The goal of this page is for Truthseekers who want to pronounce these Hebrew names correctly to be able to do so without having to actually listen to each word being pronounced - simply by understanding the symbols we use in our transliterations of Hebrew terms. We have a scripture download which uses these symbols in all Hebrew names. If you learn this chart, at least the vowels, you will pronounce these names better than any "modern hebrew" speaker, because "modern hebrew" is a revenant Frankenstein-like language, reanimated from pieces of corrupt dead language, and does not resemble ancient Hebrew well.
