Why is Hebrew so important, and why would I want to study it?
The first five books of the Hebrew Bible and most of the rest of the Hebrew Bible, are written in Hebrew. As we study the original Hebrew words used in the Bible, we can unlock meanings of the scriptures that were lost in translations.
For example: the word father in Hebrew, ab, comes from the letters aleph and bet. These letters come from ancient pictographs that look like like an ox head and a tent (which is what a house was for the ancient Hebrews). So a father literally means “strong as a tent, or tent pole.” The father was to be a strong leader of the home. Cool, right? If you watch the video above, you will see a presentation by a man who makes totally amazing connections between Joseph Smith, Hebrew, and reformed Egyptian, which the Book of Mormon was translated from.
Hebrew is so fascinating! When you learn these ancient pictographs behind the Hebrew alphabet letters, a whole new world of meaning is unlocked. Come learn with us!
Martin Luther once said, “If I were younger I would want to learn this language [i.e. Hebrew],for without it one can never properly understand the Holy Scriptures. For that reason they have said correctly: ‘The Jews drink out of the original spring, The Greeks drink out of the stream flowing out of the stream, The Latins, however, out of the puddle.”
Come learn about the Hebrew way, the organic way of learning. Immerse yourself in this world so that you are on fire and can create a culture of God, family, learning, light, love, and life in your home. Come learn why Hebrew is the language of family and liberty! You will increase your conviction that God, the Creator, is the designer of nature and the governor of the universe. Come discover what hidden meanings from God are waiting for you to help you in your challenges!
This is not a class about the technicalities or grammar of Hebrew, but rather the poetry and symbolism of the Hebrew alphabet.

Here is what others are saying about the class:
“Thanks for opening my eyes and mind to wonder.”
“I walked around the park thinking about the idea of protect and shield which is part of Samech. It made me think of the Sacred Grove where Joseph Smith went to pray because it looked like a safe, secluded and protected place to be.”
“After discussing Tav and looking for it in nature, I was reminded of the story from my core book where the father names the mountains/valleys, rivers after his sons hoping they will be constant and strong. It made me think of the idea of beginning with the end in mind – I thought of mountains, valleys and rivers as geologic monuments.”
“I saw another quirky coincidence, in view of the reveal-conceal idea in Mem is that one of the readings for the O. D. Mentor class is by Bastiat and it is called “That which is Seen and Not Seen.” Christine,VA

Provide yourself and your children a solid Hebraic foundation in “The Book” which has endured time.
The House of the Book* (scroll down to see a definition of the House of The Book) is an aspect of the Hebrew Way. It was an organic lifestyle which unlocked the inward abilities of the True Self. For us today, only after our House of the Book has been nurtured, can we really enter The House of Study.
The first step to understanding the House of the Book is to unlock the mystery of the Hebrew language.
*What is the House of the Book?
In an earlier Biblical Hebrew culture, the first lessons in a child’s education, in his House of the Book, came from the Books of Moses which teach God’s laws. These entail the first and most important relationship with God as the Sovereign King and His children as Vassal Kings and of honor and obedience to His laws and the blessings that are attached.
For example, for most of America, it is common knowledge that the Beings on this Earth are children of a God and Creator of some kind, and, as we Beings follow the laws and principles of releasing our pains and sorrows to Christ, we receive the blessings of peace, love and joy.
As we center our life education on “the Book,” Laws and Principles of Truth and God, we will be developing a relationship with the Author of those Laws and the knowledge and understanding of how this Lawgiver works in our lives.
The “House” can be explained by looking at the principles of the Hebrew Alphabet. Each letter is a symbol and has many meanings, not just a sound, like the English alphabet. The name of the second letter of the Hebrew Alphabet is Beit. It is spoken as “buy-it” with an accent on the second syllable. This word, Beit, represents a House or that which is within the house. Some of the other meanings of this second letter are: a sanctuary, a temple or what is within those places. Some other explanations are: A house that houses a family within its walls; A body which houses our spirits within; A place of growth in understanding the many paradoxes of life. Within a “house,” relationships are the key lessons and the personal relationship of coming to truly know our Maker is primary.
