Re: Introduction: Sam

Also, I wasn't aware that you preferred to be called Sam. I certainly don't prefer to be called Jase, although my mom tends to use that name with me. :lol:

Re: Question for Students in Advanced Hebrew

If anything, the threads regarding our weekly assignments. It isn't a big deal, though. Yeah, I was kinda wondering what parts of the discussion we are interested in keeping out of the public eye. Or, should it be enough that the class sessions and associated video recordings are for paid students ...

Re: Introduction: Sam

* I'm a fan of Star Wars & Lord of the Rings, among other things. I'm disappointed that Harry Potter didn't merit a mention there. I'm so happy that Disney took over and expanded Star Wars . The new content that they put out (especially The Mandalorian ) has provided me with such joy. Seeing Sn...

The Ten Commandments for Reading and Memorization

There are two versions of the Ten Commandments in the Bible: in Exodus 20 and in Deuteronomy 5. When I memorized them, I did so from Exodus 20. Here's the text: 1 וַיְדַבֵּ֣ר אֱלֹהִ֔ים אֵ֛ת כָּל־הַדְּבָרִ֥ים הָאֵ֖לֶּה לֵאמֹֽר׃ 2 אָֽנֹכִי֙ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֔יךָ אֲשֶׁ֧ר הֽוֹצֵאתִ֛יךָ מֵאֶ֥רֶץ מִצְרַ֖יִם ...

As you do your compositions...

The heart of the advanced Hebrew course is Jacob Weingreen's Classical Hebrew Composition (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1962). You should all have a copy of the textbook accessible to you at this point, as we begin the course. Weingreen says in his preface: A student's knowledge of a classical language ...
