Resources for Families

These transliteration files are shared for the purpose of adult caregivers supporting their children in Hebrew learning. As part of our learning goals for Hebrew, we encourage the children to rely on their knowledge of the Hebrew letters and decoding skills. Please do not share these files with your children.


Our transliteration is written differently than what you might recognize from a siddur (prayer book), as we have written it out in phonetic English. Where the siddur would write "Elohim," we have written, "Eh-low-heem" to ensure that the adults supporting our learners can support their children with accurate pronunciation.


If you have any questions about how to best use these documents or feel that your child is needing more support, please reach out to us at

If you are looking for versions of the recordings that can be slowed down or skipped and replayed,  downloadable versions of the recordings are available.
