Shirei Ha-Shabbat

We are proud to announce the release of our NEWEST product:

Shirei Ha-Shabbat?!

“Songs of The Shabbat”

Multi-media Format to Easy Learning

17 Songs from traditional Jewish Liturgy have been combined into one program. You can now learn the basics of Liturgy from the Friday evening Qabbalat Shabbat service to the Shabbat morning Shachrit service to the close of the Shabbat with the Havdalah service. Later, plans to introduce other Songs from the Liturgy which will give you a fuller appreciation of the spiritual meaning of the Shabbat Day.

The format for Shirei Ha-Shabbat is multi-media: using Audio and Visual techniques with games, quizzes, and matching exercises to augment the learning experience.

Multi-media Features Will Have You Canting Liturgy

As mentioned above, Shirei Ha-Shabbat uses a multi-media approach to aid the instruction process. Each Song appears in Hebrew characters with the vowel points already activated. Also, we have incorporated different features to ensure that you learn the Song as it is ?canted? (or sung) by the Cantor.

One of these new features allows you to point your cursor at a Hebrew word and instantly a pop-up box appears with the transliterated pronunciation of the word with the English translation and its grammatical use. If you click on the word, you will hear the Hebrew pronunciation of the word, but this is not all?at the beginning of each line, you will find two buttons, one reveals an English translation of the line, the other one sings the line (in the voices of one of our cantors).

Also, we have developed a new function called Canted Song. This function allows you to hear the entire Song Canted in Hebrew in either the Ashkenazi or the Sephardi tradition.

One feature, called Auto-speak, allows you to hear the pronunciation of all the words of the Song, one-by-one, at various speed intervals. As you progress through the program, another feature will allow you to turn-off the vowel points for each story. This will give you practice reading Hebrew without the use of vowel points, which is very valuable, as most Hebrew publications are written without vowel points. All Israeli children start to learn to read without vowels by the third or fourth grade.

The key concept for learning Hebrew (or any language) in Shirei Ha-Shabbat is carefully timed Repetition. To re-enforce this concept, we have added games, quizzes, and matching exercises.

All of our features are geared around the audio-visual format. One of our games is loosely based on the old television game show ?Concentration.? The game is one of memory skill: the object is to find two occurrences of the same Hebrew word or the English translation of that word.

We use quizzes and good old-fashioned matching exercises to help you learn Hebrew. To make sure you are actually learning and not just memorizing the pattern of the presented material, the Shirei Ha-Shabbat program mixes the sequence of each question and answer: no two quizzes or matching exercises will be presented in the same sequence.

We recommend listening to the Songs to hear the Cantor sing the words. You may listen to any Song on the menu in any order. Ii it is better to listen and hear the Songs before seeing them and trying to read them. Listening/Speaking Hebrew is an entirely different skill set than reading Hebrew. Other than the above recommendations, feel free to skip around between the different exercises.

Here’s What Some Of Our Customers Have To Say About “At Home With Hebrew.”

I purchased the ?At Home With Hebrew? to supplement a seminary class I was taking and found ?At Home With Hebrew? was an excellent resource that really made my learning go a lot easier as I matched it with the materials that were provided in seminary. Thanks Neal for a great product!
– Chris K. ?

I have LOVED ‘At Home With Hebrew’. My children and I are using it to learn Lashon Hakodesh (The Holy Language). It has been a great blessing to us. Thank you for making it available. We were so excited recently while watching an episode of ‘Little House on the Prairie ‘ when Nellie’s father-in-law recited the blessing in Ivreet, we understood what he was saying, all because of your program. We are really learning with it.
– The Damas Family ?

My job requires that I travel frequently, I bid to get Saturdays off so I can attend shul, but I am not always successful in doing so. We have Hebrew classes offered during the week but I am usually out of town working at that time so as to worship with the congregation on Saturdays. I purchased the “At Home with Hebrew? class after searching for it on the web, it is interactive and well designed, perfect for people in a situation like my own that makes regular attendance at Hebrew classes during the week difficult. A good feature is you can always review whatever you like when it is convenient. I am pleased with the purchase I made.
– George S. ?

I am very impressed with “At Home with Hebrew”. I’ve tried software programs in the past and found they avoided use of the character set, relying primarily on transliterations. “At Home with Hebrew” uses the Hebrew alphabet from the start, using transliterations only as an additional aid to reading and speaking using the Hebrew alphabet. I enjoy and look forward to my daily studies in “At Home with Hebrew”.
– Ron A. ?

I really do like the product and use it with my two kids. I looked at the software for over a year before I finally made up my mind. Keep up the good work!
– Mike P. ?

I?m extremely happy with ?At Home With Hebrew!? It?s easy to navigate and easy on the eyes, and it?s ready to go whenever I?m ready to learn; so, thank you very much.
– Victoria L. ?

I would highly recommend studying Hebrew in this fashion to ANYONE who wishes to go deeper in the word of God and gain intimacy with our Lord. Knowing Hebrew opens insight and understanding like never before to the scriptures. We must never forget that treasure is never on the surface, but is hidden and we must dig and search it out, when it is found, it is truly a treasure. This is what knowing the Hebrew language does for an individual. This is a wonderful teaching for small groups, individuals, Sunday school, bible studies, youth groups, the possibilities are ENDLESS!! It is a beautiful and poetic language that is the language of God himself. What a wonderful treasure!!
