For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one accord. — Zephaniah 3:9
The revival of the Hebrew language is one of the miracles of modern Israel. Through much of Jewish history, Hebrew remained the language of the Bible and Jewish ritual, but Hebrew had developed very little in centuries. However, thanks to people from all walks of life – from visionaries to everyday Israelis – Hebrew is now the native, modernized language of Israeli life and culture. It is used in conversation and literature, media and technology, music and sports.
In this course we will begin to learn Hebrew conversation, reading and writing, including grammar and vocabulary. We will learn how Hebrew has developed, and continues to develop. In this way we will appreciate the central role Hebrew plays in all aspects of modern Jewish and Israeli life.
This course complements the course “Hebrew 1 (Biblical).” It is beneficial, but not necessary, to register for both courses.
