The third and final book in the Hineni series to learn Hebrew prayer
The third and final book in the Hineni - The New Hebrew Through Prayer series presents the Torah service and concluding prayers. Students will learn the key prayers in the Torah service, concluding prayers in the Shabbat morning service, and prayers for sleeping and waking. It covers 99 key prayer words and over 30 roots, prefixes and suffixes, and also helps students refine their basic grammar skills and hone their prayer-reading skills.
Students are also challenged to think deeply about the meaning of the prayers and the prayers' connection to ancient sources and sacred text. For example: Read each biblical verse below and circle the phrase that appears in the Ein Kamocha prayer.
Additionally, Hineni 3 deepens students' understanding of the Jewish values underlying the prayers. The "Ethical Echo" feature teaches a mitzvah concept, and the follow-up "Think About This!" asks students to make their own meaning from the value.
(Reconstructionist variations of some of these prayers are available here.)
Special feature: Includes a chart with the prayers in the Shabbat morning service to help students understand its structure and to graphically illustrate just how much they have accomplished in their Hebrew studies.
