Overview

Following the success of Aleph Isn't Tough, this book continues to empower adults to learn Hebrew, focusing on the Hebrew that they use most frequently: that of the siddur, the Haggadah, and the Tanach. While continuing to work toward reading proficiency, Aleph Isn't Enough raises the bar for this second-level course by also focusing on the building of solid translation skills and the acquisition of key vocabulary and roots. With chapters focusing on the Hebrew of the Shema, the Amidah, the Torah service, the Haggadah, and other areas of the siddur, this book builds an understanding of the basic cornerstones of Hebrew grammar. Alternative translations of basic prayers from a wide selection of different prayer books are provided as well, underscoring the challenges of translation. Supplementary material from Jewish texts and tradition enriches the student's experience.
