Every participant in the Miller Program learns some basic Hebrew. You’ll learn to read Hebrew so that you can walk into any synagogue, seder table, or falafel joint in the world and feel at home. Whether you were a pro chanting haftarah at your Bar Mitzvah or you don’t know an Aleph from a Bet, we can help you polish and develop your skills.
In our classes we use the excellent Hebrew textbook, “Aleph Isn’t Tough: An Introduction to Hebrew For Adults” by Linda Motzkin (URJ Press, 2000). Below are recordings from each chapter, to allow you to review each lesson at your own pace.
In addition to these recordings, we have created a few videos to help you master the skills from the first few chapters of Aleph Isn't Tough. Check them out below:
