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.
We have developed a YouTube
companion to our Hebrew textbook, “Aleph
Isn’t Tough: An Introduction to Hebrew For Adults” by Linda Motzkin (URJ
In addition to these resources,
here are iPhone and iPad apps to help you learn the Aleph Bet: iWrite
Hebrew, Aleph Bet Pile Up, Aleph Bet Bullseye, AlphaBet Hebrew, Aleph Bet - Learn the Hebrew Alphabet for Kids, Hebrew Land of Shenanigans, AlephBet App HD and Hebrew Tots.
If you are interested in
becoming more familiar with the Hebrew prayers, visit Siddur Audio, which closely follows the
Conservative Movement’s prayer book, Siddur Sim Shalom.
