I have launched a new website called:
My English Hebrew Dictionary
My English Hebrew Dictionary is a free on-line educational site, which can help one to learn Hebrew vocabulary in an easy manner. Each Hebrew word has vowels, as well as an English transliteration. The Hebrew words are displayed as graphics. This means you don't need special fonts to view them. The dictionary is organized by subjects, ranging from animals to weather. The site includes 150+ printable study sheets. There will be additional subjects added in the near future.
Feedback is welcome.
Please forward this message to anyone that may be interested in learning Hebrew. Social media buttons are on each page to enable you to share this site with friends. Thanks!
