Hebrew 1 is an introductory course to Biblical Hebrew as used in the Old Testament. In Hebrew 1, students will acquire the necessary skills to begin to read Hebrew in their own Hebrew Bibles. The course is designed to give an introductory look at the vocabulary, reading comprehension, writing, and cultural knowledge needed to read the Hebrew Scriptures on their own. By the end of the course, students will be able to read selected verses and texts from the Old Testament in their original language. Beyond an introductory knowledge of Hebrew, students will have an appreciation for the Old Testament and the cultural context in which it was written.
Note: We will add a course each year, starting with Hebrew 1. Our plan is to add Hebrew 2 next year, culminating with AP Hebrew in future years.
