  8. I was thinking of starting a thread of the words for praise in Hebrew. Being fairly new here, I was trying to catch up on reading some of the old threads and came across this. So I won't do that after all, but will just bump this up for those who were not here years ago, who may find this interesting.

    I love this! ENJOY!
