I’m a non-religious person with a general interest in religion. That extends to Judaism as well, but a big obstacle is the fact that so many discussions involve a lot of non-English (Hebrew and Yiddish) vocabulary. I’ve picked up a little bit, but I think I’d rather study it systematically than Google every word I see in context. I know Duolingo has a Hebrew course, but I don’t really care to learn sentences like “David ate an apple,” just words specifically relevant to Judaism. It would also be great if there were a way to learn to read Hebrew. I’d be willing to pay a little bit for this if necessary. Any good options?
How can I learn some Jewish vocabulary?
