  • I really would like to learn biblical Hebrew language!!!

  • I wish to study ancient classical Hebrew as found in The Bible. Do you know of any live video chats with teachers? Please pray for me in this endeavor. Shalom! And Shabbat Shalom! God bless you!

    • drbarrick.org offers Biblical Hebrew class. The lessons are found on youtube
      but the textbook and workbook are found on his site

  • Is there a reason we cannot copy this website?

    In 2004, was wounded from a IED attack in 2004. One a puncturing head wound on the left side of my head as well as shrapnel in my eye. For most right handed people, language functions are on the left side of the head. Needless to say, Traumatic Brain Injury has done a lot to me. I really don’t ever complain about this but share as a matter of explanation why I do the things that I do.

    Couple of things, first, am more visual learner. Ease of access is important to me. I do try to bookmark websites but since 2004, think have went to my bookmarks 15-20 times in eighteen years.

    What works for me, copying the contents of one page of a website and then paste it on MS One Note. That just seems the easiest way to “bookmark” the sites I want to refer to again. That means select all, copy, and then paste. It is not if I was copying something that one would have to purchase when the site is on the web and available to anyone and everyone.

    Thanks for making this site, it is a valuable one.

  • I want to start learning biblical hebrew for free immediately. Thanks.
