Learning to write the Hebrew Alphabet
Learning to write the consonants of the Hebrew alphabet is quite easy.
When we read the Hebrew printed in texts the letters are formed using the PRINT form. Hand written Hebrew uses either BLOCK script or CURSIVE script. The CURSIVE form of the letters is the preferred medium of the Modern Hebrew writer since if flows easily as handwriting. When your Hebrew is a little more advanced and you study in Israel [perhaps!] you will find that your teachers will use the cursive form of written Hebrew since it is much easier and faster to write that the print form. This web site will teach you how to read PRINT Hebrew and write using the CURSIVE form. You will also become familiar with the BLOCK letters. [Modern Hebrew uses the PRINT form in printed materials, books, web pages etc., while all handwritten material is cursive.]
