to Read Hebrew," a Book of Exercises
This book is arranged to guide the student through the process of learning to read Hebrew by a series of specific steps. It does not teach grammar or comprehension, which are a much different project. Any use of Hebrew for reading requires the skills demonstrated here.
Ideally, this will be used in conjunction with a teacher, or using online tutorial material. The intent of this book is to present the letters in a large, un-crowded and clear font, and to provide exercises in the form of visual mnemonic devices. By the end, you will be able to read the short “Modeh Ani,” meditation, and Psalm 23 and Psalm 121.
The book comes in two sizes:
Both versions have the same, large, clear fonts that are easy on the eyes and easy to learn from. The larger version includes a chart of the trup for reading the haftarah. Screen shots of the pages are shown below.
Again, because the book opens from the left, like all Hebrew books, the Blurb preview will seem to be "upside down," but you can still see the detail and then just flip the book over when it's in your hands.
Here is the series of Hebrew-learning videos I've created that go with the books.
