Today I launched a new website:
The Hebrew Language
The Hebrew Language website is a collection of free Internet resources to learn Hebrew. All selections were hand picked by me.
If you search on the word "Hebrew" in Google, you will get over 90 million results. I spent many hours compiling the Hebrew Language website but I did not go through all 90 million sites. If you find a site that has good content and it is free, please send me the site address and I will consider adding it. Please do not send me sites that have more ads than content. Thanks.
Your feedback / comments about the new site are welcome.

Passover is a Jewish holiday, of Biblical origin, marking the birth of the Jews as a people and their emergence as a unique nation in history, devoted to G-d's will. It celebrates the liberation of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt over 3000 years ago, under the leadership of Moses.
This year Passover begins on Monday night, March 29, 2010.
The Jewish Trivia Quiz
In what Hebrew month is Passover celebrated ?
Why do we eat matzah during Passover ?
How old was Moshe's mother when she gave birth to Moshe ?
How long did the Jews' exile in Egypt last ?
