These paperback books, written by author Michael Ben Zehabe, are a wonderful resource for parents and children who are trying to learn Hebrew. As the author points out, Hebrew is a very meaningful language that, like all things related to God, is intricate and full of hidden meanings and lessons. In The Meaning of Hebrew Letters, he explains the numerical value, and the true meaning of each Hebrew letter. Like the scriptures, each Hebrew letter has a depth of meaning to be revealed to us. The Bet-Time Stories are short stories that convey some meanings of the Hebrew letters and words, each with a little twist, somewhat like the familiar Aesop's Fables. The Commentary on Jonah gives an in-depth study of that book of the Bible, and also pulls some of the Hebrew words and meanings into the study. This helps with your language study, but also gives new insight into this book of the Bible.

I think this is a wonderful way to enhance your study of Hebrew. As the author says, instead of memorizing and testing, just absorb it, enjoy it, and soak in the learning. We are certainly enjoying these books, and they have given a new dimension to our study of Hebrew. These are part of a comprehensive Hebrew curriculum, which is called the Jonah Project. There is more information about this on the author's website. I highly recommend that homeschoolers and Bible scholars try these books. I think all will be delighted!
