I’m getting better at Hebrew. I’ve been teaching myself over the past few years in order to teach the kids that were in my Sunday School class, but now that I have the alphabet down my skill seems to be increasing at a slightly faster pace. Perhaps the results of the effort are simply more noticeable now.

I spent the last two days sitting through multiple services for Rosh Hashanah, and I’ve been able to follow the prayers with my finger on the page as they are spoken. I can’t always read them at the same pace, but I know which word I’m on and could read it if I had more time. I can read the common words quicker.

This is exciting.
