Handwritten Hebrew Alphabet

The Hebrew language has both a print and a cursive script just like we do in English. While cursive in English is taught in all schools, it isn’t widely used in everyday writing. However, Israelis and Hebrew speakers will primarily use cursive script for handwriting. Consequently, if you are learning modern Hebrew, you will want to learn how to write in cursive. You can see exactly how to handwrite Hebrew cursive letters in the second image on this post.

Most Bar and Bat Mitzvah students need only look at the printed version with block letters. With so many different fancy fonts out there, it can be difficult to know which lines are part of the letter and which lines are simply stylistic choices. This first image not only demonstrates how to handwrite block Hebrew letters, but the photo also includes little arrows which show you the exact order of how you should draw each line. Use this example to guide your drawing the Hebrew letters on your own as you complete the B’nai Mitzvah Academy Hebrew workbook or other exercises you are currently using to advance your Hebrew training.

The vowel symbols will look the same whether you are handwriting Hebrew in printed block letters or in cursive.
