Hebrew Jokes and Riddles with English translations

Hi Everyone!

I have a website called:
Hebrew Jokes - Learn Hebrew and Laugh
http://www.hebrew-jokes.com

Each joke / riddle is displayed in Hebrew with Nikud, and there
is an English translation of the joke.
The jokes are suitable for all ages.

The bilingual menus allow you to browse through the jokes,
choose a specific topic or click on the random button for a joke.
If you do not have time to read all the jokes at once, when you
return to the site you can continue where you left off (next joke number).

The system, also, has a joke basket where you can add your
favorite jokes and then print them out.

Reading jokes in Hebrew can be a fun activity in your ulpan or
Hebrew class. Even native Hebrew speakers will find jokes that
are worth telling their friends.

Enjoy!

Please share. Thank you!

Have a good day,
Jacob

Educational resources about Chanukah and over 750 Chanukah videos


Hi Everyone!

Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, is observed for
eight days, beginning on the evening of the 25th day of
the Hebrew month of Kislev. This year Chanukah starts
Sunday night, December 2, 2018.

Chanukah is a wonderful holiday of renewed dedication,
faith, hope and spiritual light. It's a holiday that says:
"Never lose hope." Chanukah commemorates the victory of a
small band of Maccabees over the pagan Syrian-Greeks who
ruled over Israel.

The Chanukah Page includes lesson sites in several languages, videos, songs, Chanukah trivia quiz, English Hebrew vocabulary lists, recipes, games, humor, photos, clipart, coloring pages and a map of the sites of the Maccabees 166-161 BCE.

The address is:

The Chanukah Video Page has links to over 750
cool Chanukah videos:

The video page will be updated as we get closer to Chanukah.
Suggestions for new video additions are welcome.

Enjoy!

Please share these holiday resources. Thank You!

Shavua Tov!
Have a good week!
