HE101 – Beginning BIblical Hebrew I

Teacher: Jonathan Beck


  1. Cook, John A. and Robert D Holmstedt. Beginning Biblical Hebrew: A Grammar and Illustrated Reader. Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2013

Time: TBA (depending on student schedules)

Cost: $200

More Information: Conventionally, online Hebrew courses have been priced at $120 for a course meeting about 12 times during a semester. However, The Hebrew Cafe is offering full-semester courses, hence a slight increase. Schedule will be forthcoming and will depend on students’ schedules. I hope to cover the same amount of material as would a one-semester course at the graduate level, but we’ll see. Schedule of lessons/reading materials is also forthcoming. If you are interested in enrolling in this course, please contact me at and we can proceed to figuring out times that work for everyone.

HE102 – Beginning Biblical Hebrew II

The current HE101 course will be continuing into its second segment. We are taking registrations from those who would like to join. See the announcement page for all relevant information.
