I want to teach my son Hebrew. Know where I can learn it without having to pay an arm and a leg and my first born child?

We read the bible together. Since it was written in the jewish culture and language, we thought we'd have a better understanding of some of the words and their meanings if we knew the language of the time Hebrew/Greek. I've looked at groups located in Jerusalem. But they want hundreds of dollars. We are a low income family. Any advice?

  • I saw some books at the book store just the other day (go to Language section) about learning Hebrew. They weren't very much.

  • keeping in mind there's no where for him to use it shy of becoming a rabbi, so he's likely to forget if he doesn't use it regularly. Is it worth the investment of time if he's forgotten everything 20+ yrs from now?
