What do you use when you are bored with standard Hebrew workbooks and exercises? Aaron Frankel and his Hebrew school students designed the ideal Hebrew workbook for the intermediate grades. A Jerusalem Mystery is an interactive, full-color activity book for grades 7-9, in which students learn Hebrew while "touring" Jerusalem and solving a mystery.
Students learn about Jerusalem's ancient and modern landmarks and holy places by translating and following clues. Along the way, word games and short exercises tutor students in simple written Hebrew and the basics of Hebrew grammar: pronouns and prepositions, verb roots, and the present tense. A Jerusalem Mystery is an easy-to-use, fun-filled workbook that will fascinate even the most inattentive students. It includes a special vocabulary card and a map of Jerusalem.
