Hebrew Basics – Session 1

Categories: All Posts, Hebrew Basics, Video Teachings

This is session one in our Hebrew Basics series. In this teaching we begin to teach the fundamentals of reading and writing Hebrew. This session covers the nikud (vowel points) called segol, kamatz and patach. It also covers the consonants beit, alef and yud. Hope you find this useful in learning Hebrew. (Approximately 60 minutes)

Please note: slower internet speeds do not make for enjoyable viewing and there is nothing I can do about that. However, if you do have trouble viewing the video, we have provided the teaching below in audio. You might find it more practical to listen to the mp3 file and follow along with the powerpoint.

    Hello is there anything that is written down that i can copy as my eyes arent what they should be and cant really see the vowel points and their differences…

      On each post there is a link for a PDF file underneath the video window. Here it says “Hebrew Basics Session 1 Powerpoint.” If you click on that it will open up the Powerpoints which are much clearer. You can also download the powerpoint to your computer. Shalom.

    If you hold the Ctrl key down and move the wheel up or down on your mouse, it changes the size of what you are looking at. That might help as well.

    Hello, Bill, Are these teachings available on DVD?

    Hi! I am just starting this course and you have given me a better understanding in a few minutes than several Hebrew courses I have started (and quit)!!

    I have a question though. You say that the three dots vowel point says e in red…which is like the short sound for e – eh – but then you say it says more of a long a sound when you are practicing it. Could you please explain this? Thank you so much! 🙂

    • Bill says:

      Michelle. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your question. I was only making reference to how things might sound when our speed picks up. However don’t get bogged down by that observation. The vowel segol should be pronounced as e (eh) unless as you will learn it is followed by the yod. Then it will get the a (ay) sound.
