About Hebrew with Tikva™
Hebrew with Tikva™ is a methodical curriculum that helps you speak, read, and write Hebrew with ease. It is specifically developed for students who want to master Hebrew – weather it is speaking in a modern conversation, reading literature, or understanding and analyzing prayer book or biblical texts.
In addition, the program is complimented by spiritually uplifting insights. Intriguing historical and cultural knowledge is woven into the lessons. Students gain an appreciation and enjoy learning while discovering the depth of the Hebrew language.
The Herbrew with Tikva™ learning resources provide opportunities for all types of students to learn in an easy access environment. The program can be used as a standalone start-to-finish program, or to help students fill in academic gaps at their local Hebrew school. The Hebrew with Tikva™ cirriculum is appropriate for all ages to learn both modern conversational Hebrew as well as biblical/prayerbook Hebrew.
We wish to provide our students with a lifelong love of the Hebrew language and to extend the Hebrew learning community.
