From the Foreword by Rabbi Steven J. Weiler of Tampa, FL:
Recently, God has brought many Jewish people to receive Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah, and He has brought many Christians to once again search for their foundational understanding of Scripture - through Jewish eyes as they realize that Jesus and His disciples were Jewish.
One of the miracles that God performed in the late 19th century was the revival of the Hebrew language. This revival has generated a new and great interest in learning Hebrew. Hebrew is not just for Israelis, nor is it only for Bar & Bat Mitzvah students. Hebrew is for all of us who want to know better how to "handle accurately the Word of Truth."
Hebrew: Beginning Your Journey, by Mary A. Merritt, is a great way for young and old to start the journey of learning Hebrew. It makes great sense. The pictures are informative and visually inspiring. Tying the Hebrew to the Scriptures is motivating and extremely helpful in "hiding the Word in our hearts."
The logical progression in this book makes the learning of Hebrew attainable. You have what you need to step-by-step get to the next level: lesson plans, assignments, quizzes, writing practice - the list goes on and on.
This is a journey worth taking. May God bless you and your family as you experience the joys of learning Hebrew.
