Kavanah I is a Hebrew prayer study text, the first in a three book series, for students who have already spent one year or term learning to read Hebrew. Ten key prayers are covered, one per chapter. The target vocabulary for each prayer is taken from one or two key phrases that provide insight into the prayer's meaning. Students gain familiarity with the structure of the service and the origin and function of the prayers through lessons, exercises and fun puzzles. They are also rewarded, line by line, as comfort reading the prayers' words is achieved. Prayers covered in this first volume: Basic Blessings, Modeh Ani, Barechu, Yotser Or, Ma'ariv Aravim, Shema, Veahavta, Shalom Aleichem, Kiddush for Friday Evening.
