Tav Is For Torah picks up where Bet Is For B'reishit leaves off. In this fourth book in Linda Motzkin's Hebrew for Adults series, students will put all the skills they have learned to use.

Thousands of adults have learned Hebrew with the Hebrew for Adults series, of which this is Book 3. Linda Motzkin, in coordination with the URJ Hebrew Literary Task Force, uses her tried-and-true methods to build upon the knowledge developed in Books 1 and 2.

Extra enrichment material, such as commentary on the Torah selections, is provided as well.
This combination of exercises and stimulating content is the key to the success of this series. Bet Is for B'reishit challenges students to learn while providing interesting subject matter to keep the motivated. With additional resources like a full glossary, verb lists and grammar charts, Bet Is for B'reishit is the next step for any adult on the path to becoming a Hebrew-literate Jew.
