Hebrew

Are you Jewish but don't know a singal word in Hebrew?
Do you here Hebrew names in the news but don't how to pronunciate them?
Do you just want to talk in the language of Abraham, Moses and Jesus?
Well, this is the thread you're looking for, and I'm here to help!

We will start with greetings:
Shalom - Hello
Ma nishma? - How do you do?
Tov, toda - Good, thanks
Hakol besseder? - How's everything?

Re: Hebrew

Oooh, I want to talk in Hebrew!
Shalom, Israeli_Wizard. Lamadity b'yerushalayim l'shnatayim. Ani rotza b'kol halev linsoa l'aretz od pa'am (oh harbeh pa'amim ). Haim ata gar b'aretz? Eifo?

Don't mind me if my grammar is totally off... I wish I had a Hebrew keyboard, it's weird typing in Hebrew with the wrong alphabet.

Re: Hebrew

Jedi_Girl, I don't blame you for giving up on Hebrew. There's a saing here that goes: Ivrit safa kasha (Hebrew is a tough language)

Rell, yesh lach ivrit tova! ani be'emet meha'aretz, ani gar b'Kfar Sava.

Now, numbers one to ten:
1 - Ahat
2 - Shtaim
3 - Shalosh
4 - Arba
5 - Hamesh
6 - Shesh
7 - Sheva
8 - Shmone'
9 - Tesha
10 - Eser

Not to mention, the guy that was teaching me, sorta stopped Plus I didn't know how to say anything, although Hebrew does sound really pretty, if you do listen to it.

Re: Hebrew

Yay Hebrew! I know little conversational Hebrew other than a few things that stuck from religious school, but I can still recite some things from my Bar Mitzvah. Solet mincha b'lulah vashemen! Re'ach nicho'ach l'adonai (that one is "an odor pleasing to the Lord)! V'et p'at negev, alpayim b'amah. V'et p'at yam, alpayim b'amah.

Re: Hebrew

Shalom! I can read, write, and speak Hebrew but I can't understand almost any of it. I sadly never learned conversational hebrew in religious school. >.<

Re: Hebrew

Today, we will learn the Hebrew names of the days of the week (by Jewish order):
Sunday - Rishon (meanning first)
Monday - Sheni (second)
Tuesday - Shlishi (third)
Wendsday - Revi'i (fourth)
Thursday - Chamishi (fifth)
Friday - Shishi (sixth)
Saturday - Shabat (outer-Israely Jews call it Sabath; it means rest, because god created the world in six days, and on the seventh he stoped working and rest)

Re: Hebrew

Note 1: If you see an English spelled word with a * it means that part of the word is pronounced like the English spelling I used.
Note 2: A "ch" is a sound you need to pronounce with the throat, which doesn't really translate into an English character, the closest it would be is to an "h" sound.

From what I still remember...

An-nee medabair kesat Ivrit = I speak a little Hebrew

Shal-lom = Hello, Goodbye, or Peace

Biv-a-ka-sha = Please
Toe*-dah Ra-bah = Thank You Very Much
Slee-cha = Sorry
Um-mar = Say

Cane* = Yes
Low* = No

Ha-Shame* Shell*-li = My Name Is
Yay-sh Li = I have
An-nee low* yo*-day*-a cloom = I don't know anything

la-shun* ha-rah = Wicked Slander

Mah Zeh? = What's this?
Me?* = Who?
Ay-fo? = Where?
Lum-ma? = Why?

Cool* = All
Av-val = But
Veh-[attaches to another word] = And
Gum* = Also

Har-bay* = A lot
Ke-sut = A little

Eve*-reet (spelled Ivrit) = Hebrew
Ung-leet = English

Ear*-ets (spelled erezt) Yesrael = Land of Israel
Ha-Shem = God (non offensive to religious Jews)
da-gel = Flag

Ya-rook* = Green
Ca-Chol = Blue
Sa-hov = Yellow
A-dom = Red
Ka-tom = Orange
La-vun = White
Sha-Core* = Black
Za-hav = Gold

An-nee = I
uh*-tah = You (mas. Singular)
uh-t = You (fem. Singular)
Who* = He
He* = She
A-nuch-new* = We
A-tem = You (mas. Plural)
A-ten = You (fem. Plural)
Hem = They (mas.)
Hen* = They (fem. Only used when everyone referred to is female)

I'm from Canada and my family calls it "Shabbat" and so did everyone who went to elementary school.

Quote:
Hakol besseder? - How's everything?
I thought that means "is everything alright?"
Similar phrase, not sure if I'm even right, but if you split the words up they can be confusing to someone who's trying to learn.

If you want me to change the spelling/grammar of any of the hebrew definitions I listed (for consistency/simplicity) let me know and I will edit this post.

Re: Hebrew

Now we'll learn how tp pronounciate Hebrew names in the news:
Ehud Olmert (Israely Prime-Minister) - Eh-Hood All-Mert
Ehud Barak (Minister of Security) - Eh-Hood Ba-Rak
Gabi Ashkenazi (Head of the Israely Army) - Ga-Bi Ash-Ke-Na-Zi (and not Nazi)
Tzipi Livni ([female] Minister of Outerstates Business) - Tzi-Pi Liv-Knee

If you have problem pronounciate other Israely names, just reply, and I'll reply.

Re: Hebrew

Hi. I would love to learn Hebrew, but I can't take any classes for various reasons. I've learned a little bit about the Hebrew alphabet already. Does anyone have suggestions for good websites and/or books to help me learn?
