Hineni 1 - Teacher's Edition
Help learners unlock the meaning and underlying value of our pryaers while building Hebrew reading and liturgical skills.
This full-color three-year prayer series covers the Shabbat morning service in its exact order; prayers, blessings, and songs for home observance of Shabbat and the holidays; and selections from the Friday Night Service and Hallel.
Variations in liturgy for Reform and Conservative services are included. Reconstructionist variations are available here.
Students will learn to read fluently from the siddur, translate key prayer words, identify important Hebrew roots, prefixes,a nd suffixes, connect the prayers with Jewish values, understand the themes of the prayers, place the prayers in the sequence of the service, and participate more comfortably in synagogue services.
