My students can expect to begin with the alphabet, and then building upon the vowels, grammar, and vocabulary. I will teach from three texts, the Torah, "A Grammar For Biblical Hebrew" by Seow, and an "Introduction to Hebrew" by John Parsons from Zola Levitt Ministries.

Are you looking for help with Hebrew homework at school or university? Are you going to Israel and would like to be able to speak with people there? Perhaps your child doesn't have time for Hebrew school, but you'd still like him/her to learn? I can help! I teach adults and children, Jewish or not. I am gentle and patient, and I make sure my lessons are fun and entertaining. Connections are made between various subjects, we sing songs, watch relevant film clips, and tell stories. Bar and bat mitzvah prep is also available. I enunciate all words very clearly, making it easy to learn by imitation.

I am an Orthodox Rabbi who worked in Jewish education for 10 years. I have tutored in Biblical Hebrew, Tanach, and rabbinic texts for close to 20 years. My goal as a teacher is to give my students a strong foundation that will allow the student to develop both fluency and independence in their studies. Though I provide many of the materials, Biblical Hebrew lessons will be based on "The First Hebrew Primer." For more experienced students, I can assist in the study of the weekly Torah portion, or any other Biblical or rabbinic text desired. I look forward to working with you!

Hebrew Lessons

Enter a world of rich, ancient history by learning Hebrew! Hebrew is one of the oldest languages still in modern use. There are written texts dated to 1000 BCE, with some evidence of a spoken language dating back to 5000 BCE! This long history and continued relevance make Hebrew lessons a rewarding, useful investment.

Hebrew is famously the language of religious texts, but it is also a living language spoken by over 9 million people today. We have Hebrew teachers versed in both ancient and modern forms of the language, so regardless of your goals, we can help you.

Our listings include reviews, certifications, and prices, so you can choose a Hebrew teacher who matches your interests and style of learning.

FAQ

Is Hebrew easy to learn?

arrow

Many would argue that Hebrew is one of the easier Semitic languages to learn, but it can be fairly challenging for English speakers. It uses a different alphabet than English, and it’s read right to left and does not include vowels. As these features are different, they can challenge some English-speaking students. However, there aren’t many characters to learn (only 22), and there are very few irregularities to master. It is a logical language, making it easier to learn.

Working with a one-on-one tutor can help you master any challenges you experience. The wealth of historical, religious, and modern texts available in Hebrew make it a worthwhile, meaningful language to learn.

What is the best way to learn Hebrew?

arrow

As with any language, the best way to learn Hebrew is exposure and immersion. Watching and listening to Israeli media (television, movies, radio) is an excellent way to hear and see modern Hebrew. In addition, speaking with and learning from an individual Hebrew teacher allows you to master elements you may not pick up from the modern spoken language and can help you read and write Hebrew with increasing ease.

Listening to modern speakers will also help ancient Hebrew learners, providing context and cultural immediacy to accompany more academic study. Hebrew has a very long, living history, and making connections between the past and present will help you understand how the language rules, vocabulary, and pronunciation have evolved over time.

How many years does it take to be fluent in Hebrew?

arrow

Fluency can mean many different things. The Foreign Service Institute states that Hebrew can be learned in 44 weeks (11,000 hours), but there are many elements that factor into fluency. Natural aptitude and effort, quality of instruction, and the ability to immerse yourself in the language all affect your ability to speak and read Hebrew.

In addition, it will depend on whether you are learning modern or ancient Hebrew. There are many reasons to learn Hebrew, from conversational needs to exclusively academic reading skills, and fluency with these skills will take differing amounts of time. Regardless of the time it takes, learning Hebrew is a rewarding, engaging experience with many benefits.
