Hebrew Nuggets, Lesson 22: Israel (Part 4)

Articles 1 Comment

Final part of a four-part series on the Hebrew word Israel.

Revised: 2-Oct.-2015
In the first syllable of the word יִשְׂרָאֵל (yis·ra·’EL) we met a new vowel sign—ḥi·RIK. We also met for the first time a silent she·VA’. There are no new elements to learn in the second and third syllables of יִשְׂרָאֵל, but we will review the letters and vowels contained in these two syllables.

Hebrew NuggetsThe third letter in יִשְׂרָאֵל is resh, the Hebrew “r” sound. We learned this letter in Lesson 14. Under the resh is a ka·MATS, one of the two “a” sounds we have learned.
