Resources for the Second Edition (2005)

Kittel2Biblical Hebrew: Text and Workbook, Second Edition, by Bonnie Pedrotti Kittel, Vicki Hoffer, and Rebecca Abts Wright (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2005). Buy from Amazon.caBuy from Amazon.com

This is an easy-to-use inductive introduction to Classical Hebrew. What sets it apart from other beginning Hebrew texts is that grammar and vocabular are introduced in order of their frequency and it employs minimal technical jargon. There is also a Supplement which includes further exercises and detail on the lessons, as well as a three-CD set of readings and songs.

I have used the first edition of Kittel as a textbook for introductory Hebrew classes for a number of years and have just started using the second edition. I have updated my computer Vocabulary Database so it reflects the vocabulary in the second edition of Kittel.

I have used Kittel as a textbook for introductory Hebrew classes for a number of years and have developed a number of resources to be used in conjunction with it, including the Yale Answer Key, an Expanded Answer Key, as well as a computer Vocabulary Database that can be used with Teknia Language Tools.

Published Answer Key

WilliamsTyler Williams, An Answer Key for Biblical Hebrew: A Supplement to the Text and Workbook by Bonnie P. Kittel, Vicki Hoffer, and Rebecca A. Wright (Yale Language Series; Yale, 1996). I have found this Answer Key indispensable, as otherwise you will be spending a lot of time going through exercises in class (that is why I developed it in the first place).

Expanded Answer Key

An Expanded Answer Key for Biblical Hebrew: A Supplement to the Text and Workbook. For reasons beyond my control, my An Answer Key for Biblical Hebrew: A Supplement to the Text and Workbook does not include answers to translation assignments past Lesson 4. While students can check their translations against an English Bible, this often is not adequate. Thus, primarily due to the request of my students, I have decided to provide this expanded answer key to the translation assignments.

Vocabulary Database
