Hebrew Roots


It's a great time to include more PraiseMoves Alphabetics in your classes. The letters for the Hebrew word for “Religion” — Dalet (Door) plus Tav (the Cross or the Sign). “Religion” in  Hebrew = “The DOOR to the CROSS!”

“Parsley is likened to the hyssop branch used to put the blood on the doorpost for Passover. ‘The Door to the Cross' reminds us of the Blood of the Lamb applied to the ‘doorposts' of our hearts!”

PraiseMoves Alphabetics – The Word for “Religion” in Hebrew is Dat



Dalet + Tav = The Door to the Cross – in Hebrew we read from right to left.

Originally, Tav looked like a CROSS, but it was changed to the way we see Tav today shortly after the Resurrection of Jesus. Wonder why? Consider what “Religion” means in Hebrew! “The Door to the Cross.”


Dalet – Stand feet together, right arm out to side, palm facing forward; bring left hand in behind, placing back of hand and fingers close to right shoulder blade; switch arms after 4 verses. Reach left hand back to grab right fingers,  stretch, reverse.

Tav – Start with a modified Cross first. From The Altar posture, bend one knee and touch the sole of that foot to the ankle of the outstretched leg. Place the weight on the bent knee bring the opposite hand up, palm forward. Your arms should be in the shape of a cross. Same on the other side.

Now return to the other side to prepare for the more challenging Cross posture. You may repeat the modified Cross if you prefer. From The Altar, stack one foot on top of the other so the insides of the feet are touching. If this is too difficult at first, one foot may be in front of the other for balance. When you have your balance, lift your top arm up, palm facing forward.

What's a Haggadah? What's a Seder Meal?

Click Here for downloadable guide to show you how to hold a Spirit-filled Seder Meal –>Messianic Jewish Inspirational Passover Haggadah!

A downloadable inspirational GIFT from a friend.

The word haggadah means to tell, or to relate. The Haggadah is “the Telling,” a vivid narrative which is set in the context of a parent-child dialogue.

It refers to one of the most important aspects of the seder: the recitation of the historical account of Passover and the Exodus from Egypt. Seen from a Christian or Messianic perspective, we see that Jesus Christ our Messiah brought us out of the land of bondage (sin) and purchased our redemption for us.

Evonne has put together a wonderful tool you can share with your PraiseMoves students and family to help bring this important Jewish Holy Day alive with new meaning for Christian believers.

  1. Thank you Evonne for sharing this insight to Passover. I LOVE IT! I will definitely implement your ideas in my classes and I know God will touch hearts. Mine sure was touched. God Bless You! He IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!

  2. Great job Evonne! That was a wonderful idea. I am so glad you shared that information. 😀 Blessings to you! You inspired me to take my classes to the next level.

  3. Thank you for sharing, Evonne! I’ve had opportunities in the past to share a seder meal with Messianic Jewish friends, but to incorporate this with PraiseMoves classes adds a whole new dimension. Your ideas are great and I look forward to sharing with my students.
    Blessings are ours to share!!

  4. Thank you Evonne for sharing this information and blessing the PraiseMoves family with your
    Pesach is such a wonderful opportunity for the significance of Yeshua/Jesus death and resurrection to be shared with everyone. I have even had unbelievers at previous Passover Seders just be really blessed at a seder, so I would encourage everyone to really have a go at having a seder meal, even if with just your family at first, and then with other churched friends or whoever.
    Thank you again Evonne.
    And may all of you be richly blessed this Passover season.
    Baruch HaShem

  5. Thank you for sharing so much with us Evonne. My group were praying for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people at the end of class this Thursday- having done the Weeping Willow (‘by the rivers of Babylon’)and felt the sorrow of then and now.
    Smile box is really funky – I have personalized the wonderful poster you made and will send this out to students and friends. I have worked out a sequence of Hebrew postures and some’ flow thru’s’ that spell out Hebrew words (that is fun to do from Frank Seekins book). I’m planning to take parsley and salt water, and make the sweet apple mixture (does charoset mean ‘sweet apple?’ and what does ‘sedar’ mean?). May you be blessed as you have blessed us! My heart is dancing! Heidi Acland Devon, U.K.

  6. Wonderful – especially the bricks! Could you please write the names of cheres Hebrew letters as i’m not sure I read them all properly yet.
    Also – I hope i’m not being a pain – what does haggadah mean – it must have hey, alpha, dalit and gimmel in it? So something to do with raising God high,go through/be sanctified (the door) look and see/behold Him? Thank you! Heidi U.K.

  7. Thanks Evonne! I finally got around to listening to the recording, and I loved what you had to say! I’m doing a special Lenten themed series this month and am excited to see that Passover begins on Monday the 25th, the last day of my class before Easter! I’ll try to work in some of your ideas.

    In September and October of last year, my theme was Back to School: Learning the (Hebrew) Alphabet. We had a lot of fun with that and everyone enjoyed learning a little Hebrew!
