Hebrew Beginnings (5th-12th)

Teacher: Elizabeth Fisher

Description:Hebrew Beginnings is a Hebrew introductory course focusing on the Hebrew Aleph-Bet, the use of Hebrew words in Scripture, and the Hebrew Names of God. In this class, we will study the Hebrew alphabet, its origins, and the meanings behind each letter. We will use two websites for reference: hebrew4christians.com and blueletterbible.org.

On certain days, the students will receive one or two homemade butter cookies imprinted with the letter we’re studying that day. Each semester, students will be provided with a calligraphy pen, a textbook, a workbook, and worksheets. Occasionally, we will study a Jewish holiday and enjoy at least one food incorporated in its celebration. Please inform me of any food allergies your child may experience.

Our study will include: the Hebrew alphabet, including pictograms and numbers; the Hebrew forms of several of the Names of God; typologies of Jesus found in the Old Testament; instruction in using blueletterbible.org to study the Bible, specifically how to find the Hebrew words and roots from which the text in the Old Testament has been translated into English; instruction in using hebrew4christians.com to study Hebrew and to learn more about the history and meaning of Hebrew letters and words.

This class is 16 weeks long each semester; however, the Hebrew alphabet will be taught during the 12-week section of each semester; during the additional four weeks, we will be studying the Hebrew calendar and its seven major holidays. If you are enrolling a younger child who has only 12-week classes, he or she is welcome to attend this class during only the 12-week sections.
