Real World Hebrew: Throwback to 1904 Posted by on Apr 26, 2013 in Cultural Awareness, Learning Hebrew, Literature, Real World

We are going back in time when this book was published in Warsaw, Poland. This is a Hebrew primer intended for use after learning the alef-bet. It contains over 200 detailed illustrations, stories with review questions and a color chart. The pictures here are based on the copy currently housed at Yeshiva University Museum in New York City, USA


Here is the text from the cover:
הַדִּבּוּר הָעִבְרִי
סֵפֶר לִמוּד שְׂפַת עֵבֶר עַל פִּי הַשִׁטָה הַטִבעִית
(הָרִאשוֹן אַחַר הָאָלֶף־בֵּית)

Then, breaking it down into the vocabulary:

אַחַר – after
אָלֶף־בֵּית – alef-bet
דִּבּוּר – speech
טִבעִית – natural
סֵפֶר לִמוּד – textbook
עִבְרִי – Hebrew
עַל פִּי – according to
רִאשוֹן – best
שִׁטָה – the method
שְׂפַת – language
