verse. The second page includes a large example of the letter, the pronunciation and spelling, and an example Hebrew word containing the letter. Below there are eight photos or illustrations and words that depict the respective Hebrew word, each beginning with the appropriate letter represented on each page. The second page includes another verse which additionally includes at least one Hebrew word beside an English word.

    At the conclusion of the alphabet portion of the book you can find the pronunciation guide, vowel stems, and notes for each letter of the alphabet. There are plenty of reading and writing practice pages available (for the alphabet), and I assume that you can copy them if you need extra practice. The quiz portion includes matching and fill in the blank. The assignment portion includes memory verses, pronouns, common expressions and even a Strongs Concordance assignment. Last but not least the answers are provided in the back of the book.

    Learning Hebrew may seem like an impossible task. And I admit it is difficult. But this primer is a great way to get started. You can learn Hebrew yourself, or maybe you can learn Hebrew as a family. For what it is worth, I have enjoyed learning Hebrew.

    I have received a copy of this book from Olive Press in exchange for an honest review. I have given an honest review.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Mary A. Merritt
Submitted: June 17, 2016

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I lived in Upstate New York for my first forty-eight years, married, and moved to Florida, where, after home schooling our eight children, I began to study the Hebrew language.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I had always desired to study the original language and know the Old Testament better, so with books my pastor husband had, I plunged in! As I formed an alphabetized list of vocabulary words, the desire to share with friends became stronger, until the idea came to compact it all into a book, along with pictures and explanations of all I was learning. I was encouraged by a series of Hebrew classes at our local messianic congregation that I was on "the right track."

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I very much hope that other students will be as excited as I was in discovering many blessings from the language of Abraham and Moses! Focusing in on the words of the Tenach, searching and comparing Scripture with Scripture, are wonderful ways to keep God's Word in your heart and memory! The more vocabulary that is learned, the better able you will be to read with understanding, and so the hope is you will keep adding and keep searching, and keep being blessed by God. Another benefit from this study is to learn some modern-day Hebrew which would suit one will if he/she made the trip to Israel. The modern-day language is a revival of the biblical Hebrew, with new words added. What a miracle to have it revived after so many years of being "lost!"

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  The Lord has given me a happiness in studying His Word, a sense of awesome pleasure, satisfying a hunger to know His Word better. There is nothing like it! It has brought me a little closer to heaven, seeing God in all His righteousness and beauty. I am so glad I didn't miss out by NOT studying! The project also brought me to meet wonderful Jewish people and ones who love God's chosen people.
