Welcome to LiveJudaism.com
A beautiful bris. Thank you so much for sharing. I haven’t ever seen one. Mazel Tov to you and your family.
You guys look great!!
This is so beautiful, I love learning about the true faith…thanks so much for posting…shalom
Just met Rivka at Starbucks … looking forward to tonight !
I see you. You sound fab.
Hello everyone! We are just getting set up and making sure everything is good for you. Enjoy!
Are you hearing an echo?
No echo, she just sounds far away
hi hi no echo here! 🙂
Sounds good here
I dont hear an echo
No echo 🙂
Sounds good. Yea
you’re much louder when you’re near the computer though. it’s a little quiet then you’re standing by the table.
You sound good here.
It’s difficult to hear.. she sounds far too far away
still not good?
Hi, from Florida! (Nikki). You are looking and sounding great!
Hello from Outback Australia ready to join in..
Your audio and video is fine.
Tuning in from Tasmania! 🙂
Amazing. Thank you
B”H Rivka Malka!!
What is the name of the company where we can purchase the Hebrew Letters from?
Can everyone hear?
I can hear
We can 🙂
Shalom dear sister!
Hi Rabbi! its DBH!! this is awesome!!
Shalom again to everyone. There are a huge amount of Shalom’s we’re getting from all over the world.
loud and clear 😀
at some point can you show the box of the cards close up.. cant read what they are. Toda
she’s doing it now
lol glad to be of service.. tampa florida.. 🙂
you helped everyone. TY
You sound fine how you’re speaking now
A bit of trouble seeing whiteboard.
OK I’ll make sure when she uses it, you can see it. TY
There’s an echo and cannot hear clealy!
how about now?
for future.. the angle of the white board doesn’t show what was written on it….
ok, will straighten it
Sorry everyone. We’re back on
OOPS LOST LIVE STREAM FOR A MINUTE ..
eek. I lost you
feed stopped- or something…
Refresh. It’s back up 😀
Feed stopped..lost you!
how about now?
frozen feed 🙁
should be good now
It’s like a “K”
i keep getting bumped 🙁 you must have a ton of viewers! <3
we do have many viewers. Sorry about getting bumped
I goes off and on intimitantly.
if you guys turn down/off all your bright lights it might be easier to see the white board.
for now, we’re going to use the cards. seems to work better.
Maybe try tilting the right side of the white board out towards the camera?..:)
mines frozen 🙁
Im getting bumped too lol
cards are good
<3 you guys !
I know you read from right to left but does it matter in Hebrew the way you do the strokes of writing the letter? Like writing the stick or the “c” part first. Thanks.
no problem at all. whatever is comfortable for you
Thank you! In Chinese when we write there’s an actual order we have to write or it is considered “wrong”. Better to start with good habits. LOL
This is great, I love the kabalah of the alphabet. I already know how to read Hebrew and I know some basic conversation. I was wondering if (I think I got an email about this class from Shabbat.com or Chabad.org) either of those websites (or you!) will send out a later email when we will be getting to conversation? Todah rabah!
I believe so. We’ll see what we can do. If you sign up to rivkamalka.com we will let you know that way.
The cards are good
good to hear. Thank you
Garden of Emuna great book 😀
Garden of Emunah by Rabbi Lazer Brody
I wish that you could see us. You would see how awesome this whole thing is. 🙂
So good to hear. Trying to keep up with comments. Lots of people. b”H!
But that’s the awesome part!!! Good luck buddy
Shalom from Brazil!
Amazing. Welcome from Baltimore.
My husband and I are loving the class.
Can you spell the vowel under the letter please.
ready for bet/beis
Happy to hear! This is amazing.
You read my mind ! I’m sephardic from Spain .
Great. Our camera man is also somewhat Sephardic
Im sephardic too!
Welcome to our Sephardic crowd
I love this class !
beis kinda looks like a bird
Are the regular letters and script letters too much or too confusing?
got it! this is great!!
Both are great for me 🙂 Todah!
this is helpful because i only know how to write in cursive. i’m trying to practice writing in print!
Is this Abba ? For Father’s Day ?
lol its all good
Your both a bracha, toda
Halftime show almost here
are you going to say what abba means?
this is good
you’re awesome, Rivka Malka! kol hakavod! 🙂
some people may not know..
What is the word with the ba and ca???
i think she is just doing sounds
She said we made a word though???
Not so sure what you mean. Let me know
At the end before the break, she said about the word she made with the silent letter
Please try to mention which are cursive letters and which are not, for us beginners. 🙂 Thank you for this!
The cursive is the one she is writing (and the alef looks a bit different than what you see in printed Torahs and such). The ones we see most often are like אבּ
ok I let her know
This is awesome!!!
Thank you. Not really working well here in Arizona. I may need to listen tomorrow at the office.
We all a lil ADD
YAY!!! Half Time PARRRRTY!!!!
The legendary Pinny!
This is fabulous! Learning and music as well..
B’H, truly a gifted voice from Hashem.
I would totally buy this on a cd
Concert at the end. That was ateaser
Todah!!!! YAY!!! That was awesome!!!
Great, Thank you
I’m having trouble seeing the letters you are writing. There seems to be a glare there on the screen. Are there two aleph’s and two bet’s?
Will you do a more advance class at some point?
Hi Nitza Chana. Not sure yet
Please donate on the donate button on livejudaism.com Thank you
Yes Olive and Baze- got it!
I got it.
beis is way cuter in cursive 😀
Dreidel !!! Gimmel!
What is the difference between the beis with the little thign underneath and without? (Sorry I forgot the name)
it makes it a b or a v
Not the dot, the T mark under
Baiz with a dot in middle makes the “b” sound. Without the dot makes the v sound. Is that what you meant to ask?
the v sound is the letter vaiz
The T underneath, not the dot in the middle
I’m afraid I’m at base 0 here.
the t underneath is a kamatz….the ahhhh sound remember?
Gettig it now.
Just donated! Jerome (sp) is such an awesome guy!
thank you soooo much
So the cards are in Print and the ones shes writing are Cursive?
Dot in the bet, right?
b = בּ
v = ב
is gimmel’s numerical value 3?
Is Lamdeni a good book to get?
hmmm.never heard of it. by who?
I had it when i made Aliyah in 2010, sadly i had to return to NZ and left it behind in Israel Sam.
Gimel is cute with a smiley face
Gimel with a face looks like Elvis. LOL
Can you sing us the song with the whole “Alef Beit”?!?! ?
I’ll ask her if she can do it
That’s IT Pinni!!!!
well we tried
It was GREAT!!!
the alef looks like lc
I think this is called Rashi letters….. Not sure
how do your write the word Bracha
(sorry, I don’t know how to type the vowels) בּרכה
you guys are great!! lol
now a little dance with it?….im joking joking
maybe next time 🙂
she is too fast.. I haven’t take a note, she moved to the next word 🙂
sometimes she is, i just write down what i half hear and will check back later
try to check later 🙂
Sorry. there is a recording that we’ll be putting up.
it’s ok. should treat us as a kindergarten student who is first time to hold the pencil LOL
Gimel is Elvis and is hiding…right? lol
absolutely. We all know he’s still alive hiding behind the gimmel
If we want to practice through the week, what flashcards or book do you recommend we buy?
Alef bet wheels by JET. It’s a box of the letters with the vowels under it. There are books also but we need to see which is the best recommended.
does it mean door
if we give then it will open up a door
Numeric values for gimmel and daleth please ?
gimmel = 3, daled = 4
is everyone following? Tell me what you want to go over.
Does this count as conversational hebrew as well?
a quick review and a bit slower pace!
sometimes its just a glare on the board…sorry
maybe someone can loan you an easel for next week!
good idea. growing pains…
it was still great! i am so excited to be strengthening my Hebrew. 🙂 kol hakavod!
size of letters is fine
I think you will find that ‘some’ people are only used to Block, and not script maybe?
Can you sound it out as you write it slower please
It’s fine in script! Easier to write..
Rivka Malka went to get an Alef Baiz book
remember you can find it online and cut and paste it
What is that book, please give us all the author and title…
Alef Binah. We have to find out who it’s by.
we can see it
can you spell the name? Olive Benna? I dont know. 🙁
how do you spell the name of the book maker?
We’re missing the cover. Will have to check
Y’all are amazing for this!! Thanks from West Virginia!!!
Hello Tikva from West VA. Amazing!!!
Not Virginia. lol WV.
i thought the kamatz and patach sounded the sound
There’s the raw sound like the baiz has a b sound but then when you add the vowel, it says how to say the b sound like boo, bah, boh…
Here is the book
Are those cards that your using with the rotational dials underneath them available to be purchased?, if so, where from please…Toda
aleph bet wheels by JET. Probably online and in jewish book stores
Shalom Rivka.Thank you so much!
Great ! Thank you for sharing this knowledge !
this was so much fun. thank you so much!
Very nicely done! Thank you!
This is awesome. It made total sense. 🙂
Thank you SO much.
It was very good but next time please slow down. 🙂
I’ll let her know
Fabulous! Thank-you. Never thought I’d learnt the script, but I’m finding it easier than the print, ironically.
Thank you it was great 🙂 Can you spell Kumats?
i think you did well spelling it. There’s no official spelling Elglish spelling
Surprised how much I remember from decades ago in Hebrew School! A great class. Really enjoyed!
skoiyach! thank you sooooo much! this was wonderful. i already know the aleph beis but i really learned a lot about the history of the letters and different associations with the words connected to them!
Amazing. Thank you

Love this music which is bringing my soul to the throne of worship…. are any of his songs on youtube, since there is no cd? I don’t want to stop listening. 🙂
search pinny schachter on youtube
That music is speaking to my soul. Wow, moved to tears. What a blessing. Thank you.
so happy to hear
Definately need to get some cd’s done, awsome voice.
I live in the middle of the Outback in Queensland Australia where there are no Jewish Communities nearby.. so the process of converting to Judaism is helped by such devotion to give to others by you Sam and Rivka.. thankyou.. thankyou..
aish.com, simpletoremember.com, torahanytime.com, chabad.com those are the best websites for Jewish learning.
You could always try to find people on Facebook that are near to you that are also interested.
Nice Music !
As much as possible I would love to see him at my Church !

All of you actually ! We are One !

I am deeply moved and blessed.
So happy to hear. Your welcome.
Great class thank you!
2 question if you don’t mind. Sorry if this was addressed and I missed it.
What is the value of the Dalid? (Not sure of the spelling)
Where can I find a book like the children’s learning book you used?
Again thank you!
daled = 4, Alef Binah is the book
Are we talking about gematriya here?
I´m having a lot of fun! Thanks a lot Rivka!!! I started to learn letters by myself but It´s like having a mom teaching me to write like Mom taught me spanish :). I totally love you teaching the regular hebrew letters, because the ones I´ve taught myself are the ones like in the Torah. Ahavas ha Brios! And I´ve listen to Garden of Emuna!
Great feedback, thank you!! I love that you’re here.
hi Rivka! I missed the last two classes I looked it up in livejudaism.com and in youtube and I can’t find them ?, could you please help me get to the links of the previous classes? I was making so much progress… Thanks, Pao
HI Pao, Im so glad you asked. The last class is a having a hard time uploading. I keep trying and Ill keep on trying! When its up youll find it on youtube. The class before that is already up on youtube on my channel. Wishing you a great day!
Thanks so much Rivka, I already fixed the timezone in my Calendar for Sunday´s 9p.m. Eastern Time (I had it Mountain Time :?… ), just realized. I just watched lesson 5/9 so I´ve been to half the lessons 😀 Golden Star!!! And with Hashem´s help will stick to the live class on Sundays!
Only one favor, could you please remind me of the Booklet that you are using to teach the class? Do you guys sell it? Thanks a lot. I´m already starting to follow along the vowels, yey!!!
This is like the kindergarden but with a yidish teacher and with Ahavas ha Brios!!! THANKS Toda Rava!!
You totally got the concept in a nutshell!
Missed the first class but I will be sure to join the second one if I am allowed to! I will attempt to catch up by watching the recording of the last stream @rivkamalkaperlman:disqus
Rivka, you won’t believe this, but your first lesson already helped me with my work!!! I was able to read the sounds of a prayer because of what you taught! Coming back next Sunday for more. 🙂 🙂
I loved the lesson. I can’t believe I just learned 5 letters and two vowels in Hebrew. Thank you so much for teaching this.
I can’t see the whiteboard well…maybe if you dimmed the lights a little or turned one of them off?
Can you find GOE in a public library? I’m trying to cut down on the amount of money I spend on books.
Hi ! Im from Guatemala …I miss the first class, for sure I’m next sunday….
What time would it air in Phoenix, Az.? I missed the first class.
i am not sure when they are going to get started
Hey everybody! We’ll be getting started very soon.

Thank you so much for sharing! What a blessing.
beautiful thank you !!
Awesome story….thanks for sharing
Thanks to everyone who joined on tonight’s class! Have a wonderful week!
you held up together graciously
Would love to hear the end of his story.
Fantastic! What a blessing all of you are. Thank you so much to Israel as well for sharing part of his amazing journey with us. I also enjoyed the story of the 100 dollar bill, I have heard it before and it makes an excellent point.
Hi Karen, thank you so much for listening!
Appreciate time and effort in to doing this.
Thanks a lot Yisroel for sharing your story, man you made me cry!!! I so much related cause as a child I was just like you, obsessed with the bible and so call “Old Testament”, it took me 27 years to find torah and ejad, since then there’s no way back. My story does not have a happy ending yet caused by Costa Rica not being as open to conversion as US. It’s been since 2009 I follow Hashem and his Torah.
Thanks so much for the 100 dollar bill story. I needed to hear that!!! I didn’t get the name of the Bro that told it.
Thanks Rivka, it’s a joy and a relax this class. I am learning a lot!!! Question please, was it the same script and printed for the letters you taught this week?
Would love to meet you guys in Baltimore, I have a couple friends over there.

What does Mazal Tov mean? How do I greet someone in Hebrew.
Mazal Tov means congratulations. You can always say Shalom, everyone uses it to say goodbye and hello.
Remind us again please which one we’ll see in the Torah and which one is used on a daily basis please…script/print. Thanks.
Print will be in the Torah. Use script when you’re writing.
What is the difference between the two Mem’s?
the first one comes at the beginning of the word
They look different, but are the same letter?
They do look different, the differences of the two are which one is meant for the beginning of the word, and which one is meant for the end. But yes, they both are the same letter, just different forms.
Thank you for the letting go story… I just logged on at the beginning on this story and needed to hear it.
Good job everyone!!
reish is the second letter of the Torah after Beit of course
Yes, got it!
what I was trying to say is that the first verse in the Torah Reish is the second letter
