Aleph, Beth, Gimel, Daleth

No, those aren't the names of my children, they're the first four letters of the Hebrew alphabet, which I began learning this week as part of my leap back into academic life. I'm taking Introductory Hebrew Grammar via the Internet through New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

I'm incredibly excited about the possibility of reading the Old Testament in the same language in which it was inspired, although I've heard all the rumors about Hebrew and have no illusions of this being an easy study. What about you? If you had the opportunity, would you find the effort it would take to learn Hebrew worthwhile?
