Intermediate Biblical Hebrew Stories
Thurs. 5pm Eastern
This class will provide experience with reading extended narratives that use authentic Biblical language. We will read a combination of simplified Bible passages and familiar folktales written in Biblical Hebrew. Students should already have some knowledge of Hebrew (Biblical or Modern), but we will explain specific features of Biblical Hebrew as we go along. We will focus on enjoying the stories, with grammar discussion kept to the minimum needed for comprehension. Home preparation (rereading the texts) is expected between sessions.
Level: This course is intended for those who can read Hebrew and are familiar with a number of high-frequency Biblical Hebrew words.
Textbook: The First Hebrew Primer (Simon, Resnikoff, and Motzkin)
Sections capped at: 5 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
