I am in the process of converting to Judaism and have been trying very unsuccessfully to learn Hebrew. There is no adult Hebrew classes in my area. The Rabbi I am working with for conversion suggested that I purchase this book. The book covers all the important words pertaining to a Jewish spiritual life, and this will have to suffice for me until I can find an Hebrew teacher. The vocabulary is very extensive.

Fascinating. I'm still trying to figure out how something so simple can be so deeply important.
