Your kids are clamoring for screen time anyway!
**We highly recommend the Shalom Hebrew app, available for purchase here. **
Alternatively, the following apps were free downloads last we checked:
- Ma Kore
- Aleph-Bet Schoolhouse
- Alefbet OTG
- Alef Bet HD
- Hebrew Flashcards
- Prayer Player
- Make blessings and tefillah (prayer) part of your family routine. It’s not only a good way to practice Hebrew, it also bring mindfulness to the routines of the day.
- Click here for a colorful chart with the blessings before and after meals and for Friday night.
- The shma is a traditional part of the bedtime routine. It can be found on page 101 of the blue siddur. What a gentle way to tuck-in at night!
- Buy a set of Hebrew flashcards, or a Hebrew placemat. Practice the aleph-bet at meal time. While the ads are running on a video, turn down the volume and run through the aleph-bet. These cards include the vowels. These have the names of the letters written in transliteration on the back.
