Hello everyone, I hope you are well. I would appreciate anybody’s tips on improving Hebrew for religious purposes.
I grew up reform but after becoming involved with Chabad on campus I’ve become more observant. I re-learned Hebrew and can Daven the three services in Hebrew.
Although I know the meaning of a decent amount of Hebrew words, I find it difficult to understand the meaning as I work through the prayers. Also, reading through the Tanach, Talmud, and commentaries in English is great, but they loose their essence. Finally, I find myself stuttering to get through some sections at times.
I understand it’s ultimately about practice, but any books, services, or general advice would be appreciated greatly, especially if you did not grow up with or forgot Hebrew. I would also like to learn modern Hebrew to teach it to my children one day BzH, but that is separate discussion.
Thanks for your help in advance.
