Well, if you're ever planning on writing words with vowel points for disambiguation purposes, it'd be a good idea. And it's easier to do if you're learning Biblical Hebrew with some kind of reconstructed Classical pronunciation. But if you're just reading everything Modern Israeli style and keeping up with the vowels is a hassle, then don't worry about it. Just make sure you remember how to recognize them when reading :) . -Stephen (Steg) "involve yourself with the world. reach out. touch. taste. live. trust me on this one, if on nothing else." ~ walter slovotsky, _guardians of the flame_
