Hebrew Voices #89 – Hebrew Homeschooling

In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Hebrew Homeschooling, Nehemia Gordon speaks with Katie and Lydia Hirn, who are developing a Torah-based homeschool curriculum. Nehemia answers some of their burning questions about how to pronounce Hebrew and explains why some people say “shabbat” and others “shabbos”, where to put the emphasis on a Hebrew word, and the importance of being consistent in whichever Hebrew dialect you choose to use.

I look forward to reading your comments!

  1. I am so thankful for Nehemiah and am excited to learn more about the Kirns’ Torah based homeschool curriculum! I can’t find their website. Please post a link.
    Thank you.

  2. Shalom
    Nehemia this has been such a blessing for so many reasons, both hearing from the Hirn family BUT also hearing your guidance on speaking hebrew alongside modern hebrew. Just so good.
    Thank you

  3. Shalom, kudos, ditto and Amen to Katie and Lydia! …and I grew up in Michiana, too. Sometimes I describe myself as a First Century Fundamentalist (Christian), Torah Observant, etc. So, why would I listen to Nehemia? I’m a seeker of Truth, and he has shared a ton of that over the years. I’m sure he keeps Torah a lot better than I do, and perhaps unwittingly, Nehemia is actually doing what Yeshua said to do a lot better than someone who professes to be a follower of Yeshua actually does! Keep up the good work one and all. Blessings from YeHoVaH!

  4. I have been listening to and supporting Nehemia’s ministry for some time now. I have learned a lot and like his academic approach. However, My husband cannot fathom how I support this Torah based minister but disagree with almost everything Nehemia says about politics or political events. Easy.. I’m a seeker of truth and he has information from his studies which allows me understand Torah. The rest is secondary.

  5. Shalom,

    How can one listen to someone who does not believe in or follow Yeshua? (Jesus) Simple. Truth is TRUTH, no matter who speaks the words that cause the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) to open one’s mind to understanding what has been written. Keep up the good work Nehemia. Be blessed.

  6. Praise and joyful thanks be to YHWH, for He has Gifted you Nehemia with the ability to both know and recognize with discernment, the more difficult issues that contain both the speck and the beam.
    And is not maturity of age not enhanced even swifter with this gifted ability, and by applying this gift in the continued practice of sincere searching and wrestling with the understanding of His Torah.
    May your mind, heart, and soul remain open and full of HIS discernment and understanding.
    Thank you for this podcast and enriching our opportunities for learning from ALL interfaith beliefs, about their understanding or (mis)understandings of the Torah and YHWH.
