Free Webinar: How to read and understand Hebrew

Good news — we are planning a free Webinar on the basics of how to read and understand Hebrew, especially Biblical Hebrew.

We plan to discuss the basic structure of Hebrew words, how to extract the root (shoresh) of the word, and then how to add back in the other word components to understand the full meaning of the word.

The webinar is planned for Tuesday, October 27 at 1 PM US Eastern time (7 PM in Israel).

UPDATE: I just got the registration link: I just sent out another message with the registration link.  You can register for the Webinar here:

First Sample Lesson — Feedback welcome!

Awesome news: Here is a sample lesson for our new course. Please give us your feedback in the comments!

And please, please, please answer the Sample Lesson survey. It only takes about 2 minutes and it will really help us to help you.

Some important notes before you begin:

1) There are two versions below. They are identical, but one is Flash and one is a .wmv. Which works better for you?

2) In the actual course the video will probably be split up into 2 or 3 different parts, so one can do just the reading part or just the translation parts by themselves.

3) Some of the intro remarks are for this sample only to give you an idea what we are doing. We will move most/all of the intro stuff into a separate video in the course itself.

4) We are planning on listing selected grammatical points covered in the lessons in a separate video or file for easy review.

Flash-based (like YouTube; can be sped up or slowed down using the cool MySpeed Plugin from


Windows Media format (.wmv):

IMPT: Remember to leave your comments and answer the Sample Lesson survey so we can tailor the course to YOUR needs. 🙂
