Learn the Ve’ahavta Prayer in Hebrew!
Since Hebrew is the original language of the Tanach (the Old Testament), learning Biblical Hebrew can deepen your understanding of the Word of God (the Bible), and therefore, your relationship with God. Firstly, this Hebrew poster makes it easy and possible for anyone to learn these verses in their original Hebrew language. Secondly, it looks great in a frame and can provide visual inspiration to you and others.
The Ve’ahavta prayer is the prayer immediately following the Shema in Deuteronomy 6:5-9. The Shema (Deut. 6:4), together with Ve’ahavta is also the first section on a Mezuzah scroll and is a reminder to love God with all our hearts, our souls, and our strength:
Deut. 6:5-9 Translation: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These words that I command you today are to be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall speak of them when you sit at home and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up. And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
How does it work?
Each Hebrew word is broken into syllables and transliterated using the English alphabet. The forward-slash (“/”) separates between syllables and the capitals point to where the accent should be. Pronounce each syllable by itself, then pronounce the entire word as a whole before moving on to the next word. In addition, each Hebrew word is translated into English, so you can understand what it means within the context. Therefore, with just a little practice, you will be able to recite these verses in Hebrew and above all, gain a deeper understanding of the Word of God!

In these videos, I teach the Hebrew pronunciation of each verse very slowly, syllable-by-syllable, word-by-word, so you can follow along. I also recite the entire section in fluent Hebrew, so you can hear it as a whole. With a little bit of practice, you will be able to recite these verses in Hebrew all by yourself!
