Samaritan Hebrew is a Hebrew dialect used by the Samaritans for reading the Torah and prayers. It is, therefore, generally confined to liturgical contexts. Samaritan Hebrew has been described by Zeev Ben-Hayyim in his “A Grammar of Samaritan Hebrew Based on the Recitation of the Law in Comparison with the Tiberian and Other Jewish Traditions” (English edition, with the assistance of Abraham Tal; Winona Lake, IN, 2000).

On this page, some recordings of texts in that Hebrew dialect are presented.

1) The Samaritan blessing before reading from the Torah.

2) The Samaritan Hebrew reading of the text for the Passover offering (Exod 12)
