Does anyone know of a good word frequency list for learning modern Hebrew?

I'm learning modern Hebrew on my own, and I'm looking for a good up-to-date word frequency list. There are plenty of resources available for Biblical Hebrew, but obviously that leaves out a lot of modern vocabulary.
The best I could find online was this
, but it's over 20 years old. Also, it doesn't have definitions/glosses with it, so I'd have to look up each word individually as I learn; not too efficient.
I could make do with that if need be, but I was hoping someone knew of something more helpful. At the moment I'm kind of just culling my own frequent words from my textbooks and the Hebrew children's books I'm working my way through. I also have 501 Hebrew Verbs, which helps somewhat.
