Re: Thanks, and request for Hebrew list information

There are a couple of lists going that I'm aware of.

The first is a sister list to this one, as has a similar history and
also has Jonathan Robie as listowner. It's Biblical Hebrew, and you
subscribe just like you did for this list, either at or by sending a message to

The second list Hebraisticum <>. It's
been a long time since I signed up for that one, but I seem to recall
that it is a "majordomo" list, which means that you would have to send a
message to with the text "subscribe
hebraisticum" A word of warning: this list tends to have more
posts in German than does Biblical Hebrew. But the majority of postings
have been in English.

Actually, there is a lot of overlap in membership of these two. You
probably would get 95%+ of the postings by joining Biblical Hebrew.

Oh, and as far as hebrew in the Word environment: unless you can get
hold of the Israeli version of Windows, you'll have to resign yourself
to either reversing the text (either as you type it or with a macro) or
using alternate transliterations that run from left to right.

Hope this helps,
