I remember eagerly looking forward to buying my weekly copy of Sha'ar La'matchil each Friday. I couldn't wait to see if perhaps this could be the week that I made it through the entire paper without encountering an unknown word. I loved the easy Hebrew on the backpage, as well as all of the current news stories written at a basic level. This truly was a godsend to new Hebrew students, and I pray that it will make a return.
