    are really impressive. Hebrew has alot of familiar words already. It's reading it that's a killer

    •  Compared to *Hebrew*? (none)

       I wouldn't know where to begin with Hebrew.  No, that's impressive.  Oh, and so's Russian -- for those who actually speak it.

      •  Well (none)
        I like languages especially if you can tell a story. Hebrew is good for that. But like I said I can read it but... when I haven't done it in awhile I have to start out very slowly.

        Where to start- with the alphabet or alefbet (a,b) get it? That part is actually easy, then numbers, just like any other language I guess.

        I must confess though that the first time I worked out Adonai for God it was pretty thrilling. You realize then just how ancient Hebrew is...
