Homework for November 15, 2010:

Study this five-verse section in Hebrew from Parshat Vayishlah: Gen. 35:9-13.

  • Everyone: Practice reading the section out loud at least five times before class.  I recommend doing it at least once per day.
  • Advanced students: Translate the section as best you can, using Hebrew dictionaries and any other references you like.  Write down your English translation.
  • Advanced students: Make a list of all the verbs in this section just as they appear in the text.  List the attributes of each verb, i.e., its shoresh, binyan, infinitive, p/g/n (person/gender/number), and translation.  Do the best you can.
  • Beginning/intermediate students: In the text book, review Chapters 4-8.  Make a list of the Hebrew grammar concepts you need to work on.  Memorize the vocabulary for these five chapters.  If you have time left over, try the verb assignment.
