I am working on my syllabification and was wondering if there is a resource that has tons of words to practice and check on.

One quick thought would be to use the concordance tool on your Hebrew Bible of choice to make a list of lexemes. You could then practice syllabification on those and check your answers with your lexicon.

I also know that there is a workbook for Basics of Biblical Hebrew (https://www.logos.com/product/34165/basics-of-biblical-hebrew-workbook) and there should be some syllabification exercises there.

This resource is on pre-pub and may have some syllabification exercises (https://www.logos.com/product/156309/learning-biblical-hebrew-workbook-a-graded-reader-with-exercises)

Excellent. Thanks, I will check into that. I already have Basics of Biblical Hebrew and ordered the Biblical Hebrew Workbook some weeks ago. 

I tried to open concordance, but it says it is unavailable. Not sure what that means. 

Thanks!

I spoke to customer service and products and contents and they said that concordance tool would not do this, that is, to help me with syllabization of words. But thanks!

My thought was to use the concordance tool to simply generate a word list. It wouldn't do the syllabification. But you could practice dividing them up. It's just giving you words to syllabify.

Phil, I received a suggestion that solved my problem. Adding the transliteration line onto my interlinear (I really dislike transliteration) as it has 100% of all of the words as they appear in the Hebrew Bible. But your help made me go back and not give up on this. So thanks, many times thanks.

I would expect that the Hebrew cantillation marks would help identify syllables ...

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

MJ is right...BHS, BHW, etc. will show cantillation which corresponds to syllabic emphasis. If you have Strong's, it depicts the stressed syllable with a bold font (at least it does in L3--not sure about L7).
