Special Notes

One of the most versatile tools we can provide our students to help them foster a connection to Judaism is the ability to decode (read) Hebrew words.  Above each packet are the Hebrew letters and vowels introduced within that packet. Letters and vowels are reinforced through the remaining packets once they are introduced.  Thank you to Rae Antonoff for teaming with us in this endeavor with the Hebrew Step-By-Step program.  While some of the activities are in theory meant for writing, we recommend that while accessing this material with a screen that you use this program for reading.  Your teacher(s) can send you the PDF's via email or printout for the writing exercises.
