A Hebrew Primer by Dr. Benjamin Herson
Dr. Herson is a noted educator, poet and scholar.

Secret of the Pyramid is a Hebrew Primer for teachers and independent students, a guide to teach children.

Since every syllable generated by the Pyramid is a no-nonsense sound they are found in classical and modern texts as integral parts of the language.

Matching the 4 types of syllables with their counterparts in the Bible, Prayer Book, dictionary and newspaper speeds up the process of recognition with amazing results.

The 4 types generate 6 primary vowel-patterns which make reading without vowel signs simpler for the mature student.

This method of teaching and learning Hebrew reading is scientific and systematic, no longer a haphazard activity. It offers a life-long mastery in reading the Hebrew word.

The syllabic analysis of the Hebrew leads to a clear understanding of its root-structure, its place in the dictionary, and its meaning. In brief, it encourages reading by comprehension as an adventure of the mind.
