Hebrew

Hebrew is the key to connecting students with Jewish texts, prayer, people, and of course, Israel. The challenges to making these key connections, however, are considerable. Many cite lack of interest in second-language acquisition in the U.S., lack of clarity for program goals, insufficient pipeline and training for Hebrew instructors, and limited interest in and relevance for students and their families. New methods, curricula, and resources aim to overcome these hurdles and “restore the crown of Hebrew to its ancient glory.”
